Remember the amazing flavours that tickled your taste buds on the last holiday to Singapore? It's those tiny street food parlours that served up the most delicious dishes, all prepared with all kinds of exotic elements and the freshest ingredients. Go down memory lane and revisit those trips at the Sam Yan Monday Market at Mekong, Anantara Dubai The Palm.
Filling the air with scents of lemongrass, basil, coconut and more, Sam Yan Monday Market will present you with a feast for the senses. Embrace the aromatic fusion of Asian cuisine as you stroll from stall to stall and enjoy the balmy nights on Mekong's outdoor terrace in a rickshaw overlooking the skyline of Dubai.
In true hawker market style, sample a range of authentic, creative Asian dishes from over 14 market stalls, featuring favourites from marinated satay and flavourful Tom Yum broths, to succulently spiced seafood and taste bud-tingling curries. The signature egg custard dessert, Khanom Mo Kaeng, meaning 'dessert made in a curry pot', is the perfect end to a cultural dining experience.
If the next Far East getaway is not marked on your calendar yet, you should at least take the short trip to the Palm to indulge in the authentic fare Mekong has to offer.
