Eating at the Authenthic Thai Cuisine

Just before heading up to Robinson’s Galleria mall in Ortigas Center for an early dinner, we came from San Pedro, Laguna where our business matter took place. We drive through a newly renovated east side of the Robinson's mall where some of these restaurants has been built recently. One of these cuisines has caught my attention which made me decide to quickly dine in at 8 Spices, a cuisine that serves superb authentic Thai foods. The place was about the size quite similar to some of the stand-alone restaurants in Greenhills, San Juan. It is uniquely decorated and you can tell at first glance that the atmosphere is a cozy place to go. It is modern and blended with both American and Thai cultures.

The time to sit down and get the menu took place which gave us a hard time to decide what to order, and these foods are served exactly the way it looks like in the menu. The foods we ordered came one at a time and the waiting interval was short and I was thinking that it would take around 30 minutes to complete everything.

As the usual go, the soup was served first. The “Thai Chicken With Coconut Milk” is a mild but spicy chicken soup flavored with “galangal” combined with hot chili peppers, lemon grass, lime leaves and coconut milk which creates heavenly taste.

And then came our second order; a “Stir Fried Tiger Prawn With Roasted Chili Paste” . It is served with stir fried tiger prawns, seasonal vegetables, garlic, mushrooms and carrots blended with chili sauce.

Then came the "Bagoong Fried Rice", which contains pork with honey, a minced of dried mango and onions, and a seasonal vegetable.

Our meal will not be completed without "Grilled Pork Ribs", and it contains honey served with spicy garlic sauce.

I craved for more but unfortunately my stomach was unwilling to accommodate some more of these authentic Thai foods as I have been satiated by our heavy meals. I rarely go to Thai cuisines but now it proves to me that dining in Thai restaurants are something that I should also consider alternatively. We had a great time eating at 8 Spices Thai Cuisines!
