Thai Bistro: Sugar N Spice & Everything Nice

If you’re into spice, this is going to be a pleasant surprise. Thai Bistro was a very yummy discovery for Jason and I as we were strolling in Robinsons Magnolia for our much awaited and needed quality time.

What got our attention was this tarpaulin at their entrance stating the reviews from bloggers. With the good reviews, we decided to experience for ourselves the thrill of spice their tastebuds were treated to.

Jason had Thai Bistro’s Lemongrass Juice to ease the pain in his throat.

 I also had a sip of his tea and had it with honey.

I told myself I was just going to be healthy and have greens that night so I got myself the Prime Angus Beef Salad.

I didn’t expect that it would be spicy. Good thing I love spices since it enhances the flavor and makes the dish interesting. The salad wasn’t the regular Western Salad that had more lettuce. This one was soaked in vinegar and it also had the aftertaste of herbs. It also tasted like orchids by the way since the scent of the flower seemed to have influenced the vinegar below.

The medium rare angus beef I had was soft and tender. For me this served as an appetiser. Instead of just having salad, the flavors gave me the craving to have and eat more than what I originally planned for.

So when Jason’s fresh egg noodles curry came, i requested for a bowl and a serving of noodles – my bowl of shame. (since I told myself I was just going to have veggies that night).

This was again spicy and the curry for me was delicious! We both loved the curry sauce and I liked how the noodles were crunchy despite the sauce. This actually excited me to get myself authentic Thai food in the country of spices hopefully soon. 🙂

I forgot about my so called diet after having my bowl of shame and even finishing off the last bite of Chiang Mai Khao Soi.

But since Jason and I were discussing a hot topic. [about the future] I guess it’s just appropriate to lighten up and have some sweets. Okay I’m just making up an excuse to satisfy my sweet tooth.

This was one of the bestsellers from Thai Bistro so we didn’t pass up the chance to have it. Takhoo Thai dessert is warm tapioca pearls topped with creamy coconut sauce. It wasn’t too sweet and it wasn’t to heavy too that you’d feel guilty afterwards. [I actually had 3], Jason was chatting away, so he didn’t quite notice I was having a little more than enough sweets.

Thai Bistro is a thumbs up for me. The place is conducive for connecting and communicating, plus they also have this VIP area where you could hold parties / meetings at only Php8,000 good for 15pax.

I’d definitely come back here again to have my dose of sugar n spice, and everything nice. 🙂
