Don’t panic if your favorite places are closed because of the coronavirus outbreak. Thanks to these online-only bakeries, you can have your chocolate lava cake and eat it, too, right in the comfort of your own home.

You can almost smell the durian rising out of this feed. Ivan Factory finds the best selection of monthong, the golden pillow durian, to bake into creamy and buttery cheesecakes (B150 cup/B490 box/B890 one pound/B1,600 two pounds). In the middle, you’ll find big chunks of durian before hitting the crunchy crumble on the bottom. Note: they also offer half-sugar cheesecakes.

It doesn’t get much more authentic than this. Choose from Thai snacks, including khanom tien (sweet, stuffed dough pyramids), khanom puifai (steamed cupcakes), khanom tuay foo (steamed muffins) and more. The signature dish, however, shatters any notion of authenticity: mango sticky rice crepe rolls (B185 10 pieces/B500 30 pieces/B1,000 62 pieces).
