I was reading a newspaper (yes I occasionally read newspapers when I’m at my mom’s & I have nothing else to do. She doesn’t have INTERNET! @_@) when I suddenly chanced upon this..
|In this spin on the fairy tale, Hansel & Gretel are now bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. As the fabled Blood Moon approaches, the siblings encounter a new form of evil that might hold a secret to their past.|
|Even as a child I loved to read, and I’m so grateful my mom provided me with plenty of books to amuse myself with.
She would buy me boxes & boxes of complete series from vendors who knocked on her door. :)
I grew up to fairy tales such as Hansel & Gretel. My heroes! <3
So I arranged for a movie night yesterday. And since I’m so in love with BF in paranaque lately, I wanted to give SONGKRAN a try. Yup, thai cuisine this time. I read it from a book that a mommy friend gave me as an advance birthday gift. For the complete Songkran food & price list, click HERE.
|Read Daphne Osena’s short post on EAT OUT NOW here. 250 php at all National Book Store branches nationwide.
Like all food bloggers, Alicia Siy has some hits & misses.
Different tastes for different folks. But I’m having fun trying out her recommendations one at a time.
|See? Only 1 car when we arrived. ;P
Credit cards accepted! m/
|This is actually an upgrade than what I was imagining it to be.
A blog I read said it was a house converted by a Thai national into a restaurant, so imagine my delight to see this structure instead of a dilapidated, outdated house! m/
|Outdoor seating. I loved the mural -so colorful!
But I also hate mosquitoes.
So no brainer -indoor dining for me! ;))
|Indoor seating. Nice, clean & SPACIOUS just the way I like it.
A quiet, relaxed dinner. <3
Of course, empty could also mean their food sucks hehe.
But having a Thai national as the owner, what could possibly go wrong, right? ;)
|Anything THAI will never go wrong in my book.
Give me any combination of chili & sour and I’m good to go! m/
Their prices were pretty okay too. Nothing above 270 php (save for 1 beef dish). Yahoo! ;)
Our bill was just 2k! m/
|Condiments & spices.
But all my dishes were already bursting with such flavors that I didn’t need these at all. :)
|Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad – Yum Pla Duk Foo
Catfish flakes, green mango, Thai salad dressing 200 php
The sourness of the mango just hits the spot! m/
|Shrimp Cakes – Too Mun Goong

Could have been bigger & fatter & fuller. But hey, with the price? I’ll stop complaining! ;P
Loved it with the tangy sauce.

|The servers are nice & warm too! <3
All smiling faces & so attentive.

|So, whenever we eat out with another family, multiply our orders by TWO (or three.. or four! LOL).
Because that’s how much we love to EAT!
And boy am I glad to have found people who love the same things we do! ;)
