Kanom Jak ขนมจาก

One of my first memories of Thai deserts was a visit to the small stall selling Kanom Jak on Rawai beach. Kanom Jak is a sweet made from grated coconut and palm sugar, wrapped in the 'jak' leaves and baked on a small charcoal grill. 'Bai Jak' is the leaf of the Nypa palm and is used for roofing, cigarette paper as well as a wrapping for food.
