Som Tam by Benjarong, Dusit Thani Manila
Som Tam | Benjarong, Dusit Thani Manila

Som Tam (Thai Papaya Salad) - Freshly shredded green papaya is mixed with julienned carrots, bell peppers, and string beans. It has a well-balanced saltiness from the fish sauce, sweetness from palm sugar, and tartness from the freshly squeezed lime. Its refreshing taste will surely whet your appetite.

Phad Thai by Benjarong, Dusit Thani Manila
Pad Thai | Benjarong, Dusit Thani Manila

Phad Thai - This Thai noodle dish is one of the most iconic dishes of Thailand. This is quite a generous serving that is good for two to three persons. Benjarong serves Phad Thai Gung Sod which is the variety with prawns. If you prefer yours without prawns, you can request a version with chicken or tofu.

I-Tim Ma Prao by Benjarong Thai Restaurant at Dusit Thani Manila

I-Tim Ma Prao (Young Coconut Sherbet) - This is a classic Thai dessert that is usually served in a coconut shell. Here at Benjarong, this dessert is served in coconut shell-shaped chocolate.
