Although hubzky and I love to eat, we are not the adventurous type. We do not crave for exotic food nor do we long for something beyond Filipino cuisine; although sometimes we love to try something new. Except for Japanese and Mongolian food, we are confident that some other foreign dishes served in restaurants here in our place are adjusted to suit every Filipino taste buds 🙂 and so here were are tasting one of the foreign dishes we both love – Thai food.
At Krua Thai
Krua Thai Authentic Cuisine is one of the many restos here in our place. This restaurant is located at Smallville Business Center, Mandurriao, Iloilo City.
“Krua Thai” simply means Thai Kitchen. I’m not really sure what happens in any Thai kitchen but I really love the harmony of all ingredients in every Thai menu.
Here are some photos we took when we had dinner at Krua Thai:
from the placemat to the utensils, the look has an impressive native touch
guess they knew it was our anniversary so they gave us heart-shaped serving of rice
forgot the exact name of the shrimp-based addition to my rice but I really love its spicy taste
At Banana Leaf
Banana Leaf is a restaurant we randomly chose while strolling around The Terraces in Cebu. Its also menu offers some Thai food. Here are photos of the ones we ordered:
wondering why it’s called banana leaf?
now, I know why 🙂
I couldn’t take the taste of the Thai drink (the one inside the taller glass) so I ordered bottled water 😛
For those who love Thai food or those who are interested in knowing how Thai food tastes, hope this post helps. The menus above may look different but for us who are leaning more towards the safe side than the adventurous side, you’re assured that the said dishes will suit your Filipino cravings plus it won’t get you into any stomach-related trouble 😀
