Thai at Silk Restaurant2:50 AM
I am not adventurous with Asian cuisine. I always tend to dine with restaurants offering more of a Western vibe. But last night, I bent some rules and took that leap of gastronomic faith with Silk Thai Cuisine.
More pictures after the jump!
Situated at the heart of Serendra lifestyle mall in Fort Bonifacio, Silk was crowned as one of the best restaurants in the market that offers Thai cuisine (source:spot.ph). Their cozy interiors, relaxing ambiance and courteous staff makes dining here even more appealing. Their Silk menu is also made up of traditional Thai cuisine, in which a complete meal not only acquaints you with various spices and flavors of Asia, it also allows you to enjoy a balance of the four fundamental taste flavors of Thai cuisine - sweet, spicy, salty and sour.
Our dinner menu consisted of:
Pandan Martini - a perfect light refreshing cocktail drink that pairs well with the flavors of Thai Food.
Seafood Satay - marinated squid, shrimp and shapper fillets on skewers with vinegar and chill sauce and peanut sauce.
Fresh Thai Spring Rolls - this best selling appetizer is a take from Vietnamese cuisine; rolls of fresh shrimp, pork, bean sprouts, Chinese vermicelli, cucumber, carrots, spring onions and basil served with Thai peanut sauce, sweet vinegar and cucumber dipping sauce.
Thai Style Apple & Mango Salad - Som Tam Style salad composed of grated apple and green mango dressed in a sour vinaigrette.
Chiang Mai Curry Noodles - a popular street dish in Thailand. It is comprised of noodles in a freshly made curry soup then topped with tender pieces of chicken, crispy fried egg noodles, coriander, onions, pickled cabbage, shallots and lime.
Vegetable Filled Roti - crisp, unleavened flat bread filled with a melange of vegetables which comes with a Thai curry dipping sauce.
Crispy Shrimp and Coriander-Filled Pastry - crisp pastry filled with chopped prawns and coriander paste.
Crispy Salt and Pepper Fried Squid with Coriander Root - crispy pieces of fried squid stir fried with salt and pepper, coriander, onions, and peppers.
Thai Style Beef with Oyster Sauce, Black Fungus and Bamboo Shoot - Silk's take on the popular Chinese beef with oyster sauce. Stir fried tender pieces of beef served with black fungus and bamboo shoots with a sprinkling of Thai kaffir lime leaves.
Over all, my palate definitely appreciated Silk's succulent, zesty and flavorsome dishes. I enjoyed most the seafood satay, the Thai style beef and surprisingly, the Thai style apple and mango salad too. It was a nice break from overdosing myself with Italian and American food. I would definitely try some of their best sellers (Phad Thai, Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Black Pepper Sauce and Mango Sticky Rice to name a few) on my next visit (which I bet will be soon!).
