10. Fried Bananas and Coconut Ice Cream from Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery

This dish might sound simple, but it's really something special. The bananas are fried into crispy little delicious spheres, which creates a nice presentation and also makes them easier to share. Really, though, everyone at the table will be fighting over the house-made coconut ice cream in the middle. This frozen treat is dreamy, creamy, and very coconutty. Coconut can be a mild flavor that's more of a sidekick than a star, but with Soi 4's ice cream, coconut takes the main stage.
