MÖVENPICK Hotel Mactan Island Cebu treats Cebu to another gastronomic adventure as it presents Thai Fun Food Festival at The Sails restaurant.
Best identified for its varied dinner buffet themes, The Sails caters to discerning palates with its wide range of dinner buffet serving delicious dishes from different origins, available on weekdays and weekends. To add zest to its nightly culinary showcase, the hotel invited three chefs from its sister hotel, Mövenpick Resort and Spa Karon Beach Phuket, to take the lead in their kitchen. For the entire duration of the food festival, from Sept. 10 to 18, the guest chefs will be seen in action around The Sails, cooking and serving authentic yet diverse specialities that reflect the Thai culture, ingenuity and tradition.
“We live by our service philosophy of bringing something fun and fresh, to be a trailblazer of genres and flavors,” says Harold Rainfroy, general manager. “We always aim to bring in new excitement in various seasons to delight our guests of different nationalities.”
“Thai cuisine captures the interest of many, not only for its enigmatic and exotic cultural influences, but also for the interplay and harmony of flavors present in each dish,” explains Christian Bouby, executive chef. “The playful and creative nature of the Thai people is visible on every plate they serve. They are very adventurous when it comes to texture and essence.”
Chef Bouby is proud to put the spotlight on the three guest chefs from Phuket, Thailand, namely Wiwat Yong-en, Sutee Yamkratho and Teenasit Nakrua.
“Our team is excited to work with these three kitchen superstars,” says Jeryl Tio, food and beverage manager. “They are bringing with them years of experience and innovation in Thai culinary traditions, with age-old recipes tweaked with modern sensibilities. The menu selections they’re preparing for this food festival will all use special ingredients they’ve sourced from Thailand. That’s as far as we go when it comes to bringing authentic flavors to the table, and it’s definitely something we all look forward to.”
Finally, not only can guests taste the flavors of Thailand, but they can also find their way to the beautiful country of Thailand. All guests who dine during the Thai Fun Food Festival get a chance to win a round-trip Cebu-Manila-Phuket ticket courtesy of Cebu Pacific, and a gift certificate for a two-night stay in Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket.
