Siam Thai Cuisine
April 25, 2010
Since it’s my 1st time to go to Cebu, I would want to try out restaurants I haven’t tried before. Siam Thai Cuisine looked very interesting, so when asked where to eat, I suggested Siam Thai Cuisine. Definitely, a good choice! No wonder why we had to wait for a few minutes to be seated. People really spend time to wait until a table is available. It is definitely worth the wait!
The ambiance is very welcoming, the lighting & the art work are really cool. The food is most especially mouthwatering & delicious! I wish we had this in Manila. I’m pretty sure it would be a hit.
Service is pretty cool too. While we were dining, the servers went to the other table singing happy birthday song hahaha! I never thought that they would do something like that considering that Thai restaurants really don’t do those things.
We ordered the ff.:
- Tom Yum Prawn Soup (Php 195)
This is like my favorite dish from all that we ordered. It was spicy but definitely very tasty. It had that sour taste to it too that is characteristic of this soup. Seafood & vegetables inside the soup. They cooked it perfectly.
- Chicken in Garlic (Php 115)
This dish is actually surprisingly good considering how simple it is. Best for appetizers or if you just want to have something to munch on. The chicken is soft and very tender, and the breading has a great taste to it.
- Siam Grilled Fish in Thai Gravy Sauce (Php 250)
I thought this was chicken curry that I almost never tried it. Good thing, I heard Nick’s friend said that the fish was really good. I have to look around and find where the fish was hahaha! It was this dish all along and I must agree, it was good! The sauce was not curry sauce but thai gravy sauce. It looked the same though 😛 I think this dish was also one of the more popular ones on the table.
- Sauteed Chicken with Cashew Nuts (Php 170)
This is in short, kung pao chicken. Cooked just right, thought this was a Chinese dish. Anyways, it’s tasty & delicious. No complaints! 😀 What more can you ask when they mix the right combination of spiciness, sweetness, saltiness into one dish. Not to mention the fresh taste of every ingredient.
- Phad Thai Noodles with Egg (Php 180)
I had a lot of aahhh moment in Siam Thai Cuisine. This particular dish, I thought was omelette. I was quite surprised to find out that it was actually the Phad Thai. Phad Thai is a very popular fried noodles in Thailand. Very nice touch to make it like omelette.
- Chatuchak Spareribs (Php 190)
Spare ribs done Siam style. Again, like the chicken before, very simple dish, but I believe the best dishes are always the simple ones. Although, I usually like my ribs more tender, and probably grilled rather than fried. I must admit, that the preparation for this dish had to be done well because once again, it was seasoned perfectly. And tasted so great. If you’re into fried ribs, this is something worth the try.
- Crab Fried Rice (Php 180)
- Bagoong Fried Rice (Php 180)
I love the bagoong they put here. There was a lot of sauce so it gave the rice more taste. Best to combine all the ingredients before serving.
- Siam Iced Green Tea (Php 65)
- Siam Iced Tea with Milk (Php 65)
This was better than the green tea. I wish I ordered this one over the other. Anyway, it’s nice that I was able to try both.
Glad we tried Siam! The food was too good! Loved it! The pictures can be found in my Flickr album.
