Royal Flavours with Cooling Khao Chae Chaowang at Up Above Restaurant

Bangkok--3 Mar--The Okura Prestige Bangkok
A traditional dish with regal origins is the perfect way
to beat the April heat. Khao Chae Chaowang—Chaowang meaning 'dish from the
palace’ because it was a favourite of royalty—comprises rice steeped in iced
jasmine-scented water accompanied by a selection of side dishes and zesty
pastes. Literally meaning 'soaked rice’, when Khao Chae became popular in
Thailand almost 200 years ago, the country had no ice so the water in which it
was served was chilled using earthenware jars kept in the shade and often
partially buried in the cool earth. The popular summer dish is served with
shredded sweet pork, shredded sweet beef, fried fish with shrimp paste balls,
and sweet bell peppers stuffed with pork and encased in an egg wrap. These are
first steamed and then fried to a beautiful consistency before being allowed to
cool. Other condiments include fried shallots with fish ball and stir-fried
sweet pickled Chinese turnips with egg. Fragrant, full of flavour and served on
beautiful Celadon Chinaware, Khao Chae offers a refreshing treat on a hot day.
Khao Chae is available daily from 1 - 30 April 2020, 12:00
– 17:00 at Up & Above Restaurant. Priced at Baht 490++.

Up & Above Restaurant is located on the 24thfloor of The Okura Prestige Bangkok. For information and reservations, please contact 02 687 9000, or email, or book on our website

Price is
subject to 10% service charge and 7% government tax.
