On this festive occasion, the menu at VIU is embellished with modern interpretations of classic Thai dishes and street food traditions with highlight dishes including: lotus leaf miang of grilled river prawns; blue swimmer crab with pickled garlic and peanuts with crunchy rice cakes; rich red curry of grilled duck breast with sour tomatoes and holy basil; and smoked wagyu beef brisket with tamarind and dried prawn dipping sauce.

The classic Royal Thai summertime dish of rice soaked in chilled, jasmine-scented water takes center stage at a dedicated Khao Chae trolley. A large selection of side dishes to be enjoyed with the Khao Chae includes stuffed sweet peppers, kapi (shrimp paste) balls, shredded sweetened meat, crispy sesame-coated fish, and sweet pickled Chinese turnips.

Enhancing the authentic experience of celebrations is a Thai khim musical performance on the 14th of April and traditional hand garland display and demonstrations throughout the three days.
