At recent in December I attended the launch of the food promotion from the 4 Regions of Thailand at Barn Thai. The lunch showcased the best of the 4 regions with a narrative guide to each dish by Barn Thai’s Executive Thai Chef.
Her Excellency, Miss Saowalak Chaichuson who is the Charge d’affaires a. i, of the Royal Thai Embassy Malaysia was present at the luncheon together with First Secretary, Mr. Nattapong Suwanpakdee. Also in attendance Mr. Suwat Kumwong, Director for Tourism Authority of Thailand and Mr. Suttichoke Rodleechit, General Manager for Thai Airways International Malaysia was at the event.
Geographically, Thailand is a diverse country. Thais generally divide it into four distinct regions. The Central region is largely delta country, dominated by the Chao Phraya River, and with rich soil. Southern Thailand is peninsula country, with the Andaman Sea on one side and the Gulf of Thailand on the other. The North is cool and mountainous. Northeastern Thailand is a vast plateau and flanked by the Mekong River. Each region has its own distinct cuisine, some are not even found in Bangkok.
Most Malaysians and also expats here do not really understand that there are many types of cooking depending on the region in Thailand. Most people are only used to what they get in Bangkok. This food promotion will truly expand their knowledge and also showcase the distinct flavors of the different cuisines found in Thailand.
The food creation from the 4 Regions of Thailand at Barn Thai truly captured my attention and got myself to try them out from the elegant buffet line. The dishes presented were stunningly beautiful and delicious to indulge. The lunch experience had surely captivated the heart of the guests as most of the dishes were wiped clean. My favourite was their fish dishes as every dish was unique and had me charmed in flavour and taste, brilliant. If you are in this neighbourhood you must give Barn Thai a try like I did.
