Mango Tree Takes You On A Culinary Journey To Chiang Mai


Mango Tree Takes You On A Culinary Journey To Chiang Mai


How do you feel about this story?


Mango Tree invites food lovers to embark on a culinary journey to Chiang Mai, the cultural heart of Northern Thailand, with a preview launch of its new regional dishes.

Thailand has four major regions—the north, north east, central, and south. Each region has its own unique cuisine that infuse a balance of sweet, sour, spicy, and salty flavors in each dish. Northern
Thai cuisine is especially known for its use of aromatic ingredients and bold flavors including the use of
fermented ingredients and dry heat cooking methods.

Mango Tree’s Chiang Mai dishes are inspired by a recent trip the chefs took to Thailand. The chefs of both Mango Tree Philippines and Mango Tree global teams were invited to learn about Northern Thailand culture and cuisine by immersing with the locals and exploring traditional cuisine with Northern Hill Tribes and culinary masters of Northern Thai cuisine such as Chef Kannika Tassanaprasit, an Iron Chef Thailand challenger, and Chef Phanuphon “Black” Bulsuwan. The result is a menu that showcases Chiang Mai’s unique flavors and culinary traditions including Miang Kham, Nam Prik Noom, Chiang Mai Laarb Khua, Sai Oua, Hill Tribe Aeb Pla, Kaeng Hang Le, and Khao Soi.

The Chiang Mai selection will be available starting October 15, 2023 with dishes exclusive to Mango Tree and Mango Tree Cafe stores in the Philippines.

The preview launch gives guests a peek into Chiang Mai with welcome drinks and snacks, the chance to feel like a local with traditional costumes, learn about different hill tribes, and taste some exotic grub (malang thod). Guests may also enjoy Thai-inspired chocolate bonbons created just for the event consisting of Passionfruit and Mango, Thai Milk Tea, and Coconut Pandan flavors.

The Mango Tree brand was introduced to the Philippines in 2010 and currently has nine (9) stores nationwide including Mango Tree and Mango Tree Cafe. The first Mango Tree opened in 1994 at Surawong, Bangkok and has over 70 locations in Thailand, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong,
Singapore, China, United Arab Emirates, and United Kingdom.
