T - Thai Food

Thai Dinner

Thai cuisine was alien to me back then. Whenever I would see recipes for Thai dishes in culinary magazines, I seemed to stay away from it, because I cannot tell if I would like it or not.

When K and I were in Baguio City, I had my first taste of Thai food through the Arharn Thai Kitchen, a small and new restaurant just outside of the Chalet Tepeyac, where K and I stayed at. We had no plans of eating there from the get go, but that day, I got really cold and was shivering because of the chilly weather in the city, and we just stayed indoors as the day turned into night. It was already about 8pm when K woke up from a nap, and because the chalet was quite far from the heart of the city, finding a place to eat at was a puzzle for us, so we just decided to eat Thai.

This plate had: Chicken Pandan with peanut sauce, shrimp cakes, and a cup of bagoong rice (shrimp paste flavored rice). It was love at first bite. Well, it's not far from Philippine cuisine, so maybe that is why I liked it.

Now that I know I like Thai food, I am looking forward in eating more of it - through the different Thai restaurants in the Metro.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
