Sen Lek Thai Noodles

This is one of the best resto discovery this January (so far).

While cruising President Avenue in BF Paranaque, C spotted Dong Juan, which she excitedly says was originally from Cebu. We would've eaten there but I said that since she already had an idea on what the food tastes like (with happy food memories, too), I sugessted we eat in a "new" restaurant so that we can rave or rant about it later on. Besides, both of us know that BF Paranaque is famous for its numerous restaurants. Initially, I was trying to recall the name of a Japanese resto that I've read in another blog but all I remember was Aguirre Avenue. And we saw the street (avenue) alright but we didn't see any Japanese-looking restaurant and we were already at the park/playground. Or maybe we made a wrong turn somewhere. And because we were famished, we decided to head back to an Italian resto that we saw earlier along President Avenue. Then we saw Dong Juan again and beside it was Sen Lek Thai Noodles. Hmmm ... looks interesting. And with herbs and spices for good health, too! Nah, we're not heath-food buffs. Just your regular foodies. ;)






It was already past 2pm when we entered the restaurant so no ones around except us, and the waitresses.  I love the shelf with the Thai decors. The place is very clean also. 


 
  


Ordering food, by the way, is done at the counter and you also have to pay first. O-kay. Its canteen-ish, not resto-ish. No problemo. Everything on the menu sounds yummy but we were able to control ourselves from ordering too much. And guess what- we were only P20 short of our forecasted food budget. Nice!


Chicken in Green Curry Sauce, P120. C said its good, with just the right hint of spiciness. Didn't get to try it, though. 
   


Thai Milk Tea, P50. Better than Soms! Not that sweet and you can actually tastes the tea compared to Soms which has about 150% sugar that you need to ask for tons of ice. But I love Soms Thai Milk Tea, also. Hehehe

Pad Thai, P90. The noodle was al dente which made us exclaim that maybe this is an Italian restaurant after all. But the jokes on us. It-was-so-good-that-we-were-praising-it-with-each-and-every-bite. That good, really.


 
Thai Bagoong Fried Rice, P120. Another winner. The meat was tender and flavorful and has the right serving portion, not "bitin." It's not malansa also (the bagoong).

 

   
Tod Mun Kung or Shrimp Cakes, P90. I was going to complain that it looks "konti" but then, looks can be deceiving. Its very filling and didn't scrimp on shrimps. And it doesn't look it's made from synthetic shrimps. 





That's the menu on the wall. The waitress was talking to someone on the phone so I'm guessing its either they do deliveries or someone will pick-up some yummy goodies soon. 

 


Glad to have discovered this restaurant. It would be nice to come back after a day or two or maybe next week but it's TOO FAR! Thank God for Skyway, though. ;)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
