Embrace a Thai-style New Year’s Do-Over with Pai Thai’s Songkran Celebrations!
Three-course sharing menu offers unlimited authentic Thai classics and specials created exclusively for Songkran – at only AED280 per person
Dubai, UAE – 2 April 2018: If you’re looking to rewind the race to summer and celebrate New Year all over again, Pai Thai – the award-winning Thai dining destination in Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirah – is rolling out the red carpet for one of the world’s most popular New Year festivals, Songkran.
As Thailand’s most famous water festival, Songkran originated with locals collecting water that had been poured over Buddha statue for cleansing, which was then used to bless village elders and family members. Today, it has developed into a kingdom-wide water fight with emphasis on enjoyment and joviality as well as the spiritual and religious.
Fusing dining, décor, entertainment and overall value to create a truly unique and rich Songkran experience, Pai Thai guests can enjoy a true taste of Thailand from start to finish without having to hop on a plane. Following an authentic welcome among a lemongrass-scented water fountains, stunning lights and relaxing music, Head Chef Aphichat is bringing the culinary celebrations of Songkran to Dubai with an exclusive, three-course sharing menu of irresistible Thai classics and specials.
The special Songkran Set Menu features classic Thai starters such as Chor Muang (purple-flower chicken dumplings with fried onions, peanuts and sweet chilli sauce) and Kana Nuea Nam Man Hoy (wok-fried beef, Thai broccoli, garlic and mushroom in oyster sauce). Chef Aphichat has also created dishes exclusively for Songkran, including Pla Fu Yam Ma-Muang (crispy minced fish, sour mango salad, coriander, cashew nuts and lime sauce) and Thung Tong Sai Poo (crispy crab and prawns money bag with water chestnut, coriander and sweet chilli sauce.)
As for the mains, think Chu Chee Goong (crispy prawns, creamy red curry, ripe mangoes and kaffir lime leaves) and Kana Nuea Nam Man Hoy (wok-fried beef, Thai broccoli, garlic, mushroom and oyster sauce), while Tao Hoo Phad Meda Ma Muang (wok-fried tofu, onion, capsicum, chili, cashews and soya sauce) and Phad Nor Mai Fa Rang (wok-friend asparagus cooked with mushrooms, garlic, chilli and oyster sauce) are perfect for vegetarians. Be sure to save room for dessert, too, as the Tim Krob (crispy water chestnut, sugar syrup, coconut milk and crushed ice) will satisfy even the sweetest of teeth.
Make the most of the last few weeks of the alfresco dining weather and take a seat on the terrace, as in-house entertainer Wanthakan will also be entertaining guests with dance shows on Pai Thai’s majestic abra. What’s more, unique decorations, Buddha statues, impressive light installations and water rituals for those looking to ‘start their new year’ will make for the perfect Instagram-moment.
“Songkran is a unique opportunity to experience the very best of Pai Thai’s award-winning food during the last few weeks of the alfresco dining weather,” said Aphichat. “The food may be the prime lure but, in true Thai fashion, Pai Thai’s Songkran activities also include in-house entertainment, a stunning setting and so much more.”
