Aerocity near Indira Gandhi International Airport ‘Delhi, is a recent development which everyone is looking upto. The development is coming up with many hotels including both 4 star and 5 star , big name and local players. Among them JW Marriot stands tall and is doing wonderful business in terms of accommodation and Restaurant business. Speaking of Restaurants it’s K3 which has made a mark on the high society of Delhi. With its staggering 300+ covers and their many specialty live kitchen, it has actually impressed everyone.
They also have specialized segment which from the usual menu offers something special to the diners. This time it is Bangkok Street food festival for which they have set up a beautiful section and the menu is specially curated by very experienced chef of the same cuisine.
Essence of Thai food is basically the balance of flavors between saltiness, sourness and sweetness.
Dishes have been modified by the chefs so that the food can be enjoyed by vegetarians, it’s not that Thailand does not have vegetarian population but staple Vegetarian food in Thailand is very basic, meant for Monks.
Coming to the menu, first thing on the menu was a Thai classic fried cakes. In vegetarian, it was actually mashed vegetables with thai seasoning and in non veg there was fish cake along with fish some portion of shell fish. Tom Yum Phak – spicy vegetarian soup with lemon grass taste which was really nice and fresh. In the non – veg option they had tom yum Goong which is Spicy prawn with lemon grass.Som Tam ( Raw papaya salad ) was street food rustic, made to perfection without over doing the recipe
Main course was placed in form of a buffet and I loved them all. They had Geang kiee wan kai ( chicken green curry) which was mildly spiced , Panang Tow Hoo (tofu version )which was creamy and very well made. Panang is different from Red curry as it has creaminess from cashew and bit of chillies. Served along with stick rice & Phad Phak Ruam ( stir fired vegetables with light soya sauce )
They also had Pla Neung Manao – Which was an excellent fresh steamed fish with red chilies and lemon.
But the best was reserved for the last which was Thab Thim Grob – Water chestnut with coconut syrup. This was the showstopper and I have not tasted a better version of this dessert ever. It was a real danger to the blogger’s wait line.
They are also serving a special cocktail menu infused with Thai flavors starting at Rs 900++ per cocktail
