Held under the theme, "Deliciousness, The Tastiest Frontier", this is one of Central Embassy's biggest food festivals that gives foodies a good chance to indulge in sumptuous dishes at 40 famous restaurants and cafes that serve various cuisines including Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French and Italian.

They will also enjoy special dishes available exclusively for this event. They include the signature "Cacao Story" chocolate menu made from Chiang Mai chocolate and artistically decorated by chef Dej at Kyo Bar by Dej Kewkacha, "Rainbow Roll" featuring fresh salmon and avocado at Muteki by Mugendai, and the flower-inspired "Baby Blossom Cookie" at Sretsis Parlour.

For every 500 baht spent at participating restaurants, diners will have a chance to win a five-course Meat Journey with a complimentary drink for two, worth 6,580 baht, at Park Hyatt Bangkok Hotel, located on top of the shopping mall.
