Susana Joa, owner of Chinois, Casa de Campo’s Chinese and sushi restaurant located in the Plaza Portofino of the Casa de Campo Marina, is hosting a Noche de Comida Tailandesa this Friday the 18th of September, from 7pm. This will be a one night only event, and will be a way to provide us residents and villa owners with a little taste of Thailand.
This great idea came into being, following Susana’s recent trip to Thailand – having enjoyed many a fantastic Thai dish during her holiday, she returned with a new passion for Thai food. And so after a little nudging (teeny tiny really) from your very own Casa de Campo Living team, she took the initiative and decided to make it happen!
The concept is simple; a one night only special prix fix 8 course tasting menu at a price of around RD$700.00 (tax included) – not too shabby, especially considering that Thai food, in the Dominican Republic is extremely hard (if not impossible) to come by. As you can imagine, we are especially excited about a little hot Pad Thai!
In order to escape from the same dull-drum of daily cuisine, we MUST SUPPORT this event! Do your part by attending, spreading the word, leaving a comment, joining the facebook event and of course preparing your appetite!
A few lucky members of the Casa de Campo Living team were lucky invited to the pre-event tasting and so here’s a copy of the menu as we know it and a few photos of each dish – to really whet your appetite!
