{Cafe Crush} Melt Me, Bangkok

Melt Me is one of Bangkok’s many dessert cafes – a concept I just can’t get enough of. At this recently opened orange, white and glass cube of a cafe it’s all about desserts made from creamy Hokkaido milk, which hails from the Japanese city Sapporo. It’s used in Melt Me’s chocolates, gelato and even one of its drinks (a ridiculously decadent hot chocolate – basically a huge slab of dark chocolate on a stick that you melt into a cup of hot milk). The staff urge you to try samples of the handmade chocolates (not that my arm needs twisting!), and intriguingly, the gelato and sorbet menu promises some not-yet-available flavours including….beer!

Tried & loved

Chocolate lava cake (129 baht)

Hokkaido milk hot chocolate (149 baht)

3 scoops of gelato – dark chocolate, hazelnut and Hokkaido milk flavours (139 baht)

Chocolate samples – green tea, macadamia and Hokkaido dark (free!)

For more on the story behind Hokkaido milk and Melt Me, check out this piece in the Bangkok Post, and this one in the Nation. And if you happen to be a Bangkok-bound chocoholic, be sure to add Melt Me to your must-do list!

    Do they have a durian flavor? I’ve heard of garlic ice cream, nutmeg ice cream, but would love to try durian if I could get my hands on it.

    You really should post a warning for dangerously tempting pix like these. I could live in this cafe.
