I couldn’t wait more so let’s start with mocktails; I asked the hotel manager to suggest the best of the cocktails here so there it is:
Passion fruit sprinkler
Citrusy passion juice served with ice cubes makes a great accompaniment to spicy meals. With just the right amount of juice, water and flavourings, this should be the go-to drink for anyone looking to be refreshed on a hot day.
Raspberry ice tea
This colourful drink is infused with flavours of raspberry for a fruity drink that refreshes instantly. Ice cubes and lime slices add both flavour and aesthetic value.
We started off with Appetizers, Salads, Soups and Entrees
Som Tum Mamuang Salad
A delicious sweet and sour salad from Thailand featuring unripe mangoes and papaya dressed in a shallot, chilli and garlic sauce. I liked the raw papaya and it blends well with the raw mangoes that give a distinct taste.
