The annual Songkran festival in Thailand is a joyous event ringing in the New Year and is traditionally celebrated as a 3-day long water festival. This year, ThaiExpress has joined in the festivities with a specially curated menu of four delicious food items inspired by this iconic celebration. From now until 19th April, enjoy these dishes at any ThaiExpress outlets island wide. Songkran-Inspired Dishes
Phad Mee Phuket (pictured) – Stir-fried Thai-Style Bee Hoon (rice vermicelli) with Tiger Prawns. This dish is a treat for spice lovers. With a cornucopia of delicious flavours enticing your taste buds, indulge in the fragrant flavours of coconut, sweet and sour sauce and spices. Also, expect a generous serving of juicy tiger prawns scattered on top. Pla Muk Khi Khem – Thai-style Salted Egg Calamari. Thai dishes are always so flavourful and this dish is no exception. The deep-fried calamari is coated generously with a homemade sauce made from whole salted eggs.
