Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi Launches Delhi’s Newest Thai Restaurant Neung Roi
Neung Roi celebrates cuisines from across the length and breadth of Thailand and ‘Sum Rap Thai’ or the Thai way of eating
With a menu inspired by cuisines from four distinct culinary traditions of Thailand, Neung Roi promises to offer an unprecedented and amazing dining experience that takes you on a unique voyage through Thailand’s rich gastronomic diversity.
Dishes from four regions of Thailand: The dishes at Neung Roi draw inspiration from the four major culinary traditions of Thailand representing the country’s four regions (Isan or the north east, Lanna or the north, the Isthmus of Kra or South and the Central Plains).
The dishes from Isan are marked by their simplicity but with intense flavors. They are uncompromisingly bold and spicy. Home to the Thai culinary masterpiece Som Tum, the food from the region is hot and uses lime and salt to balance the dishes and is marked by an abundance of salads, dips, broths, grilled and cured meat.
Lanna, which means “One million fields”, refers to the northern region of Thailand. Though the primary seasoning characteristics of Lanna cuisine are hot and salty, the comparative gentleness of the climate has a mitigating effect on the food which primarily uses the ingredients to balance the seasoning. Lanna cuisine is bereft of the oft used ingredients in other Thai regional cuisines like fish sauce, shrimp paste or coconuts.
Cuisine from the Isthmus of Kra or the south of the country is influenced by culinary styles of neighboring Myanmar and Malaysia as also coastal India. The region’s proximity to the sea and flourishing greenery is visible in their cuisine which has abundance of seafood and fresh produce. Availability of many varieties of chilies makes the food of this region the spiciest in Thailand. However, abundant use of coconut cream, along with astringent turmeric, sour fruits and salted relishes render a perfect balance to the dishes.
Cuisine from the Central Plains has a broader range of flavors and dishes compared to other parts of Thailand. Though hot and salty are the dominant tastes, the use of a broader range of seasoning leads to multiple flavors, textures and tastes in a single dish. This has led to the flavors being mild, subtle and balanced. And not only this, even the presentation of the food is intricate and very meticulous.
