Back to my wonderful trip to Thailand that happened way back, here’s the second part I promised to write about. The food! If you haven’t read my previous post on Thailand, you can read it here. I mentioned countless times that I have a love for thai food. And it’s not only me but my brothers as well. At first I remember only eating chicken pandan. But after going on a field trip to Thailand with my school, I found that there were much more foods that came to my liking. During our trip, we came across 3 thai restaurants.The first one was called Nara. The first restaurant we ate in this whole trip. The reason for choosing it was because it is one of thailand’s best restaurants from 2007 all the way through this very year. We wanted to try out what made this restaurant such a hit.
There are three main types of Thai food that I eat: Chicken Pandan, Pad Thai and Green chicken curry. Im not a foodie, but what’s weird is I identify the flavour of each dish and see what I like most. Here, my favorite was the Green chicken curry. Although chanting ‘spicy but yummy’ many times; drinking loads of water and eating spoonfuls of rice, it was worth it.
But the other dishes were just as good satisfying me and my family’s hungry stomachs. What a big late lunch. No wonder we had such a light dinner. This tasted very similar to The Mango Tree! This proves that the restaurants here in Manila serve authentic Thai food. Job well done :).
Silly me forgot the name of the next Thai restaurant we ate in. Anyways we ordered the same food as always again checking which we found best. The pandan was a little bland, the pad thai was good and the green chicken curry had a little twist by adding a side twist of roti. Yum! Not bad at all!
The last restaurant was called Silam Village, we found it in the airport just before we said goodbye to Bangkok. As always, the food was great. After all thai people know how to make thai food the best. Here, the dish that got my attention was the chicken pandan. No weird after tastes or anything like that. This is thumbs up for the people like me who don’t like trying out new foods.
So now you’re probably wondering, where can I find good pad thai? In the floating market! That sounds bazaar but having one fresh pad thai cooked from one of the local ladies is your best bet. My whole family thinks so. Now i’m just craving for more. And for your information, we didn’t have thai cuisine the whole time. Or else we would get sick of it. That happened to me with Chinese food! Try eating only that for one whole week. Our family ate in a few japanese restaurants well.
Besides all these restaurants, the mall beside our hotel had many cafes and dessert places, even more than the restaurants! We decided to try this place called After You because many people went there, and assumed it must’ve been good! And we were correct. For my extra large sweet tooth I got a chocolate lava cake for myself and nutella toast to share. We heard that this cafe was known for their toast and we were dying to try it out.
Both of them were amazing! The toast especially. There was A LOT of butter though, and I meant a lot. Hate to break it but not the healthiest thing in the world, yet butter makes it so good.
My parents got something like an apple crumble. Im not big on fruits but they said it was really good.
Our trip to Bangkok wouldn’t have been complete without the food. It played such a big part. I thank thailand for having such amazing chefs and food. Now I leave this blogpost hungry, craving for some chocolate. Luckily we have a big dinner tonight. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
