Mango and sticky rice cooked in coconut milk is a popular Thai dessert often found on the daily dessert board (they serve one type of dessert each day) at Pure Thai Shophouse. But here they make a signature mark on this dessert with a layer of tiny cooked tapioca pearls tucked in the warm bed of coconut sticky rice; it's served with half a ripe and always sweet mango. It's a subtle but small addition that makes it all the more memorable. I asked if they would eventually serve durian, the glorious stinky fruit that often replaces mango as a topping for this dessert. The waitress winked and said, "Not sure if everyone would like that!" So I ask of you, make the durian request at Pure Thai Shophouse and perhaps one day we'll see it listed on the dessert board.
