Luxury hotel Mandarin Oriental’s Melt Café takes you on a journey to the Land Of Smiles to feast on a distinguished cuisine rich in aroma and flavors.
Upon entering Melt Café, I was immediately drawn to the Som Tam Hut Live Station. The quintessential Thai Papaya Salad looks deceivingly plain, however, your taste buds will reveal in the abundance of flavor. The tantalizing medley of hot and sour dressing, crushed peanuts, dried shrimp, chili padi and fish sauce makes for an appetizing and fiery start!
Apart from the Som Tam, other salad options include Spicy Calamari with Cucumber & Tomato and Spicy Prawn Salad seasoned with shallots, lemongrass and coriander. For those who like bursts of natural sweetness and tanginess, don’t forget grab a scoop of the Pomelo Salad.
