Fresh fragrant and flamboyant, Thai food has always been a top favourite world cuisine. Those who love all things spicy would enjoy Thai food but some of the staples of Thai cuisine like Pad Thai (rice noodles cooked with a tamarind and fish sauce) and Tod Mun (fish cakes) would easily satisfy every appetite.
In April, Resorts World Genting will be featuring a wide range of Thai dishes. A Thai-themed buffet will be held in Coffee Terrace at Genting Grand to celebrate the Songkran Festival from 7 to 16 April. Marking the traditional Thai New Year, the Songkran Festival is a time where people have fun and engage in friendly water fights and street parties all week long. Water is an important element during the celebration due to its important role in the agricultural culture of the country.
Rest assured, no water fights will take place at Coffee Terrace, only an abundance of delicious Thai food. There’s something for everyone at the Songkran buffet spread, with two menus featured on a rotation basis.
Menu One offers appetisers like Thai Fish Cake, Rice Cracker with Chicken Basil, Thai Royal Salad, Thai Pandan Chicken, and Thai Chicken Satay. Vegetable lovers can look forward to salad dishes such as their Green Papaya Salad with Dried Shrimp, Seafood Salad with Glass Noodles, Thai Chicken Salad, Boneless Chicken Feet Salad, and the popular Thai Mango Salad along with their vegetable dishes including Mixed Mushroom with Tauchu Thai Style and Fried Baby Kailan with Salted Fish & Fresh Chilli.
Tom Yum soup is a must with two choices – Red Tom Yum Prawn Soup and Clear Tom Yum Seafood Soup. Equally appealing main dishes such as d Chicken Curry with Eggplant, Fried Prawn with Glass Noodles, Fried Crab with Yellow Royal Curry, Steamed Fish with Lemongrass & Lime, Beef Mutsamun Curry, Stir-fried Lamb Slice with Garlic & Pepper, Pineapple Fried Rice, Thai Laksa with Condiments, and Phad Thai Talay are also offered.
Cool and sweet dishes are also offered to wash down all that spiciness. Diners can choose from Mango & Sticky Rice, Water Chestnuts in Coconut Milk, Thai Tapioca Pudding, Thai Style Cendol, and fruits, among others. For drinks, diners can enjoy the refreshing Lemongrass Tea and Coconut Juice.
The second menu, on the other hand, promises value for money and lots of variety. While the appetisers, salads, soups and desserts are the same as the first menu, the main dishes are entirely different: Green Chicken Curry, Thai Fried Curry Crab, Roasted Duck Curry, Fried Thai Basil Prawn, Panang Lamb, Hot & Sour Fish, Thai Otak Otak Seafood, Shrimp Paste Fried Rice, Thai Herbs Noodle Soup, and Phad Thai Talay. Vegetable dishes include Fried Brinjal with Thai Fermented Beans & Prawn Meat and Fried Kailan with Salted Fish & Fresh Chilli.
