Thai Food Festival, Sheraton [Review]

Ever wonder what makes Thai cuisine so special?  Thai food ain’t about simplicity. It’s about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish. It’s the meticulous and measured play of herbs and spices that makes it truly exquisite. From lemongrass, Thai holy basil, shrimp paste,  lime,  coconut milk, fish sauce and a host of local condiments that cook up a traditional Thai delicacy.

I got the chance to enjoy authentic Thai food in New Delhi at WelcomHotel Sheraton when i attended their Thai Food Festival. The Menu was an interesting mix of salads, starters, main course and dessert.  I started with salads that were light in texture, tangy and spicy in flavor. One of which was thai pomelo salad  that is made with crispy onions , peanut and their signature that chili sauce (fresh red chili, garlic, onion, seasoning , sugar ,palm jaggery). The other one was Mango salad made with shrimps, mango, cilantro and tangy spicy dressing.

Starters were a delight. I got to taste mouth watering Mango sushi,  lemon chicken (a simple preparation that was crispy from outside and extremely smooth-soft from inside) , Tofu & Peanut Butter Corn Cakes  that were another vegetarian’s delight served with a twist with kafir lime salsa and peanut butter sauce on corn cakes.

Main course was the best part –  Must have are the  pineapple fried rice and Spinach curry.  Pineapple fried rice is a special fried rice made with nuts, pineapple pieces and curry powder which gives a nice aroma &  spinach curry is made with thai yellow curry with a twist of water chestnut added to give a crunch.  It’s chefs choice for vegetarians. 🙂

We finished the meal with  mango and coconut sticky dessert. Loved it. Highly recommended. 🙂

Time to meet the Thai master chefs 🙂
