Hot Tofu Milk Night-Cap
Recommended: hot tofu milk with a little bit of syrup
Price indication: cheap, THB 5 per bag
One of the pleasures of going around in the evening are all the night food stalls in several places in town. Amongst them, you’ll find the dessert sections. One of my favourites is hot tofu milk which comes at just 5 baht per bag (take it home and drink it before sleeping).
Normally they add too much syrup so then it’s better to omit it and add honey later, or just ask for a littlebit of it.
I’m not sure if it’s as good as hot cow milk before sleeping, my mother always said this induces sleep, but we’re in South East Asia so fresh cow milk is scarce and tofu milk is probably more sustainable 🙂
The quality of the fresh tofu milk differs somewhat over town, if you notice, but overall is a good late night-cap.
You can add some dried fruits such as Ginko and other nuts (which is relatively expensive).
Location: night food stalls all over town, notably Chiang Mai Gate, Nong Hoi Market and Chuang Puak Gate
Open: every evening till late
