Mango King Specials and Combos

Welcome to Mango King, the home of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine in North America. Mango King is so far from home but rest assured that all of its dishes are authentic! You can experience tastes that are only possible by roaming the streets of Bangkok and Hanoi! 

Just to clarify, there is a huge difference between Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Mango King is not a place that blends both worlds into one place for original recipes. It is a meeting place that takes the classic recipes of dishes from both countries and brings them together on the same menu! There are plenty of things to clear up such as the following:

The Difference Between Original and Classic Recipe

First and foremost is clarifying the difference between the original and classic. If a restaurant says that the recipe is original, it means that it is the Chef’s twist on an existing dish. Saying that a dish is classic-style means that it is made using traditional ingredients and cooking methods. 

It is common for authentic oriental restaurants, such as Mango King, to have original sauce to be used as a secret ingredient. However, the recipe for the dish in its entirety is undoubtedly based on the classic style of preparation! 

Thus, Mango King is a restaurant for classic-style Thai and Vietnamese dishes that use secret, original ingredients! It offers Canadian customers the authentic Thai and Viet cuisine while also standing out from its competitors.

The Difference Between Thai and Vietnamese Cuisine

Mango King is not offering Thai and Vietnamese cuisine because they are similar. Far from it. The restaurant wishes to offer the best dishes from two different countries for the people of Canada! 

One question may come to mind: how are these two oriental cuisines different from each other? The answer is a lot more surface-level than one might expect. It is easy to mistake the two for Western citizens but the answer is clear for those who know how to cook.

The first difference is the taste. Vietnamese food tends to have a milder scent and taste than Thai dishes. Hanoi—the capital city of Vietnam—is in the northern part of the country near China and the largest body of Laos. 

Vietnamese dishes tend to have mild tastes for their warm soups similar to Chinese and European cuisines. This can be attributed to the French occupation of the Northern regions of the country. The foreigners brought asparagus, potatoes, and bread.

Meanwhile, Thai dishes tend to use strong flavours such as curry and spicy peppers. They have many similarities with cuisines from neighbouring South Asian countries like India who also uses large amounts of curry powder and other spices. 

The most obvious differences between Thai and Viet dishes involve how spices are used. In Thai cuisine, spices are included in the cooking process. They are embedded in the dish with no means of separating the flavours. Tourists coming to Thailand may assume that ‘Thai people love spicy food’ because of this. Most restaurants, like Mango King, ask the customer about the spice level of their dish when taking orders. 

Vietnam dishes, however, do not include strong flavourings in the recipe. The goal of a Viet chef is to enhance the savoury flavour instead of overpowering it with spicy. They do also use chili like the Thai. However, these flavourings are served as a seasoning that diners have the option of including similarly to salt and pepper. 

Another notable difference is how vegetables are prepared for most dishes. Vietnamese tend to simmer or mildly sautee their vegetables but Thai prefer to thoroughly cook them by stir-frying. The same can be said for spring rolls. Vietnamese tend to serve them cold where the rice wrapper is steamed before the rolls are refrigerated then served cold. Thai prefers to have them deep-fried.

Similarities Between Thai and Vietnamese Cuisine

After clarifying that Thai and Viet cuisines are different from each other, one might wonder why Mango King serves both in the same restaurant. The truth is that both cuisines use very similar ingredients. This is why many people in the West cannot tell them apart. 

First is that both countries have rice which can be served steamed or fried. Both countries also make use of rice noodles. Mango King uses rice or wheat noodles for many of its dishes Pad Thai and Pho. The difference is that Thai cuisines often include stir-frying rice noodles while Viet dishes have them boiled.

Another similarity is the kinds of vegetables and herbs used by both countries. The most popular ones include basil, cilantro, lemongrass, and broccoli. There is also the use of spinach and wombok or Chinese cabbage. Seafood dishes are also abundant in both countries. Mango King usually uses their shrimp dishes for most of its seafood-based items.

Mango King also includes Chinese cuisines in its menu from fried rice to noodles. They also benefit from the same set of ingredients including sesame seeds and soy sauce. Vietnamese dishes tend to be more similar to French than Chinese but there is some adoption over the years since China is just north of its capital city. Thailand may be far away but it had good trading relationships with China in ancient times. 

Original Dishes in Mango King

Mango King specializes in classic recipes of Thai and Vietnamese cuisines. However, it is also the best place for the chef to explore new and original recipes that they could call their own! Many of these will be featured in the daily specials of the restaurant. If they are no longer on the menu by the time you visit, feel free to make a request that is ‘off the menu’. The ingredients used are always available in the restaurant as these specials are inspired by Thai and Viet cuisines, as well!
