Melt Me is one of Bangkok's many dessert cafes - a concept I just can't get enough of. At this recently opened orange, white and glass cube of a cafe it's all about desserts made from creamy Hokkaido milk, which hails from the Japanese city Sapporo. It's used in Melt Me's chocolates, gelato and even one of its drinks (a ridiculously decadent hot chocolate - basically a huge slab of dark chocolate on a stick that you melt into a cup of hot milk). The staff urge you to try samples of the handmade chocolates (not that my arm needs twisting!), and intriguingly, the gelato and sorbet menu promises some not-yet-available flavours including....beer!
