The experience to try out glorious flavors of Thai food was open to the public on the 12th October 2022 from 7 pm onwards. Cinnamon Lakeside took its pride in introducing bursting flavors of Thai Street Food with different courses from soups to desserts.
The exclusive pre-tasting was an invitation to indulge in a rich dining experience at the Royal Thai restaurant. The Area Vice President of Cinnamon City Hotels, Kamal Munasinghe invited special guests for the launch to explore a four course Thai lunch with the Marketing manager at Cinnamon Lakeside.
The lunch was a brief of the Thai Food Festival that consisted of uniquely fragrant rices, typical Thai creamy soups, decadent spiced infused curries and carefully prepared salad specials. There was a mix of sweet, salt, spice, butter, juicy and flavored indulgence on all the meat and vegetarian dishes served at the pre-tasting exquisite lunch.
The public were given the opportunity to experience the food culture at the Thai Food Festival from the 12th October – 19th October 2022 from 7 pm – 11 pm sequentially. As a guest at the food festival, you have to pay 5200 nett per head and enjoy an unlimited variety of delightful Thai flavors available beside the lake at Cinnamon Lakeside.
We had a pre tasting experience with a few of the dishes that were served at Royal Thai. You can enjoy an exclusively elite dining experience at the restaurant with its chic and cozy ambience.
Here’s a few dishes we got to experience at the Royal Thai:
- Jasmine rice
An authentic bowl of aromatic rice, steamed to perfection. This is a must try with all their delicious collection of sweet and chili dishes available in their menu.
- Chicken green curry
An exquisite central Thai variety that is prepared with green chilis and it has a twist of hot spice. It had a creamy texture and the chicken was tender with its combination of lemon grass and cumin seed aphrodisiac. Perfect for attracting spice lovers and would have loved to have a good portion of this dish to enjoy with the Jasmine rice.
- Lamb hot basil
A mix of perfectly minced lamb, densed with a sweet and chilli sauce. You wouldn’t feel a lamb sensation while you indulge with the curry itself. Prepared with a touch of Thai perfection. If you are a meat lover, this can be an ideal meat experience!
- The Dessert plate
We were served with a feasting and colorful Thai cultured plate of sweet delights. Your sweet tooth is satisfied in between mild to a typical locally infused rich taste of tropical flavors such as the coconut mousse, coconut ice cream, mango pudding, banana fritters!
The above dishes were from a palate tasting session. There were plenty of exquisite Thai cuisine prepared by a Thai chef at the Royal Thai restaurant.
