It is no secret that Thai cuisine is my ultimate favorite. I love the medley of hot, sweet and sour, and we even have a go at cooking Thai at home several times a week.

While many places serve Thai cuisine in the UAE, a few recipes get lost in translation when more commercial, creamy sauces are used. As a true-blue Thai cuisine lover, I crave the spicy kick of Bangkok streets, and my culinary reminiscing lead me to try out the Thai Street Food Festival at The Backyard (Steigenberger Hotel, Business Bay – Dubai).

The Backyard’s Thai Street Food Festival will run on 3 consecutive Saturdays from 24th February through to 10th March, and will feature live cooking stations featuring the finest from Bangkok street-food, along with beverages, Thai music, karaoke and more.
