Thai Restaurant Week Comes to Los Angeles
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) will be celebrating Songkran Festival marking the Thai New Year, with Thai Restaurant Week in Los Angeles and New York April 11-17, 2016. Songkran (April 13-15), the most famous festival in Thailand, is in keeping with the Buddhist/Hindu solar calendar and it signifies when the sun enters the sign of Aries the Ram.
In honor of Songkran nineteen restaurants in Los Angeles, including Ayara Thai Cuisine, Jitlada, Night+Market, and twenty restaurants in New York will be offering special dishes and/or pre-fix menus throughout the week, with TAT holding kick-off events in both markets. During the week-long celebration guests who visit Ayara Thai Cuisine can enjoy Khao Kluk Kapi, a special Songkran dish; a Fermented Shrimp Paste Fried Rice with sweet pork belly, egg omelet, crispy dried shrimp, and other assorted toppings; paired with a side of refreshing gourd soup for $15.00
