Journey into Thailand at Olive Tree, Intercontinental Hotel
From 27 September to 13 October 2013, Intercontinental Hotel is having a “Journey into Thailand” food promotion at Olive Tree Restaurant. To deliver a truly authentic experience, the hotel has flown in two renowned guest chefs from the Thailand Culinary Academy – Chef Surasak Kongsawat and Chef Jareuk Sriaroon, together with a locally acclaimed Thai culinary expert Chef Chutnapa Hansongkhram, to bring you the very best of Thai cuisine.
Using the finest herbs and spices along with the freshest ingredients, their dinner buffet offers a mosaic of authentic Thai dishes from traditional salads, velvety curries, fiery main courses to sweet dessert temptations. We started with some fresh seafood on ice, sashimi, sushi and refreshing Thai appetizers such as fluffy catfish, green mango salad, spicy beef salad, seafood salad, prawn & pomelo salad.
Thai chicken noodle soup allows you to choose between thin kway teow or bee hoon.
They also have a Som Tam corner where the signature spicy green papaya salad is prepared a la minute. It is so refreshingly spicy and sour. You can choose how spicy you want it to be.
There is a chef who cooks Phad Thai for you. But the phad thai I had that night was unfortunately very dry and bland.
At the hot section, there are stir fried kailand with salted fish, stir fried river prawns with garlic and pepper sauce, stir fried chicken with cashew nut, stir fried beef with thai basil and chilli, pineapple fried rice and steamed seabass with Thai herbs.
There are claypot items as well such as yellow curry crab, beef with mild red curry sauce, red curried dish with coconut and pork green curry.
At the grill section, expect Classic Thai favourites like succulent char-grilled pork shoulder with a secret blend of spices and a juicy lam rack with lemongrass.
The brilliantly colourful Lup Chup (fruit-shaped desserts made of mung-bean flour with natural colouring) will take centre-stage at the dessert counter, together with an array of tempting desserts including Khao Niaow Ma Muang (Sweet Sticky Rice with mango), Tub Tim Krob (Red ruby in syrup and coconut milk) as well as Thai Tako (Thai pudding with coconut topping).
The ‘journey to Thailand’ experience is completed with traditional Thai classical dance performances on 4, 5, 11 & 12 October at 8 p.m.
