Flavours of Thailand

No Image

The Kingdom of Thailand has a unique gastronomic culture and it is a major attraction behind its annual tourism statistics. What gives Thai foods a different identity is that the Thai platter is amazingly balanced with a mix of sweet, sour, bitter, and salty flavours which are finished with aromatic herbs.


Various iconic places including the capital Bangkok has a plethora of joints to reckon with and a visit to this country wouldn’t be complete without trying its unique delicacies which vary from foods influenced by many cultures including India, China and Portugal.


It is a rare tribute to the yearning food aficionados in Oman that how the Thais have incorporated these influences into their cuisine for centuries to create their own unique dishes at the Grand Millennium Muscat.


The Thai food fest will be an exciting opportunity to experience the rich flavours of this Southeast Asian country as Thai Master Chef Sirlak Suksamran and her team will visit Muscat to display their expertise in authentic Thai dishes, for the first time.


Bahriyat Restaurant is all Thai-fied to serve an ala carte menu of well-known Thai dishes during lunch and dinner while the chef deep inside you can take classes from Master Chef Sirlak where the specific ingredients and cooking techniques used in each meal will be taught while enjoying the delicious meal.


“The Thai food fest is an exciting opportunity for both Omanis and expatriates to come and try the unique festival that allows guests to sample authentic Thai food and to get the opportunity and learn how to prepare dishes during the cooking classes. We are excited to be hosting the Thai fest,” said Luca Medda, Cluster General Manager at Grand Millennium Muscat.


The festival, to be held from January 10 till 31, will feature delightful Thai cuisine with live street food cooking stations, cooking classes and Thai entertainment. A range of Thai foods ranging from Pad Thai (Stir-Fried Noodles), Tom Yum Goong (Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup), Kaeng Lueang (Yellow Curry), Gaeng Daeng (Red Curry), Gaeng Keow Wan Gai (Green Curry), Khao Soi (Thai Coconut Curry Noodle Soup), and Khao Pad (Thai Fried Rice) and many more are a sure bet to tickle one’s taste buds all these days.
