Amazing Taste of Thailand

“A Taste of Thai” is on center stage at The Café, the interactive show-kitchen restaurant of Hyatt Regency Manila, City of Dreams from September 9 to 22, 2019.

There are two (2) exciting things happening until September 22 and one (1) very special class: 

One, the Thai culinary promotion, which is staged with Thai Airways and the Tourism Authority of Thailand, presents Thai guest chef Siriluck Lekkwan, Grand Hyatt Macau’s Thai Chef de Cuisine. 

Two (2), diners availing of the promotion will get a chance to win two Thai Airways round trip tickets to Bangkok, with a three-day and two-night stay in a Club King room at the Grand Hyatt Erawan replete with continental breakfast, evening cocktails and canapés at the Grand Club Lounge.

And three (3), for Thai aficionados, Chef Lekkwan will conduct a cooking class on September 13 at 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at The Café.

Chef Lekkwan is a renowned chef of Thai cuisine with over two decades of experience in professional hotel kitchens under her belt, and who also had the honor of preparing meals for the Thai royal family. The well-respected chef is also affectionately called as “Chef Mum” for her generous warmth and care of all those around her — which is also reflected on her personal attention to each diner, catering to individual preferences.

Her cooking is rooted in the traditional fare of her hometown, Bangkok, where she first learned from her earliest culinary mentor, her grandmother, a local chef who cooked in the royal kitchens of King Rama V. Over the years, Chef Mum’s dishes are described as “refined yet comforting; exquisite yet homey.”

Green Curry Chicken

Reflective of the rich culinary traditions of Thailand which balances salty, sweet, sour and spicy flavors, Chef Mum prepares her specialty dishes, among them a myriad of classic Thai fare such as Green Papaya Salad; Thai Royal Dumplings; Deep-fried Sea Bass with Chili and Tamarind Sauce; Green Curry Chicken; Prawn Cake with Sweet and Sour Sauce; and Mango Sticky Rice.
