Nuttaporn is Thai old school at its very best. Located in the super atmospheric Phraeng Phuton Square, which looks more like an Italian piazza than something in Bangkok, this homemade ice cream shop has been going strong for over 70 years now, dishing out superb mango, coconut, and other flavors like coffee, and even durian. The mangoes they use for the ice cream here are the best in the country, and they don't put an excess of sugar in, letting the fresh fruit flavors do all the work. While the ice cream itself is the main draw, now made by the third generation of the family that started this place, it is also worth coming here just to stroll around the neighborhood, which is full of gaily painted row houses, an old antique car garage, tables spilling out onto the street, and a collection of outstanding long running restaurants and shops, all of which are now marked by plaques telling a bit about what each place is famous for.
- Street Food: "The easiest way to get here is to take the river ferry as if you are going to the Grand Palace, and continue up behind the palace and Ministry of Defense building, across the canal, where you can find Phraeng Phuton. Alternatively, if coming from the Khao San Road area, cross Ratchadamnoen Klaeng and walk down Tanao Road for 500 meters or so, and you'll find Phraeng Phuton on your right."
- Best for Street Food Because: For Bangkok's best and oldest homemade ice cream, Nuttaporn is tops!
