Thai food is internationally famous both for its taste and aesthetics. Whether hot chili spiced or bland, harmony between ingredients and tastes is the guiding principle behind each Thai food dish. Thai cuisine is a rich fusion of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences harmoniously combined into something uniquely and deliciously Thai.
While Thai food has a reputation for being spicy, Thai food is actually based on a balance between different flavors including spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.
One distinctive aspect of Thai food is the use of fresh herbs and spices as well as the inclusion of fermented fish sauce in nearly every dish –a potential problem for vegetarians, though saying “jay” to indicate you are vegetarian goes a long way.
A highlight for many people on a Thailand holiday is experiencing Thai food culture. Traditional rituals, great hospitality and fresh, vibrant flavours ensure Thailand is a food lover’s delight, with exciting offerings on every corner- from busy street stalls to more luxurious restaurants.
Street food is a quintessential part of the Bangkok experience. Wherever you go in the city, food stalls are plentiful and you will find a high concentration of them in busy areas.
I was really amazed to see the same being replicated at the celebrated restaurant Kylin at Holiday Inn Mayur Vihar Noida. The ambience has been created in such a way that it feels as if one is on the streets of Bangkok. Stalls churning out freshly made soups, salads from a boat which replicated the floating market and the charcoal grill with smoke churning out awesome satay, dimsums and much more.
Guest Chef Lepcha has done so ders with his food. He has not used any packet curries instead he has made all the pastes and curries fresh with his own freshly sourced ingredients. This has made a remarkable difference to his creations and I must admit I had the best red curry of my life. Don’t miss the Starters at all, you will love the double cooked chicken which is grilled and then wrapped in a leaf and fried. Wow, thorough burst of lovely flavours just makes you to want more and more of this stuff.
The F & B team under the superb guidance of Mr. Suprabhat Roy Chaudhry has just nailed it with this festival. Kudos to the Team for their sheer talent and hospitality.
