Dragon Sculptures, Kick Boxing And Scrumptious Thai Food - Marco Polo Pearl Continental Celebrates "Thai Food Festival"
With the entertainment landscape of Pakistan changing within the past few years consequently rendering the entertainment seekers open to new concepts and choices available. The same applies to the food business fraternity as well, the more the merrier theory clearly seems to work best on this sector of entertainment with new experiments opening around town and amazingly each one creating a niche for itself in the market. Despite possessing a large variety of top of the line desi cuisine restaurants, international cuisines like Italian, Thai, and Spanish etc have also played its part well on the taste buds of the foodies. Identifying the same lines, recently Pearl Continental Hotel in Karachi (P.C) organized “Thai Food Festival” to celebrate the flavors, which was held inside Marco Polo from 26th September till 28th September 2012.
The team of FCPK was more than happy to be a part of this promisingly spectacular event. Ms. Anita Sattar (P.R & Marketing Head, PC Karachi) alongside other corporate personnel’s welcomed all guests with open arms. The whole place was decorated with Thailand’s mesmerizing culture including sculptures of dragons, while Thai music created a strong setting in the background. The whole vicinity was dripping with their signature red handicrafts and portraits adding quite a bit to the artistic setting. Overall, the organizers did a splendid job in maintaining the impression of an authentic Thai food restaurant. The event was inaugurated by Mr. Wichai (Council General of Thailand), Chief Guest Mr. Mirza Ikhtiar Baig (Federal Advisor on Textiles).
Amongstthe aromatic and flavorsome cuisines that were served were Rad Na rice noodles, variations in Soups, Sea food, prawns and much more including yummy desserts. All the food items were appetizingly presented and well organized. The food tasted as scrumptious as anticipated. Alongside the food scene, the guests were entertained with a short sequence of performances which included Thai cultural dance and a demonstration of Thai Kick Boxing, which the guests thoroughly enjoyed. To cover the event media representatives from Samma T.V, News 1 and FM 107 were also present. The whole festival was handled brilliantly with no dissatisfaction from the start to finish.
It was a brilliant effort put together by Pearl Continentals Management and we hope they continue this tradition of celebrating the heritage behind the food as it not only supports the food industry sink its roots deeper but also helps us as consumers relish the food more because we now understand the savory flavor the way it’s intended to be enjoyed.
