Beloved and I had our first 2012 food adventure at Trinoma’s Banana Leaf. I’ve actually eaten at this Thai-Malay restaurant before with a couple of friends, but didn’t manage to chronicle that particular time. And since that was a pretty decent experience, we weren’t afraid of trying it out, despite knowing little of Thai cuisine. Anyway, this place is sort of special for a couple of things. First, each order is good for two to three people, making this a family-friendly restaurant. Second, their plates are substituted with banana leaves, hence the name, and further making sharing a must. While there were only two of us, we decided that Beloved takes home any leftovers that we expected to have.
