When it comes to dessert, the Thai prowess is equal that of our Nyonyas. We discover Khanom Ba Bin (RM15) - baked tapioca cake has riffs of bingka ubi. According to the resto's Director of Operations May Lim, the rice flour, palm sugar and grated coconut mixture renders a toasty crust to the tapioca cake while the inner part remains subtly chewy.
Those miniature treats of look choop return in a different guise at the end of our meal, transformed into delightful Look Choop Jelly (RM16 - 8 pcs) with each 'fruit' embedded into tiny cups of coconut jelly. A definitive dessert to ensure you leave Baan Kun Ya with sweet memories.
