trying thai cuisine for the first time

restaurants, foodie adventures, dining out, Thai Cuisine

We made a stop at the South Luzon Tollway on our way back from Tagaytay last year to eat lunch. We decided to try Thai cuisine for the first time and checked out Sakon Thai Restaurant and Noodle House just across Chowking, were we made a quick stop to buy the little man his favorite Pancit Canton meal. We settled for an order of their Seafood Hot Basil {Php255}, Beef Red Curry {Php205} and Jasmine Rice {Php35 for 2 orders}.

While waiting for our order and keeping watch of the little man who simply cannot wait to dig into his lunch, I made a quick survey of the restaurant and took some snaps. The place has a charming air about it and I really love the ambiance. They also have a display cabinet by the window, where they are selling some lovely wears, which I am presuming were also from Thailand. There are beautiful cloth products, beads, and lovely and interesting Buddha images. No, I did not see a taylor 110e guitar case displayed anywhere, but may I just note that the place is also playing interesting Thai music to get everyone into the vibe.

After a few minutes our orders finally arrived. The aroma of the delicious food wafting into our noses is just enough to make us even more hungry. I am not too fond of curry, but surprisingly I really enjoyed their Beef Red Curry. This curry sure tasted very different from the usual curry dishes that we normally have. I also love the seafood dish. Sure was a bit spicy, but it was something I absolutely enjoyed! After our meal, we also had a free taste of a native Thai dessert called Taco, which tasted so much like our local maja blanca with a lot of coconut milk! I just love it, i wish there was more!

All in all, our very first Thai cuisine experience is something really enjoyable and I cannot wait to do it again. 🙂

My share for this week’s:

a delightful world chicken meal

food musings, dining out, chicken

If you want to go on a food binge, the best place to go is World Chicken! Yes, I might be a tad bias since their oh-so delicious pastas are my favorite, along with a number of side dishes like the decadent potato salad, but I am sure you will agree that they also offer a healthy concoction with their freshly-grilled chicken. It is a welcome break from all the thickly-coated fried chicken that most fast food chain offer.

It has been ages since I’ve had my World Chicken meal and I am glad we had the chance to eat there when we went out to see a film and stroll in the mall the other day. We are sort of tired from the little man’s usual Chowking dining requests and since there are just a host of different options, we decided to give Trinoma’s food court a visit and chose World Chicken!

My platter included a serving of the healthy grilled chicken, tuna fettucine, potato salad and a glass of thirst-quenching lemonade. Can you tell am already half-way through my meal when I took the photo? 😛 I was also thrilled to notice that World Chicken is serving their beverages in cute paper cups with equally lovely paper straws! Kudos to them for lending a hand in helping to reduce the use of plastic!

The little man was just slightly interested with the day’s meal and only had a few spoonfuls of chicken and pasta, and will not take a sip off the lemonade no matter how much we insisted that it is just as delicious as his favorite pineapple juice. He preoccupied himself by playing with the toy we brought along and listening to the piped-in music blaring from the food court’s music system.

After the meal we then headed off to explore a bit of the mall, checking out lovely display here and there, like the nice Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures and this cool godin a6 at guitar center, and went to see the film Frozen, which is why we went there in the first place.
