Khao niaow mamuang, Thai for mangoes and sticky rice, is one of the most popular dishes in the kingdom. Fresh mangoes combined with coconut milk and sticky rice make for both a fantastic dessert as well as a full meal due to the heavy sticky rice. Korpanich is considered to be one of the best purveyors of this lovely dish, and the proprietors claim that their recipe comes from the Royal Palace kitchen, which is where the grandmother of the clan that owns this establishment once worked. Royalty aside, Korpanich has been in business for over 80 years, they use the finest mangoes, combined with coconuts from Chumphon Province and everyone who walks in here gets pretty bowled over by just how good the dish is.
