Thai Satay with fresh Peanut Sauce

Satay, or originated in Indonesia, but can now be found throughout South Asia, and especially Thailand. Satay is also well known in most Thai restaurants in Europe and America and so will have a variation of this classic starter.

Satay is succulent and a simple dish, yet highly versatile, making it a great starter or can even be served as a main barbeque menu item. It is fun to prepare and eat, tasty and highly portable. For these reasons, its wide-spread popularity is well deserved!

Thai Satay is usually made with chicken of pork, but can be found with beef or lamb. The traditional accompaniment to satay is a sweet and spicy peanut dipping sauce. Traditionally this sauce is a complex blend of dried and fresh spices combined with freshly roasted and ground peanuts cooked in coconut milk. This sauce is then seasoned with fish sauce, shrimp paste, palm sugar and tamarind.

At the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers we were served pork and chicken satay with a selection of juicy dips, and a side serving of spicy mango salad. Yummy!!

The luxury riverside hotel in Bangkok is located beside the mighty Chao Phraya River. The award-winning Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers is renowned for its refined luxury 5 star Bangkok hotel and exceptional service, ensuring an unforgettable stay for all guests.


Khao Soy History

Northern Thailand’s popular noodle-based curry dish Khao Soy, was until fairly recently considered as street food. However, these days it is a must have dish for many Thai and foreign visitors alike. Throughout the northern provinces of Thailand it is usually served at lunch time. But due to its fantastic taste, beautiful presentation, and the use of nutritious ingredients, Khao Soy has been elevated to its rightful place as the signature dish of northern Thai cuisine, and hence can be found on dinner tables throughout the day.

Khao Soy can now also be found on most luxury hotel menus, as we experienced at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers.

Tremendous food on offer, makes a fantastic leisurely lunch.

Come on down and enjoy!

Many thanks to Yuan our driver from Thailand International Tours that day, who was very patient and very hospitable.
