If you have been craving a vacay to Thailand lately, it’s time to head straight to Zen at The Park and dig into some yummy dishes from the country. The Oriental speciality restaurant is hosting a Chiang Mai food festival, which offers delicacies from the northern mountainous part of Thailand.
The menu, curated by executive chef Ananchai Suttison, sous chef Tawee Chaichana and chef de partie Jinnipha Ketkaew, is loaded with pork, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes. Northern Thailand cuisine is influenced by Myanmar and China, so ginger and turmeric are commonly found in most of the dishes.
“Since Chiang Mai is in the northern part, the weather is cold and people there eat more pork, red meat and the usage of dry meat is common. Hence the menu has many pork dishes. You also get very good fresh water fish in those regions,” said chef Sharad Dewan, regional director, food production, The Park Hotels.
