THAI Catering staff said they found it difficult to keep up with the demand in Chiang Mai as customers had begun lining up early in the morning to try the popular snack from the culinary arm of Thai Airways.
The entire operation was moved from Bangkok to Chiang Mai to offer the fried donuts, with cooking pans and staff all brought up from the capital to Suthep Road across from the province’s Public Health Office. Selling from 6am, staff had three pans going with batches of donuts frying for five minutes a time. Waiting times were still no less than 20 minutes due to demand as many people bought 3-5 bags or even 10 bags to give out to their friends and family.
Selling for 40 baht a bag, three pairs of donuts along with a condensed milk sauce are provided in each order. The operation has reported selling as many as 1,000 orders a day, and staff have urged buyers to arrive even earlier in the day, to avoid a long wait. (NNT)
