Ari is known as a neighbourhood with lots of IG-worthy cafes, and it’s time to add another member to the list: Tropi Hoola. This Hawaiian-themed cafe hails from Chiang Mai, and now calls Soi Ari 4 home in Bangkok. 

It’s 2019 and there’s no need to hop on a flight to enjoy an island vacation. With it’s chill outdoor and indoor atmosphere, Tropi Hoola will make you feel like you’re already at the beach thanks to its cute hut design and tropical-inspired desserts.

What to try at Tropi Hoola

Island getaways mean sand and sun, so no better way to cool it down than with some refreshing dessert and drinks. A signature drink is the Hokkaido Milk Creme Brulee Slurpee Fresh Fruit (฿99), a milk slushie with chunks of fruits and fruity sauce. You can choose between strawberry, mango, and peach.

If you’re not into fruity flavours, go for the normal Hokkaido Milk Slurpee (฿69) instead.

Dessert lovers should definitely try the homemade Donut Strawberry Cheese Brulee (฿69). This cute donut is stuffed with strawberries and creme, and topped with creamy torched cheese brulee.

Another must-try is the Crepe Brulee Cheesecake (฿99). This interesting dessert is a combination of Japanese cheesecake and crepe, and is filled with fresh fruits, butter crumble, and cheesecake filling. We bet you’ve never eaten cheesecake like this before.
