You might have already rung in 2017 with fireworks on December 31st, or by taking part in a dragon dance for Chinese New Year, but the best is yet to come.
Traditionally celebrated for three consecutive days, ‘Songkran’ or Thai New Year is said to be the grandest festival of them all, and you can celebrate in style this year at Saba, who will be offering a dedicated Thai New Year Menu created by head chef Tao, from Thursday 13th April – Monday 17th April.
The four-person menu (€38.95 pp) will include delicious starters such as Thod Man Pla, minced fish cakes with green beans in a red curry paste and kaffir lime leaves, with Thai sweet basil.
Main courses include Goong Maeman Kratiem Prik Thai, stir fried blue river prawns with garlic, pepper and broccoli, a recipe handed down to Tao from his mum.
The Thai New Year menu, created by head chef Taweesak Trakoolwattana, stays true to the values of Thai New Year, a celebration of family and sharing with a focus on traditional Thai dishes using fresh, healthy ingredients and rich authentic flavours.
Paul Cadden, owner of Saba said: “We are delighted to be running our dedicated Thai New Year menu. It is a special time in the Thai calendar for all our team who love to share their own experiences of Thai New Year and the dishes they enjoy with our customers. The sharing menu, which has been created as a celebration of family and friendship, will be available in our Clarendon Street and Baggot Street restaurants, as well as in Saba To Go Rathmines, Windy Arbour and our newly opened Saba To Go in Deansgrange.”
