Of Coconut Soups + Curries

foodie adventures, dining out, Thai Cuisine, restaurants

It is one of those rare occasions when the grown ups get to choose to eat wherever we want when we had one delicious dining experience, complete with coconut soup and curry. For starters, I was not a big fan of spicy food and curry until we tried an authentic thai cuisine a few years back and we absolutely loved it!

We ventured past the array of restaurants at the 4th level of Trinoma undecided on where to take our rather late lunch and saw a great place to have some curry and Thai, Banana Leaf.

It was a bit past lunch time so we decided on something heavy to fill our hungry stomachs and opted for their Thai Coconut Seafood Soup, Malayan Beef Curry with Potatoes, and Stir Fired Prawns in Malayan Coconut Curry. Of course, we also ordered cups of rice to pair with the dishes. I also tried their Iced Lemon Grass with Honey to pair with my meal and I loved it!

The Thai Coconut Seafood Soup {288} is really yummy! I love the delicious blend of different seafood, while the coconut milk lends an appetizing sweet flavor to the soup. It was a refreshing soup to start a lovely meal, especially on a hot afternoon.

Trying Out Chef’s Noodles Bibimbap

food musings, foodie adventures, korean food, dining out

I have always raved about Korean cuisine ever since I had the chance to dine in one of those hole-in-the-wall Korean carinderia in Makati many years ago. That is why I have been eyeing the Chef’s Noodles branch at the local mall but we never really get to try it there. Good thing we finally managed to visit a few weeks back and got to taste their bibimbap. This dish is a traditional Korean dish and literally translates to “mixed rice.” Simply put, it is a bowl of warm rice topped with different ingredients, including beef, seafood, eggs and vegetables. I am a big fan of rice topping so I was really looking forward to trying this dish out.
