One fine weekend, we decided that we wanted to go to a non-crowded mall to have dinner and have coffee. The first thing that came to mind was either Podium or Shangrila Mall, but then we couldn't think of a specific restaurant to go to. So we decided to go to Eastwood City and agreed that we'll randomly select the restaurant once we get there.
We ended up having dinner at....
Why this place? We already miss eating Thai Food because the only one we really go to for authentic and affordable Thai food is Soms and the place is still under renovation. MyThai was an obvious choice.
Off to the food...
We decided to order the same selection we usually order from Soms and got to compare the dishes.
First stop was the Tom Yum soup.
We were both allergic to shrimp and it's quite disappointing that MyThai doesn't offer the option of choosing chicken over shrimp (unlike Soms). We still wanted to taste their Tom Yum soup version so we still went ahead and ordered it. Good thing, I always bring my allergy meds for just-in-case situations like this.
The verdict: I'm happy that at least their shrimps were big and the serving as well. But Soms wins in this category. MyThai's soup is a bit too salty for my taste.
Next stop... Red Curry (Chicken).
Is it just me or will you agree with me that the dish looks like KareKare. =\ It felt like I was tricking my tastebuds. My mind was thinking "get ready for some KareKare" so my tastebuds were expecting KareKare already. Haha!
The verdict: It was a little bit spicy, really saucy, and the vegetables were cooked just right. Soms still wins though, there's something missing when I tasted it, maybe they missed a small pinch of a certain spice, I can't pinpoint what is it though.
The Bagoong Rice...
I was happy to see that the serving can be shared by at least 2 persons. It was interesting as well that it had peanuts as part of the ingredients to be mixed with the rice. I wasn't a big fan of the chunks of onions, Arvic liked it though.
The verdict: It wins over Soms' Bagoong rice. Serving-wise and taste-wise as well (sans the onions and red chili pepper).
All in all, it was an interesting restaurant. I'm glad I gave it a try but I'm also pretty sure I won't be eagerly back sometime soon. :P Oh by the way, I loved the cabinets and white couch. :)
