Mango Tree Participates in Washington, DC Restaurant Week, August 15-21, 2016

DC Summer Restaurant Week is back and Mango Tree is serving up fresh Thai food prepared by true Thailand trained chefs. Mango Tree, created by renowned Thai cookbook author and cooking show host Pitaya Phanphensophon, takes the raw ingredients found in regional Thai cuisine and executes them through a renewed approach, where Mango Tree’s chefs deliver a farm-to-wok dining experience that showcases Thai cuisine in a pure and tasteful version of its fresh and exotic flavors.

The menu revolves around authentic recipes and preparations which make up the underlying culture of the Mango Tree experience. From small plate appetizers and entrées, to rice and noodle dishes, its core ingredients utilize free-range chicken, pasture raised pork, grass fed beef, wild caught fish, and fresh vegetables - only the finest ingredients are used. “Nothing beats the flavor and quality of fresh ingredients, and they are absolutely necessary for any good Thai dish,” explained Trevor MacKenzie, Managing Director, Mango Tree Restaurants Worldwide. “An ideal Thai meal balances spicy, sour, salty, sweet, bitter and hot sensations, while also pleasing the palate, nose and eye.”

For $35, dinner guests can enjoy a three-course prix fixe dinner menu, which includes an amuse bouche, selected by the chef for its refined and refreshing qualities. Indulge Salmon Larb, fresh salmon cured in isaan tamarind dressing, shallots, mint and topped with ground roasted rice; Roasted Brussels, which is mixed with sweet sticky pork belly and Thai coconut sauce; Char-Grilled Chicken Satay, juicy strips of chicken breast served with a chunky peanut dipping sauce and pickled cucumbers. For the second course, guests can enjoy Braised Beef Green Curry, made from green chilli paste, fresh basil and coconut milk and served with roti bread; Thai Crab Fried Rice, served with jumbo lump crab meat and edamame beans to add texture; Sweet Tamarind Crispy Fish, with a sweet and sour tamarind sauce showcases Thai cuisine by balancing its multidimensional flavors; or Pad Thai, which is probably Thailand’s most famous dish featuring a choice of chicken, shrimp, fresh vegetables or lobster. Lobster Pad Thai, a Mango Tree Signature Dish, featuring a succulent whole lobster is an additional $10. Finish off your meal with one of Mango Tree’s house-made selections of sweets, either the famous Mango Sticky Rice, provides an authentic taste of Southeast Asian tropical comfort food or House-Made Ice Cream Trio, three generous scoops of creamy ice cream to cleanse the palate.
