Mo & Moshi is a seriously cool ice cream shop within the Siam Center mall. There are various flavours of the homemade ice creams and frozen yoghurts to choose between, including lemon sorbet, rum raisin, cotton candy, and green tea, as well as the classics of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Gorgeously presented and accompanied by waffles, cones, sprinkles, fruit, cream, cookies, and more, they’re not just pretty to look at; some are huge! The Strawberry Supreme, for example, contains a whopping 22 scoops of ice cream! It’s definitely one to share, and you may want to skip dinner. If you’re not down for a mammoth dessert, how about an Ice Cream Burger or Toast Tower instead?

Pretty pinks, pastel shades, and an abundance of unicorns make this one whimsical and Insta-worthy Bangkok establishment
. There are even unicorns hanging from the ceiling as though they’re in mid-flight. The Unicorn Cafe serves an assortment of attractive and brightly coloured fare, with snacks and desserts being popular options. There’s honey toast topped with ice cream and, naturally, an upturned ice cream cone that looks like a unicorn horn. There’s rainbow-coloured waffles with multi-coloured candy floss and ice cream — again with a cone horn. Even the hot chocolate, with lashings of whipped cream and colourful marshmallows, is finished with a small edible horn. It’s a place that makes you appreciate fairy tales and mythical creatures.
