THAILAND has always been one of my dream destinations as their cuisine is said to be among the worlds best.
If there is anything that Thailand knows best, it is definitely their street food. This has been proven over the years with their reputation as an internationally known destination for street food and their annual Songkran Festival.
Mango Tree launched Thai Street Food Festival last April 19 together with Chef Tum.
The first Thai food that was served was the appetizer Mango Salad, it is salty sweet and spicy, good enough to start up a meal, it has become my instant favorite at the moment.
Their Pork Dynamite is crunchy, spicy and tasty, best to pair with Singha beer.
|Salmon Skin Chicharon|
Salmon Chicharon is salmon skin with lemon grass and garlic aioli, it is crunchy and a bit salty, best to partner with their personal dip.
And to celebrate this authenticity, Mango Tree and Mango Tree Bistro are holding a Thai Street Food Festival from April 20 until May 15 to offer diners a symphony of visual delight and an explosion of unique, gastronomic flavors and spices.
Chef Prapun Sampungpong or Chef Tum for short, the new executive chef on board, has meticulously designed an interesting line-up of dishes and street food favorites from across Thailand. These will include items such as Tom Yum Chicken Poppers, Salmon Skin Crisps (Chicharon), Tom Yum Fries and Pork Dynamite, among others. The festival selection promises to be a culinary experience worth coming back for, to be enjoyed by many. Other items to look forward to include the Pla Meuk Thod or Fried Squid Rings; the Goong Phad Wonsen or Stir-fried Glass Noodles with Shrimps; and the Larb Pla Meuk or Spicy Squid Salad. And definitely not to be missed is the Thai style halo-halo!
