A celebration of Latin food, music and people.
This Saturday, Jun 4, 12-5pm, sees the third hosting of Bangkok's Latin Food Festival, a celebration of Latin cuisine, music and people.
Hosted by much-loved Thai-Venezuelan artisanal coffee roasters Ceresia in Sala Daeng, the festival promises lots of rare-find Latin American meals prepared by experienced chefs from Spain, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, including familiar faces from Taburete and El Mariachi Tacqueria.
Some rare dishes we're looking forward to include:
Montadito de pringa—This Andalusian specialty from Spain consists of slow-cooked beef or pork served sandwich-style in crusty bread.
Pabellon—A traditional Venezuelan dish of steamed fried rice and stewed black beans, served with shredded beef. Have it with a side of fried plantain.
Tortillas de Verde—This Ecuadorian favorite sees green plantain patties stuffed with gooey cheese.
Torta Tres Leches—Simply translated as "three milks bread," this dessert sees evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream piled atop butter cake. Decadent.
Causa Rellena—This cake-shaped dish from a Peruvian chef sees mashed potato layered with chicken, bacon and avocado, topped in Huancaína sauce.
Hungry? You should be. Entry is free, with coffee served from 9am.
