Mango Tree brings the best exotic flavors from the streets of Thailand
Promising to bring “Thai cuisine at its best,” Mango Tree goes beyond the norm for that authentic Thai gastronomic experience renowned the world over.
If there is anything that Thailand is best known for, it is definitely their street food. And with their reputation as a global destination for street food, particularly with their annual Songkran Festival or Thai New Year’s festival, Mango Tree and Mango Tree Bistro held a Thai Street Food Festival in Manila, which is ongoing until May 15.
Songkran literally means “astrological passage,” and with the symphony of visual delights and an explosion of unique, gastronomic flavors and spices, diners in the metro can expect an in-depth culinary passage leading to the authenticity of Thailand’s flavor.
“Thai street foods are very charming. It has its own charm of touching the culture and touching the people. And it’s a good chance to bring some culture and dishes here [in the Philippines] where people like it so much,” Mathuros Wongpradoo, operations director of Mango Tree shared with Expat.
“Mango Tree offers Thai cuisines or delicacies that’s something new or with a different presentation but we always make sure to maintain its authenticity,” Mathuros added.
Meanwhile, Chef Prapun Sampungpong (aka Chef Tum), the new executive chef on board, has meticulously designed an interesting line-up of dishes and street food favorites from across Thailand. These include items such as Tom Yum Chicken Poppers, Salmon Skin Crisps, Tom Yum Fries and Pork Dynamite. Other items to look forward to include the Pla Meuk Thod or Fried Squid Rings; the Goong Phad Wonsen or Stir-fried Glass Noodles with Shrimps; and the Larb Pla Meuk or Spicy Squid Salad. And definitely not to be missed is the Thai style halo-halo (perfect for the unforgiving summer heat).
Mango Tree is a global Thai food brand and this month-long event, which will take place in all Mango Tree and Mango Tree Bistro branches, is a testament to Thailand’s culture, authenticity and bursting flavors. The Thai Street Food Festival is in cooperation with Singha Beer and the Thai Trade Commission.
