Finally! A #DineWithWMFA feast at a Thai restaurant! If you’ve followed our journey, you would have probably figured out by now that we absolutely love good Thai food. For some the cuisine is exotic but for us, it’s purely comfort food. And what better place that the Thai Kitchen at the gorgeous Park Hyatt Dubai to host our intimate little feast.
The location of the restaurant and hotel is beyond breathtaking. We loved the open spaces, the view of the creek and greenery adorned the entire restaurant. Its the perfect escape if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We absolutely loved the fact that the event was a private affair, with the restaurant being open only for the guests of #DineWithWMFA. That means we get the entire kitchen and restaurant for ourselves! Woot!
Cooking with Thai Masterchef Supattra:
The charmingly charismatic Chef Supattra who is renowned for her Thai cooking all over the country was kind enough to host a private masterclass for our guests where she got to showcase just how amazing and authentic her Thai recipes really are. We started off with a Spicy Thai Beef Salad with cucumbers, onions and tomatoes. Preparing the salad was relatively easy and it was amazing to discover how something so simple can taste this delicious. We then moved on to learn how she prepares her aromatic spicy and sour prawn soup with lemongrass, that seemed a bit more complicated to prepare but tasted oh so delicious! We’re definitely coming back for more of that! And lastly, we were then transferred to the wok station where she prepared this gorgeous roasted duck in red curry with pineapple that was so good, we could drink it like soup!
A Thai Feast:
As soon as we wrapped up with our masterclass, we then moved outside to the restaurant’s terrace where a beautifully set up table was laid out for us and we got to sample some of Thai Kitchen’s signature dishes, including the dishes we prepared during our masterclass. The moment was so serene and the food was delectable; a little part of us wanted time to stand still.
All in all, it was a brilliant afternoon, filled with good food and good company. We are truly and immensely thankful to the fabulous team at Thai Kitchen and the management at Park Hyatt Dubai for planning this event effortlessly. Everything was beyond perfect and rest assured, we left the restaurant with lots and lots of precious memories.
