Exploring Northern Thailand through Chiang Mai’s cuisine

Mango Tree’s Chiang Mai menu will be available starting October 15.  

Thailand has four major regions—the north, northeast, central, and south. Each region has its own unique cuisine that infuses a balance of sweet, sour, spicy, and salty flavors in each dish.

Northern Thai cuisine is especially known for its use of aromatic ingredients and bold flavors including the use of fermented ingredients and dry heat cooking methods.

Mango Tree’s Chiang Mai dishes are inspired by a recent trip the chefs took to Thailand. The chefs of both Mango Tree Philippines and Mango Tree global teams were invited to learn about Northern Thailand culture and cuisine by immersing with the locals and exploring traditional cuisine with Northern Hill tribes.

They did this with culinary masters Chef Kannika Tassanaprasit, an Iron Chef Thailand challenger, and Chef Phanuphon “Black” Bulsuwan.
