My friends have heard me rave about this hole-in-the-wall Thai resto for some many times. I've been visiting Thuk Thai for countless times, and I still love it!
Thai food is a bit similar to Filipino food, but leaning more on the spicy and curry side. For those who aren't too tolerant with spicy food, Thai food also have non-spicy dishes.
Thuk Thai used to be located near UA&P but transferred at Rockwell Ortigas. It offers authentic Thai food at the most affordable prices. The place is on a minimalist side with photos from Thailand.
Thuk Thai offers dishes that are either for sharing or for solo. You may also choose which meat to use for most curry and noodle dishes.
We ordered Khao Tops or rice toppings this time.
I suggested that my friend orders Gai or chicken on Khao Gaeng Kheawan or green curry on rice (Php 145)
The dish is a bit tricky since it would taste sweet at first but it slowly becomes hot. It is quite tolerable for me, but a glass of water on the side would help.
I was on my safe side and ordered a non-spicy dish, Khao Nua Namman Hoy or beef with oyster sauce on rice (Php 140) The sauce in this dish is a bit sweet, the beef is also tender. (I wasn't able to take a picture of it, too bad).
For our noodle dish, we ordered Phad See Eaw with Moo or Pork (Php 130 for small, Php 215 for large).
Phad See Eaw has Thai flat noodles with native pechay and soy sauce. It is a good alternative to Phad Thai, especially to those who are allergic to nuts. I prefer ordering this one since I prefer flat noodles.
We both got Thai Iced Tea (Php 65) and Lemongrass Iced Tea (Php 55).
My friend liked the Lemongrass Iced Tea, the Thai Iced Tea is a milktea which I couldn't quite judge because I'm not a fan of milktea. Hahaha.
Overall, I love the simplicity of the ambiance of Thuk Thai. It is more affordable than other Thai restos.
I love Thuk Thai!
PS Thanks for the lunch treat! :)
