“Khao Chae” Thai Summer Essential (Period: 12-19 April 2014) and A Culinary Blast from the Past

April 1, 2014 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

Thai summers are known to be very hot and one good thing about them is the tradition of eating “Khao Chae”.

This Thai summer delicacy, consisting of Jasmine rice with chilled Jasmine scented water and a selection of traditional condiments, apparently has very ancient origins that go back to the reign of King Rama II when it was consumed in the Royal Courts. It was not until the time of King Rama V that Khao Chae became a popular widely consumed dish appreciated for its cooling and refreshing properties. Try it for lunch at Romsai during 12-19 April to celebrate the Songkran festivities.

Open daily: Lunch, 12.00pm – 2.30pm

Dinner, 6.00pm – 10.30pm

Weekend Brunch, 12.00am – 3.00pm
