This year's Chinese Spirit Festival is on August 30, 2023. It is a significant festival for Chinese families. And the must-have dessert is Kanom Kheng, a sticky rice dessert made from glutinous rice that is used to honor the lives of Chinese immigrants to Thailand. Khanom Kheng also has an auspicious meaning. That also implies sweetness, smoothness, and abundance in life.
In Phuket, Khanom Kheng is brown because, in ancient times, they steamed them with a wood stove overnight until they turned brown, and today, although the charcoal stove is no longer used, the brown is maintained by using palm sugar or dark brown instead.
Local Ranong food “Yao Ye”, a traditional Chinese Hokkien dish.

Comes with two kinds of dipping sauces: syrup and a sauce that tastes sour, spicy, and salty. It can be a snack or a starter that Ranong has had for a long time.
