Feast you taste buds on Marriott Hotel Manila's Flavors of Thailand

Thailand is known as one of Asia's shopping mecca and tourist's haven. I will never forget my trip to Thailand with my friends. And the food, it's a bit spicy, but whoa, they're really good.

If you're craving for a pad thai or any Thai food, you don't have to book a ticket to Thailand because Marriott Hotel Manila brings to you the rich and unique flavors of Thailand as Marriott Hotel Manila brings the best of Thai in partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Embassy of Thailand and Thai Airways. From August 1 to 31, satisfy your taste buds with a delicious showcase of authentic Thai dishes by Thai chef Thanathorn Krobsuay flown all the way from one of the most contemporary Marriott properties in Asia, the JW Marriott Bangkok. A Thai local himself, chef Krobsuay shares his sophisticated style and expertise in Thai cooking which never fails to mesmerize guests and capture the palates of discerning gourmands.

Start the adventure with a savory piping hot tom yam goong soup (spicy prawn soup with lemongrass and galangal) that will surely perk up the senses with its sweet and spicy broth. Follow it with Som tum(spicy green papaya salad) a palate stimulating spicy salad starter made of shredded papaya, beans, and dried shrimp. Some of the classic main dishes include Thod mun pla (thai fish cakes with pickled cucumber) which is a marinated fried fish cake with green beans and herbs swathed in sweet and sour sauce, which remains a favorite tasty treat of Thais. Featuring as well is the larb gai(minced chicken salad with mint and ground rice) enhanced with the natural flavors of lime juice and fish sauce. Another favorite is Pad Thai (stir fried noodle with seafood) considered a national dish consists of fried noodles, eggs, been sprouts, shrimp, chicken, and tofu combined with oriental ingredients such as tamarind juice, hot chili, and fish sauce producing a nutty, pungent taste. To end a hot Thai feast, complete the meal with a refreshing kanom thai ruam (selections of Thai royal desserts) that has an amusing sweet and salty balance of tastes. Usually made of coconut milk based or sweet sticky rice, all desserts feature most piquant Asian ingredients and recipes.
