Next Meetup

The Traveller's Lunchbox, Thailand
Our national culinary destination for November will be Thailand and the sophisticated "Tamarind", located at Avdi Square in the heart of Metaxourgeio, Why is Tamarind one of the most elegant restaurants in its class? Because of the authentic and rich in contrast Thai dishes, the characteristic oriental aromas and colors, its signature cocktails with an Asian aroma and the airy and exotic decoration. Tamarind's Greek-Thai chef executive, Ben Proviso, maps through his dishes a trip to his local cuisine, the old Kingdom of Siam and seeks to introduce us to authentic Thai cuisine and to the tradition of Thailand in general. In its menu you will find plenty of aromatic soups (such as "Rainforest" or "Floating Market"), many famous traditional recipes (and vegetarian variants) served in restaurants. In addition, there is a special category in the menu for those who love curry. Tamarind took its name from the red tree Tamarintos, an impressive sculpture which dominates the site. Its branches are full of greeting cards because ... "according to tradition, if you dig a hole in its trunk, whisper your secret, you hang on your branches your wish and the wind takes it away your wish will come true. Every corner of the restaurant, especially the “Tree House”, is hospitable and revives the country's long history, seasons with prominent kings, legendary explorers and caravans carrying exotic goods, leaving a rich aroma of spices in their passage. We have booked a table for a certain number of people, depending on attendance, so priority will be given to those who declare "YES" in the event and come to Tamarind on time.
