Shangri-La Hotel, Suzhou Offers Authentic Thai Cuisine

October 18, 2014 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

Shangri-La Hotel, Suzhou will offer guests authentic Thai cuisine at Café Soo from 18 October to 2 November 2014.  Diners will enjoy not only the tasty classic and popular Thai delicacies by chefs from Thailand, but also the exquisite Thai fruit carving art, traditional dancing and Muay Thai performance.  For more information or reservations, please call Café Soo at (86 512) 6808 0168 extension 22.

Ms. Chnakarn from Thailand leads the Thailand Food Festival with support from Thai snack expert Ms. Nareerat N.  The team from Thailand has prepared three menus, including an appetiser, soup, hot dish, main dish and dessert, for this promotion.  Guests can luxuriate in all the authentic and delicious Thai food, such as Tom Yum Soup, Sashimi Shrimp Salad, Pandan Chicken, Fried Shrimp Cake, Sticky Rice with Mango, Thai Beef and Lime Soup, Pandan Coconut Rice Pudding and so on.

“Thailand Food Festival is another signature event of our Café Soo, following this year’s Taiwan Food Festival in March.  We aim to bring the most classic and authentic cuisine all around the world to Suzhou, and let the local guests enjoy these original flavours without all the way flying around,” said the hotel’s new director of food and beverage, Ms. Sara Xue.  “Also, the guests not only can revel in the pleasure of food, but also can have a glimpse of Thai art and culture and get more familiar with Thailand!”

As interesting as the Thai cuisine is the renowned Thai fruit carving art presentation at Café Soo during the food festival.  The art of Thai fruit carving originated from the Sukhothai Dynasty.  It was considered one of the 10 greatest arts during the Ayutthaya Kingdom period.  Becoming a real fruit carving expert takes a very long time of study and practice.

Furthermore, traditional dance performers will arrive at Shangri-La Hotel, Suzhou, along with the Thai chefs.  They will dance in their traditional attire to Thai music.  The more exciting part would be the traditional Thai combat art – Muay Thai.

Buffet prices at Café Soo during the Thailand Food Festival will remain at RMB158 per person for lunch from Monday to Friday and RMB178 on Saturday and Sunday; and at RMB248 per person for dinner from Monday to Sunday.  All prices are subject to a 15 per cent service charge.
