WhatsApp Image 2017-04-27 at 11.23.19 PM

Being a big fan of Thai food and having eaten around Bangkok – I was excited when Radisson Hotel decided to fly over chefs from Radisson Blu Bangkok to come over and cook for their buffet spread! You know that means all the tom yams and different types of Thai style curries you can eat! But of course – this will be a chance to savour as much Thai food as possible. Considering Thai restaurants are pretty popular nowadays in Brunei and they are kinda pricey ~ it’s good to be able to enjoy a wide variety of Thai food at a classy comfortable setting!

One thing you love about Radisson Theme buffets is that they always make an extra effort to liven up the place! I really love the umbrellas hanging on the ceilings! You will also hear soothing Thai music in the background while you are enjoying the food!

The basket that the chef was carrying was actually my fav dish of the night! Miang Kham is a traditional snack from Thailand!

The name "miang kham" translates to "one bite wrap", from miang and kham. The blend of toasted coconut and peanut, ginger,, peanut, lime and chili, wrapped with fresh betel nut leaves and drizzled with a secret sweet sour tamarind sauce is an amazing combo of flavours exploding in one bite!

Luckily the chefs have done all the hard work for you and wrapped them nicely for you to enjoy ~ YOU MUST MAKE SURE YOU ADD THE SAUCE! That is a vital component of this dish and it is soooo goood! I think I had more than 10 of these myself. LOL.
