Mango Tree presents an explosion of flavors at Thai Street Food Festival

One “food-culture” that is very common in most South East Asian countries are the Street food culture. The Philippines, a country that is rich in culture is no exception when it comes to street food that is quite embedded in all Filipino palate. 

Thailand, the Philippines’ South East Asian neighbor cradles a similar food culture that captivates not only Asians but many people across the globe. From April 20 to May 15, Mango Tree and Mango Tree Bistro are holding a street food festival that will feature a wide variety of gastronomical delight and an explosion of authentic Thai’s flavors and spices. 

Goong Phad Wonsen or the Stir-fried Noodles with Shrimps
 Last month, I had the opportunity to be invited to experience these Thai street food that was prepared exclusively for selected guests and media. Chef Tum, the new executive chef of Mango Tree have creatively designed an amazing line-up of dishes and street food favorites that were quite common to our street food here in the Philippines but with a Thai twist. 

Pork Dynamite...
These will include Tom Yum Chicken Poppers, Salmon Skin Crisp (Chicharon), Tom Yum Fries, and Pork Dynamite, among others. The Thai Street food festival is designed to feature the common everyday food that is being cooked on the side-walks of Thailand but highlights some of Thai cuisine very common to Pinoy taste such as the Tom Yum and Pad Thai dishes. It is a fusion of the Thai cuisine that will all enjoy with the ordinary common street, that if you mix them together, street food becomes extra special.

Spicy Squid Salad...
Other dishes to look forward to include the Pla Meuk Thod or Fried Squid Rings; The Goong Phad Wonsen or Stir-fried Glass Noodles with Shrimps, and the Lard Pla Meuk or the Spicy Squid Salad. And definitely not to be missed is the Thai style halo-halo.
