Food is an important part of our culture. It plays a big role in our day to day life as well as in festivals. Food is not just eating, but it is also a way of socializing with your friends, family. I am big time foodie and I like experimenting new dishes and flavours.
Selected bloggers were invited to Thai food festival by Blogadda at JW Marriot Sahar, luckily I was one of them. I received a gentle and warm welcome and was escorted to the JW Café. The Café was full packed as it was Sunday thou we had a reserved table specially for bloggers :-)
Chef Rungtiwa Sorlae, had came all the way from Thailand, to tantalize the tastebuds by creating Authentic Thai recipes. Thai cuisine has made its mark all over the world, with its Aroma, Spices and amazing Chilies, it has become one of the popular cuisines for food lovers all over the world. Like any other cuisine Thai food also has many base dishes which are hard to find in their authentic avatar
JW Marriott Sahar’s JW Café is a modern art deco. It is exceptionally rich and tranquil spot to dine.I was amazed by Thai Decor which included bamboo, umbrellas and staff dressed in thai costumes. The fragrance of food, the freshness of fruits and chilli spread all across.
We started our Thai Food Journey by having a variety of freshly cut fruits such as Mangosteen, Rambutan, Dragon fruit, Pomelo, Lychee longan
Then I was captivated to the making of Som Tam (salad), It’s a blend of crisp fixings which included crude papaya, lime squeeze, and bunches of red chilies in wooden mortar and gave it a decent beating, now topping it with cherry tomatoes and nuts and Voila Som Tam is prepared. It was new and extremely invigorating. I exceptionally enjoyed the sweet and bean stew flavors making a stunning combo for Salad
Try not to miss the Khao Soi. Its one-dish feast includes noodles and coconut milk presented with a variety of garnishes that gives burst of stunning flavors
Lastly, I tried Thai Pancakes made from rice flour and topped with coconut cream. There are many variations to this crispy pancake.I am still drooling over it.
For the Main Course (vegetarians) – Stir Fry vegetables, Thai curry with Jasmine rice and Thai fried rice were good options to try.
JW Sahar brings Thai street food to Mumbai with an array of authentic and sumptuous Thai cuisine.I liked the delicious Khao Soi, crispy thai pancakes, Spicy Thai fried rice.
So friends tantalize your taste buds with Thai extravaganza which is exotic and distinct with a perfect balance of strong aroma and varied flavours.
