CULINARY DELIGHTS:Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences’s Flavors Restaurant is holding its annual Thai food promotion
GOOD news for Thai food lovers. Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences's Flavors Restaurant is offering about 100 authentic Thai dishes in its "Thai Food Galore 2012" promotion.
The dishes are prepared by chef de cuisine Sunantha Artsalee, who is from Bangkok.
The promotion was recently launched by Songsak Saicheua, Minister and Deputy Chief of Mission of the Royal Thai Embassy
Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences manager Samuel Wong said the hotel was proud to host the Thai food promotion for the second consecutive year.
"Annually, we host a special presentation of Asian cuisine to showcase the uniqueness and variety of food to our guests.
"After the success of last year's event, we are delighted to share the culture of our neighbouring country once again.
"As everyone knows, one of the best ways to get to know a country's culture is by tasting its food," he said.
The culinary delights include tom yam, kangkung with minced chicken, mussel marinara, deep-fried pandan chicken, gai pat prik hualapa (spicy chicken with basil), pla dook (grilled cat fish), goong op voon sen (claypot glass noodles with prawns), pla kapong sam rod (sea bass in three flavours), beef masaman curry and gaeng keow wann gai (green curry chicken).
Sunantha, who has 20 years of experience in the culinary industry, said: "We are offering three types of tom yam -- tom yam kung (a spicy Thai soup with huge prawns), tom yam poktek (clear white broth served in a clay pot) and tom khai kai (spicy soup with coconut milk). The idea of having different kinds of tom yam is to give our diners more choices and flavours.
"For those with a liking for noodles, go for kuay teow neua or Thai beef noodles.
"As for dessert, diners will love water chestnuts with coconut milk as it is sweet, milky and creamy."
He said the desserts include khanom sangkaya (pumpkin custard), kow neow mamuang (sticky rice with mango), ai tim bann (Thai village ice cream) and lod chong (Thai cendol).
The buffet is available daily for lunch from noon to 2.30pm and dinner from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. The lunch buffet is priced at RM58++ per adult and RM29++ per child and senior citizen. The dinner buffet is priced at RM68++ per adult and RM34++ per child and senior citizen.
Diners can take part in the Dine and Win contest to win holiday vouchers worth more than RM5000 sponsored by Tower Club Lebua Bangkok and Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam. Also up to grabs are vouchers for a three-day, two-night stay at Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences Kuala Lumpur, Swiss-Garden Resort and Spa Kuantan and Swiss-Garden Golf Resort and Spa Damai Laut.
For reservations, call 03-2141 3333 ext 1190, visit www.swissgarden.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The promotion ends on Oct 10.
