Thai-in Mookata Kepong
Today, I am happy to share with you my recent dining experience at a ‘Thai SELECT Casual’ Award 2022 winning restaurant - Thai-in Mookata Kepong. You may wonder what is Thai SELECT, in fact it is a certification awarded by Thailand’s Department of International Trade promotion. It certifies the food, hospitality and atmosphere of restaurants, ensuring the preparation of an authentic Thai experience. Just like a Michelin star but in the Thai version.
There are strict guidelines to be followed to be recognized by Thai SELECT, and there are four categories of certification: Signature, Classic, Casual and Unique. Thai SELECT Signature is granted to restaurants that serve authentic Thai food with a taste of premium quality, refined decoration and excellent service, while Thai SELECT Classic is awarded to Thai Restaurants of excellent quality. Restaurants with Thai SELECT Casual offer good quality Thai food, but have limited services, while Thai SELECT Unique restaurants are for selected restaurants within Thailand that offer local specialities. There is also Thai SELECT Products, which are Thai food products made the traditional way.
