My Thai Kitchen

Ever since our last high school reunion, I was able to catch up with one of my closest friends in high school, Michelle.  Since I was on vacation leave that time, we decided to meet up and bond over a good meal.  We went to the new Eastwood mall and had lunch at My Thai Kitchen.

I really like the ambiance of the place.  The interior was totally awesome!  I love how they made good use of space with those black drawers.  I also love the pink wallpapers plus the lighting of the restaurant.  I like the coziness of the place and the calming effect it had on us.

My Thai Kitchen Ambiance

My Thai Kitchen serves Thailand food.  I guess with so many Thailand restaurants in the Metro, I wanted to find out what differentiates it from the rest.  Honestly, for me, all those restaurants are the same.  I guess, it’s just how they cooked the food, how the food tasted and how they designed their restaurant which makes them unique, popular & successful.

One thing is for sure.  When you’re in a Thai restaurant, expect food that are hot & spicy.  Thai cuisine is definitely known to use fresh herbs and spices plus the flavors of the dishes are a balance of spicy, sour, salty, sweet and bitter.

Here are the dishes that Michelle & I ordered:

  • Tom Yam Goong (Php 225)

tom yum goong my thai kitchen

My Thai Kitchen’s Tom Yam Goong was one flavorful dish!  Very spicy too!  This popular Thai soup with shrimps in hot & sour soup was cooked with too much spices that every spoonful was delightfully tasty!  I was hoping that every time we get some serving, it will just refill itself hahaha!  Yeah I know, dreaming!

The chef really took to heart the # 1 rule in cooking Tom Yam Goong: never, never be bland.  They stayed true to what Tom Yam Goong should taste like: hot & sour.  Winner dish definitely!

  • Pla Meuk Tort Gratiam Prik Thai (Php 280)

squid my thai kitchen

I’m not sure how they did it but this was one of the better stir-fried squid I have eaten.  It felt like a snack to me.  If I can borrow Pringles’ tagline “Once you pop, you can’t stop”, it can definitely be used in this dish.  We were eating this like there was no tomorrow.

  • Gai Phat Bai Kraphrau (Php 235)

chicken basil my thai kitchen

We weren’t planning to order this dish.  I was too curious though when I saw a picture of this dish in My Thai Kitchen’s menu.  I had to try it out.  It says it’s chicken with fried basil.  From the looks of it, it looked like ground chicken with chopped vegetable and fried basil.  I was ecstatic to try it out.  When the dish came, it tasted ordinary.  Not something we would order again but it was a unique dish.

  • Khau Pad Siam (Php 85)

my thai kitchen fried rice

Thai fried rice.  I wish I can describe it better but it was just plain fried rice.

  • Fresh Fruit Juice (Php 110)

shake my thai kitchen

Fruit shakes were also available.  My friend has chosen green mango that day.

  • Cha Yen (Php 95)

thai milk tea my thai kitchen

There’s something about Thai Milk Tea that I really like.  I don’t know how they make the Thai tea but I’m sure that it was condensed milk that they added.  Always one of my favorite drinks :)

  • Khao Neaw Mamuang (Php 110)

mango dessert my thai kitchen

Usually people would order crepe or halo halo.  But there’s just something about sticky rice that I like and My Thai Kitchen’s own version didn’t disappoint!  They served mangoes on top and ice cream on the side.  It was the perfect dessert to end a wonderful Thai meal :)

Yesterday, I was actually asking Michelle her feedback about My Thai Kitchen.  I wanted to get more inputs before I write this review.  She did mention that she liked the food a lot and would love to eat there again.  I, however, cannot say that it’ll be one of my fave Thai restaurants but the experience was nice.
