Seasonal Taste – The Great Thai Feast [MEDIA INVITE]

The Great Thai Feast @ Seasonal Taste

From 18 to 31 July 2016, Seasonal Taste is bringing you The Great Thai Feast. With Seasonal Tastes’ resident Sous Chef Sedtapat Sukpaisanpongsa, alongside Chef Kamonwan Juntarasert and Chef Sittha Sa-Nguansat, proudly presenting a selection of authentic Thai culinary treasures, from its omnipresent street food to perennial favourites originating from Isaan, the Northeast region of Thailand.

Little Devil and Chubby Botak Koala tried the sumptuous Thai dishes and recommended this top 5 must try dishes in The Great Thai Feast at Seasonal Taste:

Beef Noodles (Kuay Teow Nuaa). This is one of our favourite street food when we are in Bangkok. Though the version here is more sterile compare to the version in Thailand, it delivers on the taste. The consommé beef broth is beefy and robust, while the beef brisket, tripe, tendon was springy yet succulent like it has been cooked over long period. The beef liver and sliced meat is done to medium rare, while the bouncy beef ball add to the texture in the noodle soup. Yum Yum!!

Grilled Pork Neck (Kor Moo Yang). Porkgasm!! This lovely pork neck is has a good balance between meat and fats. Well seasoned, well grilled, it was juicy and succulent. You can have it with the tangy chilli dip (Jim Jaew) or a dash of grilled lemon. We basically have 2 plates of this oink oink.

The dips. Little Devil was enjoying herself here with the Isaan speciality. The fermented shrimp paste (Nam Prik Kapi) and Fermented Chilli Shrimp Paste (Nam Prik Pao). These pungent fermented shrimp paste really opens up her appetite for the rest of the dishes here. Followed this with Papaya Salad (Som Tam) paired with salted egg it will give you a deeper appreciation in Northeast region of Thailand

Crispy Pork Rind (Kaeb Moo) & Green Curry. This freshly fried pork skin is definitely a winner. It was lightly seasoned, hollow and crispy, it provide a good companion for the curry and tom yum. I normally get a big pack when I am in Golden Mile to go with my curry, but here it was free flow. The green curry is thick and rich of spices and coconut milk. Although it was served with noodle, I suggest you just have it with the meat + pork rind +rice, as the noodle easily become bloated.

The Pumpkin Custard (Sang Kaya Faktong). While others might go straight for the ever popular mango with sticky rice, we believe this pumpkin custard is a must try dish here. The pumpkin cooked till soft and paired with creamy egg custard, it is not too sweet with a hint of salt from the custard. It is a well balance dish to end the meal.
