“TASTE GOOD, FEEL FAB” is the concept of Daniel Green’s food. Daniel Green, who recently joined VIE Hotel Bangkok and V Villas Hua Hin as cluster general manager, believes “a healthy menu doesn’t need to be tasteless and you don’t need to control that much of your diet to enjoy food in your life.”
A popular host of U.S. cooking TV programs and author of six cook books, food columnist for various publications and health products presenter, he delights in showing how his culinary art is both fabulously tasty as well as healthy.
For VIE, he has created a new selection of healthy and low-calorie dishes with a new trendy presentation in color plates. His menu offers a wide range of cuisines that will be incorporated in buffets, brunch, à la carte and room service, varying from appetizers, soups, main dishes, to desserts and drinks. His dishes not only help to balance an individual’s nutritious diet but are also a feast for the eyes.
Presentations will be in four different color plates:
Red plate – which presents food with high protein, low carbs.
Green plate – which offers vegetarian cuisine.
Yellow plate – which presents low fat dishes.
Purple plate – which focuses on foods designed to reboot your energy and help you get over jet lag.

Seaweed wraps with egg ,smoked salmon and edamame.
