One of the most well-known restaurants in the Diliman area is Muang Thai, as in after mag-simba lahat ng pamilya doon kakain para makatikim ng near-authentic Thai food. It’s been in business for 22 years and keeps getting better especially with a new menu composed of old favorites and 14 new items na sure magiging in demand and guaranteed pampabusog. Here are the ones you should definitely check out:
Bro, hindi siya basic. The vegetable mixture is wrapped like mini tacos, so you will taste and see every bite. May sawsawan pang sweet and sour chili. (Oo, seryoso chili sauce siya.)
Yum Pla Dook Fu
Kung plano mo kumain ng marami (oo naman), you should check out this appetizer. Feeling healthy ka pa with the green mango salad with the chunks of fried catfish.
Lahat na ata sinali nila dito. Pomelo na dinurog tapos may coconut syrup, roasted nuts, char-grilled shrimp, and fried shrimp heads on the side. Kumpleto mehn!
Tom Yum Talay
Can you imagine milk tea if it were soup? This is it, wala lang siyang milk or tea pero sweet siya. This tom yum is filled with charred shrimps, clams, squid, and fish fillet.
A mixture of Filipino and Thai that features slices of crispy pork belly and your choice of curry sauce—green, red, or panang.
Spicy Basil Mixed Seafood
Not only does this have shrimp, squid, clams, and fish mixed with some spicy basil, but may nasama pang fried garlic and tumeric. Kaya mo ba ang anghang ng dagat?
Mango Sticky Rice
What better way to end your meal than with a dessert that tastes like home? Glutinous rice and ripe mango, with coconut sauce to give that Pinoy feel.
