Thai temptations

IT IS all about spicy food and tangy kerabu salads at the Saffron Brasserie, Ancasa Hotel & Spa, Kuala Lumpur, where Thai food is the highlight until June 13.

Thai chefs Sarawut Tangsre and Piphat Uhuphanit cook up a variety of dishes from their home country.

Yummy: The platter of baked mussels beckons customers at the AncasaHotel & Spa Thai Food Festival.

To kick-start your meal, try the spicy tom yam prawn soup or, if you prefer something milder, go for the spicy mango kerabu or papaya salad.

If it is something more savoury you fancy, the fried fish cakes is the dish to sample.

Among the more popular dishes at the main course buffet table are the stir-fried cashew nut chicken and green curry beef.

There is an array of Thai desserts to wrap up the meal and a couple that is not commonly available locally are the tapioca in banana syrup and Thai pudding pumpkin.
