Event: Thai Kingdom Come! (Manila)

For the second time around, Marriott Hotel Manila’s modern Marriott Café, with its open-theater kitchens, will bring back the exhilarating Thai Kingdom Come food festival and dinner party the whole month of July. 

Chef Neng and Chef Man
Co-sponsored by Thai Airways and The Royal Thai Embassy, this month-long dining experience will satisfy a foodie’s gastronomic craving for authentic Thai dishes. 
The award-winning Thai dishes served during the launch, palate-tickling sensations filled with exquisite flavors, were again whipped up, in his second much-awaited comeback, by no less than JW Marriott’s Sou Chef Thanatorn Krobsuay, a certified Thai cuisine expert who will head the kitchen team. Doubling up the feast was 27 year old  Sutthipong Sirikanchittawon, one of the certified Thai food ambassadors of JW Marriott Bangkok’s Marriott Café.

The food that evening at The Lounge, an explosion of five distinct blends of basic tastes (sweet, sour, salty, spicy, and sometimes bitter), evoked the sentimental feel of Thailand’s gastronomic treasures. The time-honored curry dishes, at the pot station, featured massaman curry with braised chicken (deemed to be one of the earliest Thai recipes), its special curry paste made with coconut milk, bay leaves, cinnamon, palm sugar, fish sauce and tamarind. The green curry with chicken and sweet basil, another popular version, is known for its flavorful sauce made with green pepper simmered with eggplant and thinly sliced chicken pieces.

The spread also featured other Thai’s classic favorites such as pad thai, deep-fried spring rolls, stir-fried prawns in sweet and sour vegetables, and tom yam goong

Dessert featured the exotic foytong — sweet strands of sugar and egg yolk flavored with rose water.

For only PhP1,750 net, diners can try out a unique twist on Thai flavors for dinner for the whole month of July. Start with the light, healthy and most refreshing Thai salad sensations, specially the the popular Thai papaya salad. Then, you take your pick from grilled shrimps, beef, or chicken as toppings commingled with the tangy sweet lime, all certified tasty but not heavy for the tummy.  

For more elaborate food choices that are surely worth trying, swing by to the sections also serving equally inviting Western and Asian selections, from appetizer to dessert, that stretched the five-star experience at the Marriott Café. All diners will be given a chance revisit the historic Thailand, the Land of Smiles, for free as Marriott Manila will raffle off three days and two nights’ stay in one of the Marriott properties in Bangkok.   On July 12 and 19, for only PhP1, 000 net, chef Thanatorn will offer lessons on basic preparation of exquisite, 3-course Thai food.
