Taste the flavors of Thailand as Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu Resort reopens its signature Thai restaurant — Benjarong Mactan.
Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu brings its renowned Thai dining concept for Cebuanos to experience an authentic Thai cuisine feast.
After two years of temporary closure, the world-class resort welcomes you back to the restaurant’s exuding warm ambiance that speaks of Thai spices and aroma.
Preserving their distinct authentic Thai taste and flavors, Dusit Thani Mactan’s Thai Chef Thanaphon “Than” Jeenphuad assures guests of appetizing Thai food at the Benjarong Mactan.
With its all imported ingredients, Benjarong Mactan will give you a classic dining experience that will take you on a culinary adventure in Thailand.
“We serve only using Thai ingredients, most of the herbs and spices, we bring it from Thailand,” Chef Than said.
With the reopening of Benjarong Mactan, Dusit Thani Mactan General Manager Michael Kempf said that the locals can definitely expect the most authentic Thai cuisine within the region. Being in Dusit Thani Mactan also allows visitors to relax and enjoy the tropical escape of Mactan, Cebu with breathtaking views from the restaurant.
“We set very high expectations for the team, for myself, and for the property. It is a brand, it’s Benjarong, we have outlets in Manila which is a very well-run Benjarong as well. We have one in Davao, and we will be the third one in the country, the cuisine itself must be very authentic, we wanna be the number one in the region here, we definitely have a high quality, that’s why we brought back our Thai chef, chef Than, who has opened Benjarong Mactan in 2019,” Kempf said.
Benjarong Mactan is located on the second floor of the hotel’s Mactan wing which offers a majestic view of the ocean.
You get to choose from their different authentic Thai food selections that include appetizers, salad, soup, main course, seafood, Thai curry, and desserts.
“We are definitely targeting to approach the locals in the Cebu provinces and in the Mactan island to make sure that we are giving this authentic Thai cuisine. There is already a demand in the market when it comes to Thai food but many do not know yet that the Benjarong Mactan is the only authentic Thai cuisine in Cebu and we are targeting to have a big demand in Benjarong,” Kempf added.
Try Benjarong Mactan’s best-sellers such as Pad Thai, a thin egg omelet wrapped over a plate of Thai noodles that is served with tiger prawns. Bean sprouts, chili flakes, calamansi, and crushed toasted peanuts are offered on the side as topping on your Pad Thai.
Another must-try is their Kai Pad Med Mamuang or a Thai-style sweet and sour chicken placed in capsicum in a sweet potato basket.
