For now, their non-traditional Thai cuisine is only available for delivery
The balance between different tastes is what makes a certain dish stand out and make you want more. Thai cuisine meets these criteria – perfectly harmonizing sweet, sour, salty and spicy flavors. And no wonder he made a mark all over the world.
Celebrity chef and restaurateur Rob Pengson’s experience in France is proof that Thai cuisine is welcomed in a country considered one of the culinary capitals of the world. “I was in Paris once and we ate in a Thai restaurant. It was the most complete restaurant on the whole street. And I was like, what’s going on? It was surprising because it was Asian food but super popular. And then I could hear these children leaving yum yum, yum yum,», He said.
Later, Chief Rob discovered that Yum means delicious in French. And as they say, children never lie. The word stuck in his mind that every time he ate in a Thai restaurant, he said “yum, yum, yum”. And that’s also why he named his new online Thai food delivery business Miam Miam Thai Chiken. “It sounds Thai, it’s catchy and in a way we want to make it for the international palate,” said Chef Rob.
When we talk about Thai food, most of us think of their popular pad thai noodle dish. But, there are more interesting dishes that we can savor from this Southeast Asian cuisine. Take it from the range of Miam Miam, from their chicken tenders gay tod and satay.
Their version of those street food chicken wings gay tod has a crunchy and chewy skin that complements the tender, juicy and flavorful flesh. Its taste increases when dipped in their concoction of sweet chili and sweet vinegar.
On the other hand, the aroma alone of their grilled chicken satay gives a hint of its goodness. Enriched with a delicate blend of curry spices and secret herbs, its tender meat is truly tasty, especially when covered in its thick peanut sauce.
However, the restaurateur with the help of his team decided to be more creative, so they also offer non-traditional Thai cuisine. For example, they have herbal, like pasta and meatless noodles that cater to health-conscious Filipino customers. Even so, the authentic balance of Thai tastes is still present, such as the sweetness and spiciness of gong bao sauce and the sweetness, acidity and nutty taste of Pad Thai.
Another dish that carries the DNA of Thai cuisine while promoting Pinoy’s sweet preference is their bagoong rice. Its sweetness, although light, surpasses the salinity of the bagoong and the acidity of finely sliced green mango.
The other essential dishes are appetizers som tam and kroupuk. The first is a dip of crispy grated fresh green papaya salad in a tangy and spicy dressing while the second is a snack of crackling shrimp sprinkled with different spices and herbs. the kroupuk is so addicting that they plan to make the crackers available in the bucket.
Plus, the meal wouldn’t be complete without iconic Thai drinks like Thai milk tea, iced tea, and ginger tea. The lightly sweetened drinks are refreshing, perfect to end a full Thai meal course.
The recipes were well prepared by Chef Rob’s Aleanza team, who were up for the challenge of creating great food, especially for delivery. Prepared by professional chefs in accordance with sanitary protocols, Thai dishes, which also come in a choice of plates, are well packaged in paper containers. The packaging may look ordinary, but when you open it you will be surprised at how attractive the presentation is, even though the colors are limited.
Miam Miam, is just one of the many brands that Aleanza’s cloud kitchen is developing. Next is their Mission Wings Latin American cuisine, which boasts of its chicken wings with a touch of kare-kare flavors. “Although we anchor our food to where it comes from, we always want to put something local, something Filipino,” explained Chef Rob.
