The first new food place we tried after my Thailand Odyssey was Black Canyon Coffee. This was after going th Marugame Udon’s UP Town Center branch, which me and my Betrothed was craving for as we were feeling under-the-weather, especially with the water crisis. We just wanted some coffee and dessert the first time we went here, and as adventurous gourmands, we unhesitatingly stepped in.
After checking in at Suvarnabhumi Airport, I still had a few hours before my flight. Since it took me around six hours from my last meal at Megabangna until checking in at Suvarnabhumi, I was already a bit famished, especially with all the energy spent lugging around my baggage and the actual process of checking into the airport gates area. Here, I found a Thai restaurant called Silom Village.
As I continue my Thailand Odyssey, I get to spend my last day to my choosing. While it was an option to go to Bangkok since my flight was late at night, my baggage and me being a bit under the weather prevented me from going there. After some research, I found a shopping mall called Megabangna which was close to the airport. Although the place was quite big, the food places were clumped together in an open-air area. I also thought that the architecture was clever in that there’s a bit of an incline, so as you walk, you’re actually already moving upwards to the upper floors. After a bit of exploring, I had lunch at Kub Kao Kub Pla.
Almost a month ago, I went to another solo Odyssey; this time, to attend a conference in Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Thailand. The first couple of days were spent in the campus and the only food places nearby, aside from the in-campus hotel offerings, are its two cafeterias and a 7-Eleven. This first blog post of my Thailand Odyssey chronicles my food adventures within the AIT Campus. Oh, and apologies for the photos—I did not have my Beloved Betrothed to take good photos of my comestibles.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
