Though the some of the pictures were posted in 2019, Bang Lee’s photos gain popularity after a Thai Facebook page นักวิ่ง งานดี shared it recently.

Combining the best of both worlds: Hot guys and great desserts. Here are some of Bang Lee’s works:

1. Onde-onde

Our favourite dessert just got a little sweeter.

Onde-onde, a traditional Southeast Asian dish that one can easily be found in Indonesia and Malaysia. They are made with pandan infused dough and with gula melaka fillings.

That’s one hot bowl of cendol.

A Malaysian favourite during a hot day. It is a sweet, iced dessert that contains green rice flour jellies, coconut milk and a sugar syrup known as gulu melaka.
