Mont: toast with condensed milkOne of the best places to grab a nighttime snack is a little place called Mont in the old part of town. The place is always overflowing with Patrons, so getting a table can be challenging.

So what’s the big attraction? Simple: bread and milk.

Bread toasted with butter and sugar, bread toasted and topped with sweetened, condensed milk, toast topped with chocolate, toast topped with jams, bread cubes with a sweet bai thoey custard for dipping and more.

Bai Thoey Custard and bread cubes at Mont RestaurantThe toast with butter and sugar is great, and takes me back to my childhood in The Netherlands where I was shocked to find this was my breakfast at the Kinter House. I ended up liking it though, and I still do.

The toasted bread with sweetened condensed milk is my favorite though. I can’t get enough. But the best seller is surely the bread cubes with bai thoey custard for dipping the bread into, shown here on the right. And their claim to fame is not only fresh bread but milk, so their Thai iced tea is popular too.

This place is always full because it’s in a great location. Conveniently located just off Ratchadamnoen Road, there are always people walking around. There are two other locations according to their website, but I only go to this one. In fact I’ve never heard mention of other locations, I only know this because it’s on their website.

Full crowd scene at MontThe decor is simple, and features photos of some of the many famous customers who’ve eaten here over the years. So many have come here since it opened in 1964. And from the looks of it, they will remain popular for many years to come.
