FOOD in Songkhla Old Town – Coconut ice cream with a raw egg anyone?

I’m of the opinion that an egg goes with everything.

But not many may agree, especially if it’s ice cream!

Yes, raw egg yolk with your ice cream. Yay or nay? 🙂

What you see below is homemade coconut/vanilla ice cream from Songkhla Old Town. And what makes it refreshingly different is the addition of RAW egg yolk to the whole ensemble, after which a drizzle of condensed milk and a scoop of Milo (chocolate powder) dusting completes this endearing dessert. You may opt to add palm seeds, bananas, candies and other goodies if you like. There’s a whole lot of add-ons you may choose from but banana, milo and extra condensed milk is by far the most popular. Price is about from 20-40 baht (RM2 – RM4) depending on your order.

Here’s Vincent from The Star- He was hesitant with the egg yolk at first but in the end he went all out and added it anyways to his ice cream! Good for you Vincent! 🙂

This small little shop is one of the many along Nang Ngam Road in Old Town of Songkhla city. A stroll here is like a blast to the past, in a good, nostalgic way.

Refreshing sweet coconut water is another option if you do not want ice cream but most of us had 2 orders each; one ice cream and one coconut juice! 🙂

    Gimme the raw egg anytime with any ice-cream…I’ll skip d rest =)

      Fuh! So many of the other media didn’t dare to try, good to know ur up for it 😛

    ooo, i guess if the egg is pasteurized and handled with great hygiene, then it’d be definitely worth trying. i don’t think i’d mind the taste, but the risk of salmonella poisoning is scary. actually, this could be a fun recipe to try at home, since you could quite easily buy both ice cream and raw eggs from the supermarket. i wonder what ice cream flavor might work best with egg, heh. maybe black sesame 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      Hahaha.. I doubt it Sean. It’s roadside SOngkhla! Heheh..

    Saw this on my arrival at the office this am. I saw my breakfast again.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Breakfast?? You had this every day when you’re in Thailand? 😀

      1. ALAN

        No I saw this mornings breakfast again one hour after I’d eaten it!

    The Thai coconut ice cream is so sinfully good! But I haven’t try one out with the egg yolk…

    1. rebeccasaw

      Where did you try it?? Maybe this is only in Songkhla?

      1. George Lim

        I tried the coconut ice cream in one of the roadside stall in Phuket and also another time in Bangkok. 🙂

      2. rebeccasaw

        Ahh it’s a Thailand thing then 😛
