Hwan means ‘sweet’ in Thai.
But whilst some Thai desserts might tend toward the decorative, the sticky, and the cloyingly sweet, Hwan, is more of a no frills kind of dessert joint, and the desserts thankfully are not overly sweet.

Hwan, the kiosk is located just outside McDonalds, LG Midvalley
Savory finger food such as the Mieng Kam, Mango or Papaya salads, Pandan Chicken & Fish cakes give a good balance to the dessert menu, so that not everything you see on the list is sweet.
I like the salads here – freshly made, and they don’t need to be heated

The owner Caleen, tells us that the concept was created when she visited Chef McDang in Bangkok. He brought her to taste some amazing Thai food, dishes and desserts that were like nothing she had tasted before. She loved it so much that it inspired her to create Hwan, this Thai dessert concept that’s located at LG of Midvalley.
Non-Thai inspired desserts – loved the durian ice cream one on top of sticky rice

Unfortunately, these fish cakes were just so-so for me, but obviously they need to be microwaved to be made warm, seeing as the nature of this place is a kiosk, so it lacked that made on the spot freshness that we have been accustomed too. Still for what it is, and everything being under RM10, it is a real steal!
