I consider Thailand as a second home country because we used to go to Bangkok every year before getting pregnant). We really like the culture and the food! But after giving birth, we obviously couldn't travel as much as before. So when I was invited to Mango Tree's Thai Street Food Festival, I was thrilled.
The event was held at Mango Tree restaurant in Bonifacio High Street Central, BGC.
The Thai Street Food Festival of Mango Tree coincides with Thailand's annual Songkran Festival. The promotion is from April 20 to May 15, 2016 where Mango Tree offers a symphony of visual delight and explosion of unique, gastronomic flavors and spices.
Chef Prapun Sampungpong aka Chef Tum is the new executive chef and he created a line of dishes that definitely represents Thai. They were savory, hot and simply delicious.
Here are the dishes that we were able to try during the event:
Tom Yum Fries
Yum Ma Muang
Larb Pla Meuk
Spicy Squid Salad
Goong Phad Wonsen
Stir-fried Glass Noodles with Shrimps
Salmon Skin Crisps
Salmon Skin Chicharon
Fried Squid Rings
Tom Yum Chicken Poppers
Other than those, we were also able to try some of the dishes that are part of their main stay menu:
Thai Halo Halo
Cassava with Coconut Milk
Thai Milk Tea
Even if it's called "street food", they were actually quite filling. My favorites of the bunch are the Tom Yum Fries, Tom Yum Chicken Poppers and the Goong Phad Wonsen. The prices aren't that bad either. At P100-P200, it was quite affordable.
This wasn't my first time at Mango Tree. I remember celebrating our wedding anniversary at Mango Tree Bistro a few years back. And this promotion will take place in all Mango Tree and Mango Tree Bistro branches. Moreover, I know that the promotion is already ongoing, so I highly suggest that you visit Mango Tree soon.
