I've been to Thai Bistro in Robinsons Magnolia and thought the food was just okay (see post here),
so I wasn't expecting much when we had dinner at Cecille Chang's new restaurant at the Fort.
I love the lanterns at Silk Road.
It was a week night and I was pleasantly surprised to arrive to a fully packed dining room
Good thing we had upstairs all to ourselves because I was with two of Manila's craziest peoples! :P
The Thai Iced Tea was how it should be - rich and bittersweet...
like true love is.
Soft Shell Crab Roll - honestly, my taste buds did not detect any crab. Nonetheless, these were
nice rolls filled with fresh ingredients that acted as fillers. Sometimes, my stomach needs fillers.
Prawn Cakes - nicely fried and shrimpy
Thai Ravioli - so delicious we had two servings of this. Actually, I ordered a second plate
because Tina and Marco didn't leave any for me!
That was some really tasty and tender sesame beef and shiitake mushrooms wrapped inside
the freshest, most delicate rice paper. A must order at Silk Road (especially if your "friends"
did not leave any for you! Lol!) :D
Madame Green Chicken Curry - we requested for mild spicy, but it came out still significantly hot.
Marco to the waiter: MILD NA ITO?!?! SINO CHEF NYO DITO? SI LUCIFER????? (LOL!!!)
I, on the other hand, thought it had the perfect level of heat. I scooped spoonfuls of the curry
onto my pad thai. It was my secret to eating Thai food without raping jasmine rice.
I must always eat Pad Thai at a Thai restaurant, and it doesn't hurt if the noodles came bagged
in a pretty Bott-EGG-ga Veneta! ;)
Marco was telling us about his encounter with this super gorgeous and sexy man during one of his travels.
"He whispered into my ear and I could feel the warmth of his breath. His breath smelled like pinipig."
The pinipig breath caressing my ear...
That was exactly how I felt while eating this homemade coconut ice cream.
NEVER a dull moment with these two! :)
