Eight Thai restaurants participating in Chang Sensory Trails 2018 will be serving up their signature dishes inspired by the home recipes their Thai chefs grew up with.

Singapore – Chang Sensory Trails, the annual Thai food festival organised by Thailand’s leading beer brand, Chang, returns to Singapore for its third edition with a special emphasis on Thai home recipes. Celebrating the delicacy and diversity of Thai cuisine, this year’s edition of the Chang Sensory Trails features 24 signature dishes by eight Singapore-based Thai restaurants. Having travelled to London and Los Angeles earlier this year, Chang Sensory Trails will land in Singapore from 31 August to 1 September 2018 at The Lawn at Marina Bay.

Eight Thai restaurants participating in Chang Sensory Trails 2018 will be serving up their signature dishes inspired by the home recipes their Thai chefs grew up with. The eight restaurants are: Aroy Dee, Baan Ying, Bangkok Jam, Gin Khao, Little Elephant, Long Chim, Tamarind Hill and Un-Yang-Kor-Dai. Some of their signature dishes include highlights such as Thai Style Prime Ribs with Aroydee Signature Sauce from Aroy-Dee, Fried Shrimp and Pork Paste Toast from Baan Ying, Thai Style Fish & Chips from Bangkok Jam, Grilled Pork Neck Salad, from Little Elephant, Watermelon Fried Rice from Gin Khao, Spicy Pork Rice Cake from Long Chim, Deep-fried Prawns with Crispy Noodles from Tamarind Hill and Grilled Khao Yai Chicken from Un-Yong-Kor-Dai.

Thai cuisine, like the crafting of Chang beer, embodies the Thai philosophy of Lamiat, which emphasises attention to detail and looking beyond the ordinary. Underpinning this philosophy is the deep and authentic appreciation of the small things that refine and produce perfection. Thai cuisine demonstrates the purest expression of Lamiat, with its use of many different herbs, spices and fresh ingredients, each contributing to the overall balanced flavours in Thai dishes.

Chang, through the Chang Sensory Trails, collaborates with Thai chefs and restaurants around the world to share this Thai philosophy of Lamiat as expressed through food. Cooking for an international audience outside of Thailand, they strive to bring the real and natural flavours of Thailand, ensuring that what they serve is authentic and not “tourist” Thai cuisine.

Adding to the multisensory experience, the illustrations of Singaporean illustrator GalactikCaptain from local collective Band of Doodlers can be found on the facades of the food booths, on tabletops as well as the Chang Sensory Trails photo wall. Local bands, O.K Ready! and 53A will also be performing on 31 August and 1 September respectively to entertain visitors while they enjoy their Thai culinary favourites.

Chang Sensory Trails 2018 is the third edition in this unique culinary series that gathers a plethora of Thai culinary flavours over one weekend in Singapore at The Lawn at Marina Bay from Friday, 31 August to Saturday, 1 September 2018 from 4pm to 10pm.
