The widespread of Japanese and Korean desserts in Thailand resulting in many cafes/ restaurants in the country churning out good Kakigori/Bingsu and Me Melon is one of them in Southern Thailand.

Tropical Mango Kakigori (Rm 32)
Mini Belgian Waffles (Rm 22)
The Tropical Mango Kakigori has got to the most ordered dessert in Me Melon... literally every table ordered that during our visit. Though we were quite keen on the Durian flavored Bingsu but we kinda went with the flow. Each serving of the Mango Kakigori comes with fresh Mango and a small portion of Glutinous Rice. The accompanying sauce was Coconut Cream and Mango Jam, the overall combination was lovely and the texture was great. We love every bit of it but the ice melted too fast and without us noticing, it turned into water in a jiffy. Likewise, the Chocolate Ice Cream that came together with the Belgian Waffles melted too soon either. The Waffles on the other hand, were decent... airy and crisp, lightly dusted with Sugar... good on its own but better with the Cream and Ice Cream. But honestly speaking, the Kakigori was more superior than the Waffles, if you have limited tummy space, skip the Waffles.
