Miss your favourite spicy Tom Yum Goong or the delicious green curry chicken in Bangkok? Good news is that you don’t have to book a ticket to fly to Thailand for that. This coming September, Olive Tree at InterContinent Singapore is bringing the very best of Thai cuisine to Singapore.
From 27 September to 13 October 2013, you can look forward to a sensory Thai experience as two renowned guest chefs from the Thailand Culinary Academy – Chef Surasak Kongsawat and Chef Jareuk Sriaroon, together with a locally acclaimed Thai culinary expert Chef Hansongkhram Chutnapa, will cook and serve up a selection of traditional and innovative Thai specialities at the special “Journey into Thailand” buffet.
Using the finest herbs and spices along with the freshest ingredients, the dinner buffet will offer a mosaic of authentic Thai dishes from traditional salads, velvety curries, fiery main courses to sweet dessert temptations. Start your meal with the Kao Tang Na Tang (crispy rice crackers served with savoury chicken dip), Tom Yum Goong (spicy prawn soup infused with galangal and lemongrass) and the Yam Wun Sen Gai Sub (glass noodle salad with minced chicken).
If you are looking for a spicy adventure, the Hor Mok Taley (steamed red curry seafood mousse), flavoursome Geang Kiew Waan Gai (Chicken Green Curry with Thai Eggplant) and rich Geang Phed Ped Yang (Spicy Duck Red Curry with Fruit) will hit all the right spots of your taste buds.
There are also classic Thai favourites like Kor Moo Yang (succulent char-grilled pork shoulder with a secret blend of spices) and Pad Thai (Thai-style stir-fried noodles with Tamarind Sauce), prepared a la minute and the refreshingly spicy and sour Som Tam (signature spicy green papaya salad) for you to indulge.
The colourful Lup Chup (fruit-shaped desserts made of mung-bean flour with natural colouring) will take centre-stage at the dessert counter, together with an array of tempting desserts including Khao Niaow Ma Muang (Sweet Sticky Rice with mango), Tub Tim Krob (Red ruby in syrup and coconut milk) as well as Thai Tako (Thai pudding with coconut topping).
In addition to the Thai specialities, a smorgasbord of fresh seafood, salad and antipasti, assorted sushi and sashimi and premium cheeses available will ensure a dining experience that is truly unique and absolutely delicious. Besides yummy authentic Thai food, there is also traditional Thai classical dance performances on specially selected nights to entertain you.
