Aquamarine Marina Mandarin Singapore - Flavours of Siam Promotion - Array of Thai Desserts

If you love Thailand and the flavours it brings, you’re in luck. Marina Mandarin Singapore has specially flown in Guest Chef Aek Charttrakul, and his team from Bangkok’s Suan Dusit International Culinary, for a month-long ‘Flavours of Siam’ promotion at AquaMarine that will have you going “aroy”.

Aquamarine Marina Mandarin Singapore - Flavours of Siam Promotion - Fresh Chilled Seafood

Adding onto their smorgasbord of fresh chilled seafood offerings—no doubt the most popular station amongst diners—Chef Aek presents a delicious array of Thai delights, ranging from bright, adorable Thai desserts to scrumptious street food-style grub.

Aquamarine Marina Mandarin Singapore - Flavours of Siam Promotion - Red Curry with Roasted Duck

Start off heavy with the rich Kaeng phed ped yang (red curry with roasted duck), or fresh Alaskan king crabs that surprisingly pair well with Thai appetizers. The Meek rob (sweet and sour fried vermicelli) has a fantastic crunch, and the Kao tang na tang (crisp rice crackers with a savoury chicken dip) makes for great picking at.

Aquamarine Marina Mandarin Singapore - Flavours of Siam Promotion - Pandan Chicken

Other highlights include the moist, full-flavoured Gai ho bai toey (Pandan chicken)—that is slightly troublesome to take out, but entirely worth the trouble—Tom yum goong (Spicy and sour prawn soup with galangal and lemongrass) and Thai curried soft shell crab.

Aquamarine Marina Mandarin Singapore - Flavours of Siam Promotion - Custard Pudding

The selection of Thai desserts come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Aside from the usual, and well-loved, suspect of Khao neow mamuang (sticky rice with mango), the Sung kaya fak-tong (pumpkin with custard) and homely Bua loy puak (taro dumpling with coconut milk)—similar to our local bo bo char char—are worthy of mention.

The Flavours of Siam promotion is available for both lunch and dinner at Aquamarine, and runs through 31 March 2013.

Daily Buffet Lunch (12pm – 2.30pm): S$58 adult, $29 child
Weekday Buffet Dinner (6.30pm – 10.30pm): S$68 adult, $34 child

What started out as just something fun for Jasper has developed into a passion for food over the years. Always having weird urges to take pictures of other diners’ food, he is used to being forcefully restrained by dining companions, but has yet to have security called on him. Jasper is open to all sorts of cuisines and dishes, and is always on the lookout for a good meal or deal. To him, an ideal restaurant is one that combines good food, friendly service and a warm ambience. "Food is all about the dining experience."
