Colorful and bustling, Mae Varee is filled with ripe fruits in season, neatly arranged in wooden racks at the entrance, beckoning the attention of anyone passing by.

Meanwhile, a local quietly prepares mango sticky rice at a quiet checkout counter, fastly placing round after round of sticky rice boxes on top of each other. Coconut milk to pour over is carefully stocked up in a separate plastic bag. It goes the same way for mung beans.

The Food

Mae Varee Mango Sticky Rice

During the order, you can choose to go with the color you want on the sticky rice. At the moment, they offer three different types including white (the original) while green and purple sticky rice is dyed with natural ingredients during the making. I’ve always wondered if they use pandan leaves for the green and black glutinous rice for the purple.

The portion is big enough to feed one, with two big slices of mango cut into smaller pieces. I’m sure you’ll get even more mango than sticky rice per serving so don’t worry if you’ve just had a big meal. Each serving is priced at THB 150.

The mango is fresh and juicy. No wonder why Mae Varee receives such a high ranking on Google with over 1600 positive reviews.

The sticky rice is well cooked till soft with a delicate aroma when eaten hot. Its tasting profile is enhanced even more when you pour the rich, creamy coconut milk on top, and sparkle it with a dash of munch bean. Everything tastes just right for me. The mango is not too squishy or insanely sweet. You’ll love it.
