Organized by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, travel and food fair “Taste.Treats.Travel” is happening at Compass One from 6-9th April from 10am-9:30pm.
There are 5 travel agencies and 2 airlines at the fair and there are Cold Storage vouchers to be claimed with every booking made during the fair.
At the event, you can expect to sample generous portions of 8 different authentic Thai desserts made by food vendors from Thailand. Here are some of them.
Roti Sai Mai is sweet angel hair wrapped in crepe. This is Thai style cotton candy originating from Ayutthaya. This was one of our top favourites from all the samples. Even though I am wearing braces, I still really liked how easy it was to eat.
Gluay Tub, Thai style grilled banana served with some sweet sauce.
Khanom Bueng is Thai crispy crepe. For the Khanom Bueng, they have 2 different versions at the fair with 2 different toppings. One has Palm sugar and Coconut while the other has Egg and Flour.
Khao Kriab Pak Mob/Sakoo Sai Moo. This is made with steamed rice skin dumpling and stuffed sago ball. The rice skin has a really nice texture to it.
Ba Bin is Thai coconut pancake. Personally, I enjoyed this the most.
At the fair, there is a Luk Chup making workshop for kids where they will get to learn how to make this ubiquitous Thai dessert. Luk Chup originates from the ancient palace where it was only made for royalty. The workshop is free and the kids get to be creative with molding and painting their very own Luk Chup.
There are also some snacks for sale as well, as Thai sauce which you can try before buying.
The queues for the food samples can get quite long but treat yourself to a free shoulder neck massage at Divana Spa’s booth. You can also buy their products or book spa sessions at discounted rates there. Divana was actually voted one of Asia’s top wellness spa last year.
There will also be live stage performances to entertain the public.
The performers flew all the way from Thailand to provide these live performances at the fair.
There was also a Muay Thai demonstration by a new gym, Muse Fitness Club.
We also streamed parts of the event live on our Facebook page so check them out.
The Taste Treats Travel events is only going to be at Compass One until 9th April (Sunday) so add it to your weekend plans now!
