Samantha Mumba Special

 

Camile are delighted to announce the wonderful Samantha Mumba, a singer, actress, model and former Celebrity Master Chef Contestant as the latest guest chef to create a wonderful new dish for our menu. Samantha’s dish is a vegetarian take on one of Camile’s most well-loved curries; the wonderful massaman. Customers can enjoy her specially created Chickpea Massaman Curry from the end of June.

Like all Camile sauces, her massaman curry sauce is homemade daily, and she has loaded her dish with fresh and exciting ingredients; chickpeas, cherry tomato, peppers, broccoli, and Irish potatoes, all fragranced with Thai holy basil. The dish is served with Camile’s own steamed brown & wild rice for a delicious, healthy and wholesome meal with none of the guilt.

Commenting on the partnership with Camile, Samantha said; “I genuinely love to cook for my family at home and I am excited to be collaborating with Camile and being able to share this recipe with all of you. As a food lover I enjoy cooking and eating healthy dishes that are both flavoursome and filling – giving me lots of energy that I need as a busy working mum. I am delighted that this guilt-free dish will be conveniently available for those with a craving for something wholesome but deliciously satisfying.”

Following in the footsteps of previous successful guest chefs Rosanna Davison, Indy Power, Jo Canning, Derval O Rourke, and Holly White, Samantha has created a recipe she regularly enjoys to cook at home for friends and family.

Samantha’s Chickpea Massaman Curry will be available in all of our branches for €11.95 from July 2 for a limited time only – so don’t wait!

Our Journey

Camile Thai was born out of the search for something new and the desire to break the mould of the ‘traditional takeaway’ by delivering fresh , restaurant-quality Thai food straight to your door.

We began our journey with humble beginnings, opening our first restaurant close to the heart of Dublin, Dolphin’s Barn, in 2010. Serving a relatively small area, we focused on our high quality food and diverse menu, preparing all of our sauces from scratch and using unique and exotic ingredients such as Thai ginger and basil. Our refreshing approach to home delivery food proved to be a hit, and thanks to the help of our fresh Irish ingredients and delicious Thai recipes we soon expanded throughout Dublin, and with a branch in Limerick. The introduction of the Village restaurant in Phibsboro marked the first full-service Camile experience. We are even beginning to expand internationally with our branches across London, with plans to expand even more in 2018.

 

Keeping things fresh and interesting is important to us – in both our ingredients and dishes – so we work in partnership with special guest chefs to create unique, Thai-inspired dishes! From GAA player Joe Canning to food to this months fitness blogger Holly White, we draw inspiration from brilliant and healthy people, which is reflected in the food and service we provide.

 

We believe in positive change as we grow, and we know how important it is to be both ethical and up-to-date with guests dietary choices, and so last year we created a special Vegan menu, cooked using separate, meat-free woks, oil and utensils which are only ever used for preparing Vegan dishes.

 

As a small business your focus is very much on making ends meet but as you grow you owe more responsibility to the community and also the planet. Environmental and sustainable development has become at the heart of everything we are working on now. We have always have been proud to use local suppliers such as Musgraves, Ready chef, Robinsons meats and Kish Fish but we have also begun to make technological improvements to our operation such as water-regulating wok cookers in an effort to keep our environmental impact as low as possible, however we know we are not there yet, and we are currently looking into more Eco-friendly, biodegradable packaging solutions.

 

Our approach is simple. Our expert Thai chefs create restaurant-quality Thai food using fresh, natural ingredients to be brought right to your door. No grease, no guilt, just delicious, healthy food.

Thai style turkey and cranberry special for a limited time

A very seasonal special at Camile Thai. 

Camile Thai are delighted to present to you our brand new exclusive and limited edition Christmas main course.
We are feeling very festive and as a result, we have come up with a delicious new stir-fry dish for you to enjoy this holiday season.

We thought to ourselves how could we create something with just a hint of Christmas but all the while retaining a Thai food feel? Well, we started thinking about the ingredients and what would work best together. We knew that turkey and cranberry sauce worked well together so we thought about how delicious it might be to use fresh, whole, ripe cranberries. The result….. AMAZING.
Using fresh cranberries gave us the beautiful flavour of ever so slightly acidic but yet distinctively sweet fruit and when combined with succulent minced turkey breast resulted in a taste explosion.
We then added fresh stir-fried vegetables, delicious sweet potato and tied it all together with our special Camile Thai seasoning sauce and your choice of rice or a kale slaw salad.

So for a turkey dish with a difference this Christmas, give it a try.
Order now as this dish is only available for a limited time and priced at €12.95

Finn – Why she chose to create her dish for Camile Thai. In her own words

Whats going on?
So if you’re a Dublin living human, or indeed Limerick, you may have noticed my face, looming at a much higher height then usual, in all the lovely Camile Thai restaurants and carry outs.
I teamed up with the folks at Camile to create a dish for their menu inspired by some of my favourite flavours and ingredients.

The Dish?
One of the things I love about Camile, beyond just my general obsession with Massaman curry, is the notion that a takeaway can be healthy. So much of our fast (or in this case I also just mean quick) food culture is taken up with food that does absolutely nothing for our bodies and just blasts them with an overload of sugar, salt, fat and a dose of MSG for good measure.
So its really awesome that the chefs at Camile are whipping up good food in literally minutes. Continue reading…

Finn Ní Fhaolain on healthy living and healthy eating.

Camile Thai interviewed with the best selling author, blogger, surfer, coeliac and all-round cool and interesting person – Finn Ní Fhaolain.

On your blog as in life, we can see that you love the sea, can you tell us what it is that you love so much? Do you have the same feeling wherever you are in the sea or is it different when you’re home in Ireland? 

I’ve lived by the sea ever since I was little and it’s always been a massive part of my life, from recreation – beach days rain or shine with my parents and friends, to sports – surfing, suping, sailing, swimming or even just running on the beach and even just for a good state of mind, be that a quiet walk by the sea or a quick plunge in the cold salt water. For me, it’s everything, food, the subject I studied in college, my adrenaline and also my calm. Life at sea vs living by the seaside is quite different. I love working on ships, but technically you’re not generally allowed in the water (so I actually spend more time in the gym in those weeks!) so the freedom I find there is not seeing land for a few weeks, it might also sound a bit mad but not being connected to land and for the most part your normal day to day (and often the internet!) is a wonderful way to touch base with your brain and not get distracted. I find I’m either focused on the work I’m doing or in my down time my brain is flooding with ideas for when I come home. I came up with the concept for the blog while I at sea and also the idea for an exciting venture next year this summer while in the Atlantic this summer. Continue reading…
