Last May 9th, me and some friends made the trek to Marikina to visit a seamstress about some dresses. Due to some hiccups in the planning, though, we were forced to retreat for a while to plan what to do next and how to get over the said boo-boo. Hence, the first thing we did was look for the closest air-conditioned food place, which so happened to be this little, unassuming nook in front of Marikina Market with a sign that declared that they served Thai food. As it turned out, we were so very thankful for the boo-boo because we wouldn't have found this gem of a place otherwise.

Having absolutely no idea on what was good to try and what was not, we basically just started picking semi-randomly from the menu, and while waiting for our food to arrive, we had some time to take in the ambiance.








And then the Thai Iced Tea arrived.



Needless to say, I was surprised at how big they were and how GOOD they were. Nice and cool, and sweet and milky. I suppose I was expecting one of those small glasses of iced tea that they normally serve in other restaurants. This, apparently was a sign on how the rest of our orders would turn out.

Thai Fried Rice and Beef Noodles


Both were HUGE. And the rice? We thought it would just be plain fried rice, but it turns out that there was meat and seafood tossed in the mix. We were all expecting that each one was good for only one person, but as it turns out, it could feed a small family, as could the rest of the things we ordered.

A beansprouts-Pho noodles mix


Spring Rolls


AND the most tender and the tastiest chicken satay I have ever tasted.


And one of us even made the mistake of ordering a set meal.

Had we known we would have a FEAST in front of us, we wouldn't have eaten breakfast that day. In the end, a group of SEVEN adults were defeated by the food, all left will popping waistlines and full bellies, and we had to concede and have the rice and the beansprouts wrapped up for take-out.

And the total bill for ALL that goodness? 1070 pesos. It IS GLORIOUS.

So, if you're ever in the Marikina area, just head for the Marikina Market, and look for the statue of the dude washing some kid's butt. Head in the direction of where the kid is facing and you're bound to run into Krung Thai. You can't miss it. Seriously.
