And now, … Continue reading Mango Tree: Finally, Authentic Thai Fine Dining in Manila?!

You … Continue reading Dek A: Authentic Thai Hole-in-the-Wall Resto in Makati
I am on a constant lookout for cheap Thai finds, and another one opened along Granada St. in Greenhills. This street is notorious for having the record of the most promising restaurants closing down in less than a year’s time.

A lot of U.P. Foodies were thrilled to see the former U.P. Thai Canteen open in Ortigas Home Depot early this year. Most people thought that Mommy Thai (as the owner was fondly called by U.P. students) closed the resto for good in 2006 after moving twice outside of the campus. I finally had the chance to try it in its current home near Starbucks in Ortigas Home Depot.

Thai Pad inspired by authentic SukhoThai Cooking or Recipes by SukhoThai For semi-catering and reservations 816-1329 Open Mon-Saturday 11am to 9pm Along Pasong Tamo where Canon Service Center is located.
