We had a satisfying dinner during the launch of the Fusion Thai de Latino Night at Bambooda Restaurant. Located at the ground floor of Roda Al Bustan, this is a newly launched buffet happening every Thursday.

Bambooda primarily serves Thai food and when I found out about the theme, I initially wondered if the Thai and Latin American cuisine was a good combination, but it turned out quite well.

Salads, Finger Food, Tacos, Ceviche
The Thai de Latino Night presentation and set up is like a street market so there are different stations offering small portions of each dish.
There were a selection of delicious fried finger food such as tuna and beef empanadas, crispy squid, and crispy fish fingers. There’s a taco station, a salad bar and

BBQ Station, Main Course Items
There’s a live BBQ station where you can have some prawns, shrimps, chicken and beef skewers grilled.
I especially loved the beef ribs. This was the main highlight during that evening.

Lastly, as I’ve mentioned, the desserts looked really well-displayed and offered a variety of delicacies including mango sticky rice, water chestnuts in coconut milk, fresh fruits, tres leches, and churros.
I had to restrain myself from getting more than one serving from a few of the selected sweets.
