Dusit Thani Manila’s Benjarong Thai Restaurant celebrates ‘Loy Krathong’

The much-awaited Thai Festival of Lights is a sight to behold. Thai locals set afloat elaborately decorated krathongs or miniature rafts adorned with flowers and candles, waiting to be swept away by the tides. Dubbed “Loy Krathong”, this breathtaking ritual is symbolic of thanksgiving, starting afresh and ushering in good luck. Held annually during the rise of the full moon on the twelfth lunar month, this year’s Loy Krathong falls on November 28, 2012.

Benjarong Royal Thai Restaurant participates in the festivities with a commemorative family-style set menu good for four (4) persons priced at PHP 4,999 net. Available from November 15 to 30 for Lunch and Dinner, share this filling meal of the finest Thai appetizers, salad, soup, main dishes and desserts befitting this grand celebration.

The set menu includes these rich and flavorful Thai starters: Krathong Thong Sai Gung (Deep-fried prawns, chicken, and corn kernels in pastry cup), Thon Song Chaw Suan (Deep-fried vegetables with sweet chili sauce), Som Tam Chaw Ley (Spicy green papaya with seafood salad) and Tom Yum Gung (Hot and sour prawn soup)

For the main course, guests are presented with Pla Krob Krathiem Phrik Thai (Deep-fried fish fillet with garlic sauce), Palam Den Dhong (Stir-fried beef tenderloin with green curry), and Phad Pak Benjarong (Stir-fried mixed vegetables with oyster sauce). The meal is capped off sweetly with local Thai delicacies including Khao Niao Sang Kha Yaa (Custard coconut with sticky rice) and Pol Lamai Ruam (Assorted fresh fruit) to cap off the meal sweetly.
