Siam Tea Room
Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, Bangkok’s largest luxury hotel, is meticulously craft summer’s favorite “Khao Chae Chao Wang” to put the heat at bay. Originally created in Ratchaburi, the recipe is prepared to offer as tribute to the heavenly gods and treat the monks during Thai traditional New Year or Songkran festival. Sao Hai rice is cooked and infused with aromatic smoke until supple and fragrant. The rice is then added with smoke-scented floral water made from 5 types of fragrant flowers – ylang-ylang, bread flower (chomanad), damask rose, white champaka and jasmine – that gives every bite a subtle, cooling floral scent.
The ice used is also made from jasmine flower-infused water to even further enhance the aroma.
The floral rice is served alongside the 7 condiments. There’s deep-fried “look kapi” where fish, shrimp is mashed and mixed with shrimp paste and herbs, rolled into small balls, coated with egg and better then deep fried to golden. The stuffed bell pepper is made with de-seeded bell pepper that is stuffed with seasoned pork and shrimp, steamed and then wrapped in fried egg net before serving. The stuffed shallot is filled with seasoned grilled catfish that is then coated with egg and deep fried to crispiness. There are also pork floss made from boiled pork and caramelized sugar, sweet stir-fried ray fish where the meat is fluffed and added with sugar, sweet and salty stir-fried turnip and the crispy shrimp-stuffed butterfly pea flowers that are soft on the inside.
