This week, Simply Asia, the sensational Thai restaurant group, is giving away one R500 voucher to any of their branches. They’ve also shared some useful tips on how to encourage your kids to try new flavours.
Not just for adult palates, Simply Asia has a great variety of milder dishes that include veggies and protein. According to Simply Asia, popular kids’ dishes include Ba-Mee Phad Sie-Eiuy(505), which consists of crunchy cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and spinach stir-fried with egg, fried garlic and yellow noodles, with chicken or beef, in a mix of dark sweet soya and stir-fry sauces.
The 314 dish, or Khao Phad Thai (Thai fried rice) is a dish of Jasmine rice fried with onions, tomatoes, spring onions and egg in a stir-fry sauce, while the chicken satay (104) and sweet corn cakes (103) are popular too.
Tips to encourage kids to try new flavours
1. Keep it fun This is easy to do when the whole family is sharing several dishes. You can also make tongue twisters out of the Thai names for dishes.
2. Offer them bites of your food. Once again, the Thai concept of shared meals makes it easier for picky eaters to sample what mom and dad are having, especially if they look like they¹re really enjoying it.
3 Even if you are getting take-aways, you can add a sense of fun to the occasion. Once you get home, spread a blanket on the lounge floor and have an indoor Thai picnic. Switch off the TV and enjoy sharing different dishes. Your child will be more open to new things if they¹re done with a sense of adventure.
