Returning for the third year in a row, Chang Sensory Trails—the annual Thai food festival organised by Thailand’s award-winning beer, Chang—lands back in Singapore after a world tour in London and Los Angeles to bring a weekend that celebrates everything we love about Thai cuisine and culture through the culmination of Singapore’s finest Thai restaurants, art, music and not forgetting, refreshing Chang beer.
Chang Sensory Trails is the perfect festival for all Thai food lovers to experience and savour different varieties and sample different styles of Thai cuisine. Celebrating the delicacy and diversity of Thai cuisine, this year’s edition of Chang Sensory Trails features 24 signature dishes by eight Singapore-based Thai restaurants.
At the event, the chefs vow to serve nothing but authentic flavours of Thailand—delving deep into the country’s rich culinary heritage and exploring both Northern and Southern cuisine instead of just your usual tom yum and green curry.
From the 31 August to 01 September 2018, 4pm to 10pm, expect nothing but the best of authentic Thai home recipes done by eight Singapore-based Thai restaurants. Are you ready?!
With a focus on Thai home recipes this year, the festival aims to share with the world the Thai philosophy of Lamiat through food. Lamiat means paying attention to detail and looking beyond the ordinary in order to appreciate the small things that refine and produce perfection.
With Thai cuisine demonstrating the purest expression of Lamiat through its use of different herbs, spices and fresh ingredients, Chang and the featuring Thai chefs and restaurants strive to bring the real and natural flavours of Thailand to its international audience.
A definite must try on the list is their Thai Style Prime Ribs with Aroydee Signature Sauce. Their prime rib is huge and juicy with a crisp and satisfying bite to it. Not to be missed are also their Stir-Fried Soft Shell Crab With Chilli And Garlic and their Green Mango Salad.
Serving up a stellar repertoire of tasty dishes that stem from Northeastern Thailand’s Isaan cuisine, Baan Ying is one that delves away from your typical Thai fare. They offer a twist on a classic with their Dry Tom Yum Goong Noodles with Lava Egg as well as their finger-licking-good Hai Yat Fried Chicken with Sticky Rice.
Bangkok Jam strikes familiar chords with all of us and for a good reason too. At the event, indulge in their Thai Style Fish & Chips that are served with crispy fries, tom yum aioli as well as their Grilled Australian steak paired with papaya salad and pandan sticky rice. There’s no need to be jealous of what others are having when you finish your meal off with their Green with Envy Snow Ice.
As if fried rice in a pineapple didn’t seem interesting enough, Gin Khao serves Watermelon Fried Rice in, well, a watermelon. Loaded with ingredients, it makes for the perfect main alongside their Tom Yum Spam Fries and their Salted Egg Fish Skin.
Serving up succulent morsels of pork, Little Elephant’s Kor Moo Yang(Grilled Pork Neck) is sure to have you salivating while they plate up your orders for you. If that’s not enough, order their Nam Tok Kor Moo Yang (Grilled Pork Neck Salad) and Stir Fry Sliced Beef with Holy Basil, they’re sure to leave you satisfied.
Sticking to mainly rice mains, Long Chim offers dishes such as Grilled Pork Skewers with Sticky Rice, Spicy Pork with Rice Cakes as well as Deep Fried Wings with Sticky Rice.
Tamarind Hill is serving up Deep-fried Prawns with Crispy Noodles, reminiscent of our favourite bamee noodles, but better. Top it off with their Mango Sticky Rice and Taro Fritters for the most indulgent meal ever.
Their Grilled Khao Yai Chicken is their signature grilled chicken, marinated with coriander and white peppercorns which goes well with their Glutinous Brown Rice. As to what to end your meal with, perhaps their Thai Milk Tea Pudding would be the answer.
AND THERE’S MORE!
