Delicious Thai Crepe: Khanom Bueang

Khanom Bueang, also known as Thai Crispy Pancakes or Thai Crepes is one of the most popular street snacks/sweet you will find in Thailand. This ancient Thai dessert is actually from the Ayutthaya period. These crepes look a bit like Mexican tacos (as some foreigners have noted!).

Khanom Bueang’s cute little bites look simple but the preparation method has a number of steps! First the  to crepe batter is spread onto the hot plate with a flat spreader called a Kra-ja. Vendors who have been doing this for some time make it look so easy!

When the crepe is just starting to set, a generous helping of white meringue-like cream is spread on top. This is made from egg whites and sugar to create almost a marshmallow-like texture.

Next the cream is topped by sweet or salty toppings such as shredded coconut, Foi Thong (strips of fried eggs or egg yolks), or chopped scallions.

Not only are these bite-sized treats delicious to eat, but they have a lovely pancake aroma which you can smell while walking by on the street. It will make you stop by for a taste!  If you haven’t tried it yet, you should definitely put it to your food tour list! Luckily you can catch Khanom Bueang on our Village of Love tour!
