On searing days like these, it’s a good thing that Bangkok is in no danger of running out of ice cream parlors like that of chef Bhupar “Poon” Choonharas. 

After winning Thailand’s first Sweet Chef competition in 2018, Poon trained in France under an ice cream master. Back in Bangkok, Poon compressed his knowledge into the dainty Montagne L’art de la glace just off Rama III Road. 

“Like any other confectionery, ice cream deserves its own stage and presentation. I believe there are plenty of ways we can all enjoy our ice cream,” Poon said

Find a mix of both traditional and unusual flavors (starting from THB80 to THB120): Fleur de Benjamas (white chrysanthemum, honey, and yogurt sorbet), Ananas Shiso (pineapple and shiso sorbet), and Carotte Orange Gingembre (carrot, orange, and ginger sorbet). 

Aside from bold flavors at the counter, Poon has a few special ice cream creations. Mille Feuille (THB160), for example, reimagines the classic French confectionery with each component arranged into a single scoop; inside are delicate, crispy caramel layers and a flaky filo pastry on top.

Poon’s artisan ice cream also accompanies his plated desserts, usually reserved for those who book beforehand. The Vacherin (THB330) features vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet topped with a meringue plate arranged with fresh raspberries and edible flowers. Many may love Choux à la Noisette (THB270), featuring hazelnut ice cream and creamy chocolate inside the crispy choux.

There’s no alcohol for now, but the mocktails are overseen by the talented Supawit “Palm” Muttarattana, formerly of Silom drinking spot Vesper. The Light Beaujolais (THB140) features a lightly roasted barley tea with a mixture of roselle, cranberry, raspberry syrup; Saint Tropez Time (THB160) sees a blend of clarified milk, coconut juice, passion fruit, and pineapples.
