Best Desert in Las Vegas
Although the Yellow Mango is available in Southeast Asia Year round due to its warm tropical climate ( the average temperature in Bangkok Thailand is 85°F ) here in North America, Good Yellow Mangos are only available from the middle of March through August, a short 5 months span for the Ataulfo fruit, (Yellow Mangos technical name) which is actually grown in Mexico, where the majority of the crop is sourced into the United States.
King of Fruits is another name that has stuck with the Yellow Mango throughout the years, due to the rich concentration of Vitamin C’s, and Fiber, its tender interior, and buttery exterior make the Ataulfo fruit the most sought-after type of Mango in the world. That is why the Chefs here will only pair their famous Sticky Rice with only this type of Mango.
Mango Sticky Rice Desert or (Khao Nieel Ma Muaong –ไอศรีมรสมะม่วง ) as it is pronounced in Thai, has been enjoyed by Siamese people for over a 1,000 years. The original Ataulfo fruit, Yellow Mango, originated on the Indian Continent over 4,000 years ago, since then Indian traders and explorers traveling throughout Southeast Asia, began proliferating the seeds by trading them to other cultures including Siam ( present day Thailand ) where the Thai people married the fruit with sticky rice and coconut milk, creating a perfect nutritious Desert to wash down and help in the digestion of a rich spicy Thai meal which usually consists of herbs, garlic, and various curries.
Today, more and more Las Vegans are enjoying this Thai Dessert to complement their spicy dinner meal more than ever, since Kung Fu introduced this dessert to our beloved patrons, over 5 years ago, more versed Thai cuisine diners are asking for Yellow Mango Sticky Rice every day, especially when they are not in season.

Coconut milk helps lose weight by their high concentration of MCT. By containing high amounts of MCTs, coconut milk when ingested, gives a person a feeling of being full and satisfied, which could prevent overeating. And since MCT is considered good fat, beneficial to the body, this would, in turn, cause the body to avoid foods that contain bad fats by virtue of feeling full naturally.
Coconut milk Improves Digestion and assists in the prevention or treating of constipation, by lining the digestive tract with healthy fats and electrolytes, thereby improving gut health.
