Bhan Kanom isn’t a restaurant. It’s a market/bake shop in a Thai Town stripmall and home to the best collection of Thai desserts in the city. This is the place you stop at on the way home from work and pick up some mini crispy crepes or a bag of imported Thai candy to eat in your bed later. Or if you’re grabbing dinner at Thai Patio or Ruen Pair (all located in the same stripmall), skip the mango sticky rice at the end and come get it here instead. It’s way better.
