15 May 2019 - Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach recently invited its media colleagues to The Andaman Kitchen, its all-day dining restaurant, for the latest edition of its Media Mixer Party series.
Media Mixer Party Volume II allowed attendees to sample the resort’s new “Long Chim” Thai food concept, which features authentic dishes in a minimalist canapé style. A new series of signature cocktails was revealed and the resort also introduced its “No Plastic Straws” initiative.
The event, which was hosted in the restaurant and on its alfresco lawn overlooking Nai Yang Beach, included a tasting session featuring culinary creations from the resort’s Executive Sous Chef, Worakant Singha, and Thai Sous Chef, Ekarat Rattiso.
“This excellent event allowed us to demonstrate our latest innovations, build stronger relationships with our friends in the media, and give them great experiences. After the success of Media Mixer Party Volume I at Big Fish Restaurant and Bar, we were delighted to demonstrate the skills of our team at The Andaman Kitchen,” said Gerd Kotlorz, General Manger, Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach.
Every dish on the Long Chim menu features locally sourced ingredients, including Phuket crab curry omelet, the resort’s signature breakfast dish, as well as moo hong (southern Thai pork belly stew), poh pia sod (fresh spring rolls), gaeng keow wan goong (green curry with prawns), mussaman nuea (mussaman curry with beef) and a classic Thai dessert. New signature cocktails were also revealed by three bartenders, who told guests fun stories about their origins and ingredients.
The No Plastic Straws project is one of many environmental initiatives launched by Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach. The resort is continuously devising new ways to reuse and recycle, and plans to further reduce its plastic and energy use in future, including in its back office.
Media Mixer Volume II provided another example of the resort’s creative meeting concepts, which can be adapted to suit any kind of event.
