CAIRO, EGYPT--(Marketwire - Oct 28, 2011) - There's something cooking in the kitchen at the JW Marriott Hotel Cairo, and her name is Thanya Lak Thogdaeng. The new Thai chef at the hotel's Lemongrass restaurant brings her unique, tasty dishes to this hotel near Cairo Airport, a long way from her mother's kitchen, where she grew up cooking for friends and family.

Chef Thogdaeng employs her "secret way to cook," paying attention to the smallest details and using unconventional methods to bring out the flavors and complexities in even the simplest dishes.

Lemongrass sets itself apart from other restaurants in Cairo, Egypt with mouthwatering dishes from Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mainland China. On a menu that includes dim sum, salads, soups and signature juice blends, Chef Thogdaeng has introduced exotic Thai flavors, including her must-try Green Papaya and mouthwatering desserts.

Once you've made your way through the delicious menu at Lemongrass, our Cairo International Convention Center hotel offers 11 additional dining choices, with something to please every palate. Italian pizza and pasta, with a side of live entertainment, can be enjoyed at Cucina, while our Sushi Bar serves sushi, sashimi and maki with breathtaking panoramic views of the golf course and lakes. At JW's Steakhouse, the finest certified Australian beef is accompanied by delicious sides and salads, and at Cactus Bar, snooker, billiards and sports are complemented by bar favorites including nachos, buffalo wings, sandwiches and burgers. For something sweet or a coffee, stop into La Patisserie, and in summer, be sure to sample fresh juices and barbecue at the outdoor Lake Promenade.
