Ancient Thai Culinary Tradition

Ancient Thai Culinary Tradition

During this hot summer weather, the ancient Thai culinary tradition of khao chae is especially welcome. Throughout April, InterContinental Bangkok is serving this chilled delicacy in the serene and elegant setting of Balcony Lounge.


Khao chae first emerged as a royal court dish during the era of King Rama II, and today is a classic favourite. Guests can enjoy this cool, refreshing jasmine rice in fragrant chilled water, served with contrasting savoury condiments including stuffed shallots with fish, shredded sweetened pork and deep-fried shrimp paste ball.
