The launch ceremony for the campaign was inaugurated today by H.E. Ms. Pattarat Hongtong, Ambassador of Thailand to India at Whiz Café by MQDC India. Commenting on the event, she said, “I am more than delighted to be able to share the ‘Namaste Thai Flavours 2021’ campaign that truly celebrates the rich and powerful cultures of both countries through a personal, yet influential, aspect such as food. We are aware of the huge number of people who are Thai food enthusiasts in India and we hope that we are able to reach as many food and culture connoisseurs as possible through the piquant flavours presented at Whiz Café by the Chef of the Ambassador. Despite having promoted Thai cuisine in various channels in the past, this is the first-of-its-kind initiated by the Royal Thai Embassy and we hope to be able to continue this campaign in the years to come.”
In order to celebrate the union of the two rich cultures, MQDC India will be serving especially curated Thai menu for a limited period at its first Indian food venture, Whiz Café, located in G.K.-2. Each dish will be prepared by the Chef of the Thai Ambassador and will be served as complimentary lunch to the guests and customers at the café on 11th September, 17th September, 24th September and 1st October.
On the occasion, Ms. Chulamas Jitpatima, Country Director, MQDC India, said, “I am immensely thrilled and extremely grateful to be launching this new campaign, in association with The Royal Thai Embassy and MQDC India. MQDC has always taken pride in its Thai cultural roots and legacy and we are very excited and well prepared with all the right safety precautions just as before, to share the burst of authentic flavours from Thailand with our Indian patrons.”
