Bangkok Jam Thai’Rrific Food Fest 2015!

สวัสดี ค่ะ! (Sawasdee Kha!)

So much fun attending with friends to a Thai Street Food Carnival - Thai’Rrific Food Fest, hosted by Bangkok Jam, a familiar name to many Singaporeans! Held at their Marina Square outlet on 22 October 2015, the event aims to celebrate the diversity of Thai street food you can find at the streets and markets of Bangkok.



Photobooth made using a real Tuk Tuk (Auto rickshaw), Bangkok's iconic land transportation!




Interested parties had to purchase tickets at $15 nett per set with food and drinks coupons! Each set of ticket entitles the guest to one chance at their lucky draw, and the grand prize receives a complimentary room for 2 nights at Four Points by Sheraton, Bangkok! Customers also stand a chance to win Marina Square vouchers at the event, which can be used at all participating stores at Marina Square!


Beautiful Bangkok Jam merchandise were also available for purchase at the event.


The Lost Box, an up-and-coming acoustic local band, put up a great live performance, singing some hit songs!


At the event, spearheaded by Chef De Cuisine, Thongloy Wilaiwan, Bangkok Jam re-creates iconic street food items from the City of Angels. These items include, Kuey Teow Reua, Thai style dried Boat Noodles made famous by the boat noodles shops at Victory Monument, and Khanom Buang, crispy Thai crepes from the floating markets of Bangkok!

From the streets of Chatuchak, they have re-created Ai Tim Ma Praw (Coconut Shell Ice Cream), with toppings distinctively Thai, such as roasted peanuts, dried mango, jackfruit slices, lord chong (green chendol stripes), and a Singaporean favourite; nata de coco.

Other street food at the event are popular dishes such as Tod Man Pla (Thai Fish Cakes), Peek Gai Tod (Fried Chicken Mid Joints with Thai Fish Sauce Marinade), and Porpiah Tod (Deep-fried Spring Rolls). Bangkok Jam Thai Chefs also demonstrated the skill and mastery of making the signature Spicy Mango and Papaya Salads at the live station.



Kuey Teow Reua (Boat Noodles from Victory Monument) with choice of Pork or Beef. I picked Beef Boat Noodle and its good! =)





Spicy Mango Salad is so spicy i had to stop at my second mouth.. But my dear friend ate it all, saying it was very appetising!! Glad she enjoyed the Salad! =)




Tod Man Pla (Thai Fish Cakes) was nice while the Chicken was alright..


I do like their Porpiah Tod (Deep-fried Spring Rolls)..


With Jasmine, Jessie, Shu Qing, and Linda! =)


Always grateful to have her, dear Jessie! =)




My favourite item among all is none other than their Ai Tim Ma Praw (Coconut Ice Cream from Chatuchak Market)! Lightly sweet and yummy!!! Reminds me of the wonderful shopping experience at Chatuchak Market years back.. =)




Interesting Khanom Buang (Crepes from the Floating Markets).. not to my liking though..


Always enjoy having Jasmine with us, =)


Their Butterfly Pea Lime drink was nice!!



Pretty girlfriend, YQ arrived and i filled her tummy with abit of food and drinks before we head over to elsewhere. This girl enjoys Tiger!


Thai style iced popsicle-making machine produces sweet, thirst quenching ice popsicles (a childhood memory of many Thai natives). Selection consists of Thai Iced Milk Tea, Green Apple and Rose Bandung for $1 each.


I had Green Apple while she had Ice Milk Tea Iced Popsicles!


What a Thai’Rrific experience we had!!! THANK YOU BANGKOK JAM & CREATIVE EATERIES! Can we have more of such fun feast in Singapore? =D
