Sawadee Ka: Krung Thai in Metro Manila (Second time Around)

Typical Sunday turned into a wonderful one. 🙂

Its been one and a half years since Seasielle bond with her friend, and two years since she last ate at Krung Thai. “Ber” months had finally arrived, and gatherings are common scenarios you can see in the country. After everything, finally they (Seasielle and Da) shared an everlasting memory.

Krung Thai is a Thailand inspired restaurant located within the public market of Marikina City (a City within NCR, Ph).

The place was a hot catch since it was lunch time; thankfully, Seasielle’s family didn’t wait to be sat since there was a vacant table good for four (4) people.

What’s on the Menu?
They ordered the following:
Vietnamese Spring Roll
Pad Thai
Chicken Satay
Beef tenderloin
Soup (spicy one)
Thai Ice Tea

Total amount spent: Php 1500 + tip since there was no service charge.

Overall Satisfaction Rating: 3.5
Food: 3.5
Place: 4
Price: 3.5

Reason/s:
The first time that they tried it, everything was sumptuous, and truly melts into your mouth. Now: everything was good for commercial and/or fast food taste.
Then, the price was a bit expensive for the value of the food.
Customer service was good. They still managed to be courteous even though one can see that they were a bit tired already. (Maybe because of the hot weather).
Finally, the location is a bit hard to find for first timers, but since it was their second time around, Seasielle would give it a pop points now.

Overall: It was a well-spent Sunday, and according to her friend she enjoyed the meal very much.

God bless everyone.

Finding Our Way to a Fantastic Treat: Kitchen Diaries and Epic Coffee Roastery

The changing weather in the country is really unpredictable. I don’t know what’s worse: rainy day or sunny day. Rainy days during the first week of August felt so unreal since it’s not helping at all. What a nice greeting for the start of a new month.

My sister and I decided to order some food to cope up with the rainy weather last Wednesday (Aug. 5). Since the rain is pouring heavily, and since the delivery charge is so unreasonable, we prayed that the rain will slow down or will stop, and yes, it happened. Thank you.

At around 8:00 in the evening, we decided to get some ice cream at Paradis Kapitolyo (Yes, we’re weird and we’re proud of it). We really want to get a scoop of an ice cream since we got upset of our dinner. Sadly, upon arriving to the said place, it was closed. I’m not sure if it’s because of the weather or it is closed for good. Well, I prefer the former since I really want to get a taste of their natural ice cream.

Moving on, we decided to have a frappe at Epic instead since we didn’t get a chance to taste it the last time we’ve been there. Upon arriving, the soothing aroma of its coffee is really revitalizing and welcoming. Feels at home. 🙂 I ordered Strawberry frappe and my sister got Epic Specialty frappe.
When we finally had our order, we decided to finally go home since the weather is not that good as well. Luckily, while we were walking my sister saw the signage of Kitchen Diaries Cafe. We don’t know how to go inside since it’s located at the second floor of an establishments. I think we were so blessed because we saw two people outside and asked them where’s the stairs going up. They accompanied us since there’s a dog barking (Yes, a dog inside the cage). Our hesitation to go were really high since we were both afraid of dogs that’s not our own pet. But then, we were already there so we faced our fear. The stairs of Kitchen Diaries Cafe is so adorable. When we reached the place: the scenery, the ambiance and overall interior is really awesome. If you’re one of the selfie-ready people, this place is a perfect get-away for you. Bring your cameras or smart phones and capture the moment. Our regrets since we did not bring anything aside from our money. Anyway, we’ll surely be back in this place.

Upon arriving, we sat in the corner near the window and placed our order. Scanning their menus, I made up my mind and ordered pancake (solo) while my sister also got the same though she ordered twin. We spent Php 245 as far as I remember. Before we leave, we were so surprised because they gave us cupcakes which is their specialty because they’re known for making delicious delicacies. We chose Chocolate Oreo and Chocolate Chips. It was so nice of them to do that good act for us.

Personally, I like their pancake and of course, their cupcakes. Worth the price.

Anyway, if you want to visit these awesome places, just go in East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig City and surely you will find these must-try food places.

God bless!
