Siam Takashimaya, Bangkok’s only Japanese department store, and Sooksiam have joined up to launch “Zaab Sugoi Thai-Japan Food and Cultural Fair” – a special food and culture festival to mark their second anniversary.

Tourism Authority of Thailand governor Yuthasak Supasorn and Shigeki Kobayashi, counsellor and director of the Japan Information Service from the Japanese embassy presided over the fair’s lift-off on Wednesday.

The festival offers a happy, delicious, “sugoi” or amazing culinary journey with delights like somtam with wasabi-fermented squid, grilled pork onigiri with Isaan chilli paste and green curry ramen to name a few.

Visitors will also get to watch well-known chef Yingsak Jonglertjesdawong put together a “Thai-Japanese chilli paste set”, a 3D origami paper-folding workshop by Thailand’s top origami artist Ekkasit Khemnguad, a fish-filleting show by Masa Sushi, as well as a mochi-making demonstration by a Japanese chef to name a few.

Shoppers can also make the most of the “shoot and share” contest or just pick up hugely discounted products such as a 100g Wagyu ribeye steak for just Bt700, a salmon don for Bt499 or a lemon cheese tart for Bt95 among others.

The event runs until November 22 at the ground floor of Siam Takashimaya department store and Sooksiam in Bangkok’s iconic shopping destination Iconsiam.
