A little Thai lass extended a tray with soe unusual pieces of pastry on it and i sampled them. Having the sweet tooth of a child I wanted more, and that is how I discovered Kurtosh, the cafe and the cakes it is named after.
I ordered a Cappuccino to complement my choice and was astounded by the quality - and to learn the coffee was local. I have a lifelong association with Italy, the home of great coffee and this was right up there.
The genial owner, Meir, bakes 12 kinds of Chimney Cakes (Kurtosh), both sweet and savoury, fresh throughout the day according to demand. He does this before your eyes and it's really entertaining to watch these quaint pastries take shape until they emerge from a dainty little oven. The intriguing name is instantly clear the moment they are slipped from the unusual roller to stand hollow and "smoking" and crying out to be eaten.
I've been back a further six times already, the best possible expression of satisfaction. I'm not sure you'll find this experience anywhere else in Thailand so you may want to give it a try. I don't believe you'll be disappointed.
