Piyawat the Sweetery first came under my radar a couple months back while I drove through the Vic Park strip. With its bright orange sign board saying “the Sweetery” I initially thought off it as a dessert only place. I soon found out that they did proper meals too and decided to come in for lunch on a Thursday.
Piyawat the Sweetery has the usual one dish suspects with a few interesting additions. For lunch, I enjoyed Crispy Prawn Tom Yam. A dish that truely has its own bragging rights with its super creamy tom yum sauce being the highlight. It was simply awesome when paired with fluffy steamed rice. What more can you ask for? Crispy prawns, and fragrant tom yam! Flavour bomb, Definitely not your traditional Thai dish but super potent and delicious!
We also ordered the Pad Thai Gai which is Pad Thai with Chicken. While it did not blow me of my socks or anything, it was definitely cooked well. Which means it is one of the more decent ones out there. I will go back and try their stir fry flat noodles the next time! My sis said it was pretty good when she went there.
Alas, Piyawat the Sweetery is known for their famous desserts. Whether its the Mango Sticky Rice or their Dessert Toasts, the ending is always sweet here.
Piyawat’s Thai Milk Tea Toast was the highlight of my meal. Probably the best I have had since my first encounter with the amazing buttery bread in Taiwan. Fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside with generous amount of butter. Then you have the silky Thai milk tea which was silky smooth and fragrant without an overpowering sweetness courtesy of the tea. Lastly, the coconut ice cream was generous bits of coconuts making it absolutely brilliant! So much to like on that dessert plate. Very well executed and not just your boring toast with “vanilla” ice cream though sometimes that might be all you are craving for.
If you are looking for something new, fun and different to eat in town the definitely to the Victoria Park to try Piyawat the Sweetery. Also note that Piyawat the Sweetery closes at 6pm every day folks, so definitely do not plan a dinner here unless they change their timing which you can always check on Zomato!
