Nothing beats Thai street food.

You can actually get a full course dinner on the streets along Silom in Thailand...

And their Thai Papaya Salad with the crushed talangka , while an acquired taste, is to die for.

Not to mention the skewered fruits they sell of the streets, the spicy tamarind that the street peddlers hawk, those little barbeque/kebabs that are grilled by the roadside.

The variety and depth of Thai street food is just amazing - there is a street food for every meal!

As a corn lover, I always made sure I buy that shredded corn and eat it with niyog. Akala mo puto.
Their corn when sliced doesn't scatter, it looks like sliced ham.

I remember eating siomai from a kid vendor near my hotel, grabe sarap!!!!
Iba talaga mga food gimmicks ng mga thai! I remember drinking beer on the sidewalks with noodles as dinner.

Man, their skewers rules! Sarap!

Pad Thai! It's sauteed beef noodles sprinkled with lemon.

The one and only Thai dish I like, so far.

I love Thai food, spent weeks in Bangkok with my ass literally burning.

Don't know if the Philippine market can absorb all Thai products. But I send you the best of luck.

For Thai food, I get my fix at Sala Thai near PWU. In Makati I go to Som's (which is a little too sweet) but good anyway.

Just saw this place last weekend

I find the hygene questionable

The place have a few Thai memorabillas

It is along P. Noval near the corner of España.

What do u recommend to order here aside from Pad Thai?

To the fellow, thinking of putting up a Thai resto, let's meet and talk. Here's my 3 cents on Thai food.

I lived and worked in Bangkok for 11 years, so I guess I can speak with some authority on Thai food. One of my favorite pastimes was to check out noodle shops on every street and compare the taste of my favorite dishes. Surprisingly, there aren't two noodle shops that serve exactly the same tasting food. I have posted some other stuff on Thai food in the Secret places in Bangkok thread.

The key to Thai food is that almost every dish usually has all the tastes (spicy, salty, sweet, sour, sometimes bitter). Like someone in this thread posted, you cannot substitute for ingredients not available in RP. For example, the kaffir lime leaves and galanggal (a type of ginger) that are both key to making tom yum kung (spicy shrimp soup) are not available on a commercial quantity. You can only find them in the specialty section of some supermarkets.

I also want to stress that some Thai restaurants in Manila have adjusted the taste of some of the dishes they serve, apparently, to suit the Filipino palate. To me, that is culinary cheating. Thai food must be served as it is served in the streets of Bangkok. The best Thai restaurant to me was Ayutthaya (used to be located somewhere at St. Francis square behind SM megamall). It was run by the daughter of Gen. Rafael Ileto, who was previously ambassador to Bangkok. Prices were a a bit steep, but everything was genuine. The Sala Thai near PWU is also okay, particularly since their prices are reasonable. I donlt know if Krung Thai is still operating in Makati. The Muang Thai on Banawe was disappointing, because the khao phat khai (fried rice w/ chicken) that I ordered during my only visit there about ten years ago was cooked in butter (horrors!). I never got to try the Thai resto at UP, although people I know who did swore that the food was authentic Thai. The oodys (tama ba?) look pricey and I have yet to try them. However, they seem to serve too many kinds of dishes (as based on the menu) that the focus might no longer be on Thai food. I read a news article on PDI a year ago that a new Thai resto was going to open at Festival mall in Alabang. Can anyone tell me if this pushed through?

There's a resto at Shangri-La mall on Shaw, Penang Hill. They serve some Thai food, but was not able to try it because we settled for samossa and other Indian stuff.

Will post other observations and opinions on Thai food next time.
