As you probably know by now, US President Obama was in Bangkok at the weekend. There were two things about his trip that I was interested in the most. The tourist attraction that he visited (Wat Pho) and the food that he ate. The president actually told a reporter that he liked Thai food and that he was looking forward to the banquet. As I was interested about what was on the menu at Government House, I tweeted to my followers to see if any of them were at the banquet. I sent out a request for a photo of the menu.
My request was answered by @MaryUngrangsee who tweeted this picture of the menu. The highlights of the meal include som tam with grilled chicken, green beef curry and grilled river prawn. The very knowledgeable @SheSimmers has already blogged in detail about the food on this menu so check out her comments here. After I re-tweeted this menu, I got a tweet from @Gail_Karn who works at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. She proudly said that the menu was created by their Executive Thai Chef Vichit.
