Welcome to week 219 (03/19/2015) of Travel Photo Thursday. Thais love their Khanom Wan Thai (dessert). This week I want to introduce you to one of my favorite Thai desserts, Ruam Mit. In fact, it could be my favorite! Sold from a family run stall in Chiang Mai’s Chinatown Wararot Market, I always make my way here every couple of weeks when I’m in Chiang Mai.
And…don’t forget to add your own link to the Travel Photo Thursday line-up…

Ruam Mit is a (delicious) mixture of a variety of different sweets, and (YES) vegetables. Floating in this delicious concoction, which has a faint flowery aroma, you will find tapioca balls (boba), corn, red beans, chunks of sweet potato, strips of shredded coconut, and (very sweet) gelatin strips. The mother and daughter team who run the stall, which is located just outside the entrance to Tom Lam Yai Market make huge stainless steel bowls of ruam mit everyday. I have never seen the stall empty of customers. I am sure it must be one of the most popular food stalls in the entire market, and rightly so!
I’m savoring the sweetness in my mind as I gaze longingly at this photo…. (sad face)
Served over shaved ice, it will not only tantalize your taste buds, but cool you down on a hot Chiang Mai day. The price is perfect too! — 15 Thai Baht!
Even the monks can’t resist!
Wararot Market is one of Chiang Mai’s busiest markets and is located at the end of Chang Moi Road close to the Ping River. You’ll know you are in Chinatown and a stones throw from the market as soon as you walk through the Chinese gate. Turn right at either the first or second side street. You’ll see a red colored walkway that joins the two buildings. The entrance is right at the walkway, and is to the right. You’ll see the sign for the Tom Lam Yai Market, and the Ruam Mit stall is right there. The market is open every day from early morning to early evening. You’ll probably want to get to the Ruam Mit stall before 5pm.
Have you tried Ruam Mit? What did you think?
