Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL presents ‘Flavours of Thai’

I never fail to enjoy myself every time I dine at Plaza Brasserie. Great company complemented with good food, what more can I ask for?

There is something so alluring about this place that keeps me wanting to come back for more. :)

From 5 September to 31 October 2012, Plaza Brasserie presents Flavours of Thai –an empirical interpretation of Thai cuisine by Executive Chef Jackson Goh. He is not Thai per se, but do not belittle his expertise and his deep understanding of the culturally rich Thai cuisine.

Blending vibrant colours and invigorating flavours, this is no mundane dinner session.

Let the feast begin.

Sawadee ka.

Starters include the Tom Yam Fruit Salad, Thai Beef Salad, Thai Glass Noodle Salad, Thai Duck Salad, Thai Papaya Salad, Thai Seafood Salad, Thai Spring Rolls, Thai Fish Cakes, Thai Chicken Wings, Thai Prawns on Toast and Deep-fried Minced Shrimps with Thai Herbs.

Thai Fish Cakes

The Tom Yum Fruit Salad – comprising an assortment of fresh fruits, diced and lightly coated with a piquant sauce – is highly appetising!

The Thai Chicken Wings is another top pick. Deboned and stuffed with minced succulent meat, this well-upholstered wing will give you double the satisfaction.

Thai Papaya Salad

Thai Glass Noodles Salad

The interplay of herbs and spices creates a refreshing taste in every bite. Chilli padi is added for that extra spicy oomph. For those who can’t take the heat, focus on what you’re putting into your mouth because you wouldn’t want the seeds of the chilli padi to end up on your tongue.

Prawn Cake

The Prawn Cake is another must-have. Succulent prawn, crispy breaded crust, and a complementing sweet and slightly spicy sauce –these are the makings of a scrumptious starter.

Thai Fish Maw Soup

While perusing the buffet spread, it would be easy to gloss over the unostentatious-looking pot – that would be a mistake, as it contains mouth-watering Thai Fish Maw Soup.

The soup is thick, opaque, and suspended with an abundance of ingredients. I find it tremendously tasty without getting that intense thirst, normally experienced after consuming MSG-laden soups.

Thai Beef Noodles

Order a bowl of Thai Beef Noodles at the Live Station. This deeply flavoured soup never fails to please. Thumbs up to the succulent meatballs!

Stir Fried Minced Pork in ‘Thai Style’

Stir Fried Kai Lan in ‘Thai Style’

Roast Duck in Red Curry

Any duck lovers here? This is my first time eating duck that’s braised in curry! The flavours are spot on.

Back by popular demand is their ‘catch of the day’, available from Mondays to Thursdays.

Steamed Pomfret in Green Curry

Cooked upon order, you can choose from a variety of fish – Promfret, Sea Bass, Kee Fish and Tilapia – to be either steamed or fried, and prepared in your preferred sauce, including Spicy Thai Lime and Chilli, Thai Green Curry, Thai Red Curry or Basil in Coconut Cream.

Steamed Sea Bass in Spicy Thai Lime Sauce

Fresh fish is executed at its best here –moist and tender. The refreshing pairing of citrus and chilli is indeed appetite stimulating!

Steamed Sea Bass in Red Curry

There are four kinds of fish to choose from, but the sea bass is a personal favourite. Here is another rendition of this lean meaty fish. The red curry is superb; it is richly flavoured without being heavy on the stomach. Highly recommended!

Available 365 days a year, the sashimi station never fails to provide pristinely fresh salmon, tuna and octopus –sliced upon order.

Crispy Soft Shell Crabs

What I love most about Plaza Brasserie is their Soft Shell Crabs, also available 365 days a year. The buffet is well stocked, so you needn’t have to worry about not getting a heap or two on your plates.

This is MY heap of the very tempting soft shell crabs. All mine. After seeing how much I was enjoying it, Celes went back to get me a second heap. Thanks dearie~

A meal is never complete without dessert!

The chocolate truffle cake, available all year round, is a must-have.

My usual favourites are their cakes! But since the theme is ‘Flavours of Thai’, Thai desserts take centre stage.

Tapioca with Coconut Cream

Banana Fritters

Glutinous Rice with Durian Paste

Thai Red Ruby with Coconut Cream

It was a night full of fun and laughter! Thanks Karen, Hazel, Celes, Elaine and Peter for the great company.

Hazel’s decadent chocolate cake :)
