S&P has some delightful food ideas and gifts available this holiday season in Thailand. The holiday season in Thailand is an ongoing international celebration that begins in November with Loy Kratong and Thanksgiving, takes us to Christmas and the Western New Year in December, the Chinese New Year in February and extends through April with Songkran, which is the Thai New Year.
Most people in Thailand are familiar with the iconic red, white and brown logo of S& P Company and know that S&P is a large Thai Company that operates numerous bakeries and restaurants in Thailand and abroad. What people may not be aware of, is that S&P also operates the upscale Vanilla restaurants and brasseries that are popping up all over Bangkok. This holiday season S&P offers a variety of treats to be found at all of these locations.
S&P Bakeries are famous for their cakes and cookies and they have lots of good deals on their delectable cookies which can be purchased in festive holiday tins which make for perfect gifts. Recommended are the Assorted Danish Butter Cookies (165Baht-240Baht) which come in several sizes, and give you several packaging options. All come with a big red bow and the cookies inside are always a treat. Another hit at S&P bakery is Mix and Match Cookies (120Baht-175Baht) that come in a festive gift bag or box. Flavors to choose from include the original Butter Cookies, the Coffee Cookies, the Milk Cookies, or the Pandan Cookies.
The Vanilla Restaurant and Brasserie located at Paragon is pulling out all the stops and offers a variety of specials including a “Free Box of Holiday Cookies” for every 1500Baht spent at the restaurant. This is easy to do as the restaurant has a full menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and pastas along with their famous crepes, pastries and ice creams. Be sure to try the Seafood Crepe with White Wine & Cream Sauce (390Baht) or the Spinach and Mozzarella Crepe (260Baht). Other notable dishes include the Macadamia Nut Frappe (170Baht) and the Berry Crumble Cheesecake (95Baht).
Another great gift idea being offered by Vanilla is the Large Box of Brownies (480Baht) which includes 8 gigantic rich and delicious fudge brownies that they package up for you in a nice gift box. Vanilla has also introduced a line of Holiday Cocktails and Beers including the St. Louis Premium Peach, Raspberry, or Cherry Beer priced at 220Baht each. The Holiday Cocktails are priced at 150Baht for the Kahlua Ice and 140Baht for the Citrus Mint, the Apple Ginger, the Black Cherry Rum, the Grape Coulis or the Orange Cointreau.
Whether you want to make the holiday season a bit sweeter with a food gift for a loved one from S&P Bakery, or want to treat yourself to a good meal and some holiday cocktails at Vanilla Restaurant; make sure that S&P is at the top of your list. Also, be on the lookout for S&P’s famous holiday “Moon Cakes” which will soon become available for Chinese New Year and can be picked up at the store locations or can be delivered by calling 1344 or visiting their website at snpfood.com.
