Celebrating its 55th anniversary this year, Thai Airways International has teamed up with award-winning restaurant, Bo.lan for an exclusive onboard culinary experience.
From 1 May to 15 August 2015, Thai Airways will be providing special Thai cuisine by the world-famous restaurant for both its Royal Silk Class and Economy Class passengers on Singapore to Bangkok flights (with the exception of TG402).
For the inflight menu, passengers can expect the flavours and scents of Thai street food, refined with a touch of class and finesse, courtesy of Bo.lan. The new dishes will consist of fragrant puffed rice infused with kaffir lime and lemongrass, a delectable bowl of rich fish curry scented with morning glory and kaffir lime, served with Thai Hom Mali rice and a delicate side of stir-fried pickled turnip.
Needless to say, the meal is a far cry from the typical airplane food we all love to hate. General manager of Thai Airways Singapore, Mr. Kittiphong Sansomboon was keen to emphasise that the dining experience is a move to ensure travelling with the airline is always a memorable experience.
“We think this special dish designed by the award-winning celebrity chefs from a leading restaurant in Thailand, Bo.lan, reflects how serious we are when it comes to satisfying our customers,” he said. “We want to make sure they enjoy their journey as we celebrate our 55th anniversary.”
The restaurant behind the new menu has been one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for the past three years, clinching no. 37 in 2015. Bo.lan is famed for serving up authentic Thai cuisine using ancient recipes. It is run by husband and wife team, Dylan Jones and Duangporn ‘Bo’ Songvisava who was named Best Female Chef at the 50 Best Restaurants in Asia Awards in 2013.
Thailand has always been known for its world-famous cuisine, and now we have a chance to experience before we even reach the country. For that reason alone travelling Thai Airways seems worth it. Thai Airways operates 32 flights a week from Singapore to Bangkok, so be sure to book your flight soon.
