Flavours of Thailand in Mumbai:Thai Food Fest at JW Marriot Sahar


Thai food

Food is an important part of our culture. It plays a big role in our day to day life as well as in festivals. Food is not just eating, but it is also a way of socializing with your friends, family. I am big time foodie and I like experimenting new dishes and flavours.

Selected bloggers were invited to Thai food festival  by Blogadda at JW Marriot Sahar, luckily I was one of them. I received a gentle and warm welcome and was escorted to the JW Café. The Café was full packed as  it was Sunday thou we had a reserved table specially for bloggers 🙂

Chef Rungtiwa Sorlae, had  came  all the way from Thailand, to tantalize the  tastebuds by creating Authentic Thai recipes. Thai cuisine has made its mark all over the world, with its Aroma, Spices and amazing Chilies, it has become one of the popular cuisines for food lovers all over the world. Like any other cuisine Thai food also has many  base dishes which are hard to find in their authentic avatar

JW Marriott Sahar’s JW Café  is a modern art deco. It is exceptionally rich and tranquil spot to dine.I was  amazed by Thai Decor which included bamboo, umbrellas and staff dressed in thai costumes. The fragrance of food, the freshness of fruits and chilli spread all across.

Then I was captivated to the making of  Som Tam (salad), It’s a blend of crisp fixings which included crude papaya, lime squeeze, and bunches of red chilies in wooden mortar and gave it a decent beating, now topping it with cherry tomatoes and nuts and Voila Som Tam is prepared. It was new and extremely invigorating. I exceptionally enjoyed the sweet and bean stew flavors making a stunning combo for Salad
