Delightful Thai Dishes at Thaipan

Thaipan has been one of the longest running restaurants in the Scout Area of Quezon City and it is a known fact that a restaurant wouldn't survive that long if it is not good. I've been to Thaipan three years ago and has visited the restaurant a couple of times since then but never came back for a long time since I don't really frequent that part of the city.


Thaipan has numerous delicious dishes but I'm sharing my personal favorites:

Mieng Kham. These are grated roasted coconut with spices and served on Betel leaf. Really, really good and healthy. And had I not read the description on the menu, I wouldn't have thought that its coconut.


Tom Yum Kung. Hot and sour broth with prawns and straw mushrooms. Super good especially if you love spicy dishes. The burst of flavors are simply amazing. Definitely one of the best Tom Yum I've tasted around the Metro.


Pla Lad Prik Sam Ros or Fish Tamarind. The first time I tried this, I was like ---- WOW !!! I still felt the same about this dish after not having gone to Thaipan for a long time. Aside from the fish, I also love the crispy basil leaves. Thumbs up!


Soft Shell Crab in Black Pepper Sauce. This dish will make you want to eat more rice. Great as pica-pica also.


Pandan Chicken. This is one of the popular Thai dishes that every one loves, including me. The meat is already flavorful so its best not to dip it in chili sauce, but it's really up to you.


Ta Koh Sakhoo. Steamed tapioca. Not that sweet but its a great dessert to cap off a nice Thai meal at Thaipan.

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!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
