Two years after and we finally decided to go in. Our quest for Kapitolyo started when he was still courting me.
And then last saturday, we braved the doors of a small restaurant, Thai Dara.
This was included in the first batch of must try restaurants. There was a really strong smell of Thai Food when we went in.
I know what you’ll say. What are we expecting anyway, right? We’re going to eat in a thai food so expect to smell thai food.
As dumb as it sounds, the smell was overwhelming.
Anyway, white tables, white chairs and some B&W Cushions. It was simply vibrant, in a way.
Back to what really matters – food.
Bangkok Spring Rolls for Php 179. Crispy Roll stuffed with Fresh Vegetables served with sweet & sour dip.
It wasn’t that bad. But it also wasn’t what I expected. It tasted somewhat like our Filipino Lumpiang Togue. And the dip doesn’t compliment the dish perfectly.
Sizzling Beef for Php 279. Grilled beef served with cucumber salad and spicy dipping sauce
It came with a really spicy dip that I didn’t like. It somehow corresponded to an indian dip. BUT, this is a good but. The beef, naked beef was really good.
Catfish Salad for Php 199. Catfish flakes with nuts and mango salad.
I’ve always loved catfish flakes! and this one is not an exception.
Bagoong Rice for Php 229. Thai bagoong fried rice with sweet pork & green mango.
Why would you even eat at a thai restaurant and not order bagoong rice?:P
I can eat here again. 🙂 It wont be a problem at all.
