For those who are fans of Shibuya honey toast, CODE cafe's new Thai Tea Lava Toast is the perfect way to indulge. Made with thick toast and stuffed with a secret filling, the dish puts a Thai spin on a popular Asian treat.
Thai Tea Lava Toast is a signature dish crafted by CODE's owner and pastry chef Juthamas Sukumvitaya. Juthamas created the popular treat after trying to put a Thai twist on popular Asian desserts such as Shibuya honey toast. “Though French pastries, Japanese cheese tart and Korean treats are popular today, Thais actually prefer the blend of sweet, creamy and salty that they’re used to in Thai desserts," she explains.
To create this perfect balance, Juthamas' Thai Tea Lava Toast consists of a slab of jet black charcoal toast served with whipped cream and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The toast itself is infused with charcoal powder, while the inside of the bread is stuffed with a Thai tea custard that oozes out when the toast is torn apart.
