Buddha's Bowl

Buddha's Bowl
(Harbor Point, Subic)

Beloved and I celebrated our anniversary at Subic this past week. We took the bus from Cubao and walked to Harbor Point Mall after getting dropped off the outskirts of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone. It was a long walk and we were famished, so we ate at the first unique place that caught our eye (there weren’t a lot)—Buddha’s Bowl.

Thaipan

Thaipan
(Scout Dr. Lazcano, near Tomas Morato)

Beloved and I celebrated Valentines day at Thaipan. We didn’t really plan on going. In fact, we didn’t have any reservation. We just decided on a whim to go to Tomas Morato and check out food places where there are seats available and preferably haven’t tried yet. This place, while a bit of a way from Tomas Morato, was the first one we checked out. There were many reservations, but, luckily, we were accommodated immediately.

Muang Thai

Muang Thai
(Malakas Street, near Kalayaan)

Beloved and I had dinner last night at Muang Thai. This Thai restaurant boasts authenticity and is located at Malakas St., near Matalino St. at Diliman, between Kalayaan and East avenues. Beloved was craving for Thai food, and since this was located near where she’s currently reviewing for boards, we decided to try it out.

Banana Leaf

Banana Leaf
(Trinoma)

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.

The Mango Tree Bistro

The Mango Tree Bistro
(Trinoma)

Beloved and I had dinner at The Mango Tree Bistro, which is a newly-opened restaurant at Trinoma, taking part of the floor area of Powerbooks at the third floor, last night. This is a Thai restaurant with a dimly-lit interior making it not the coziest place, especially for solar-powered bouncing cow bearing denizens. Of course, I doubt you’ll be one, and if you go here, you’re probably craving for a rarity in the Metro that is Thai cuisine, or are just curious. We happen to be the latter.
