My Thai Kitchen - BGC

Another cuisine that I truly enjoy eating is Thai food. Thai food is known to be mostly strong and spicy, but more than that, it also serves you with an accord of flavors. Most Thai dishes have complex flavors and each hits all four corners of your taste buds: sweet, salty, sour, and spicy. I think it’s one of the most distinct and refined among the Asian cuisines. This can probably stem from the fact that Thailand it is the only country in South East Asia which was not colonized by Europeans.

Sure, it has influences by neighboring countries due to trading during ancient times. But Thai food is unique and innate. Unlike Filipino cuisine that can be defined as a fusion of all sorts because of so many influences from all around Asia and the Western world. It is only in recent years that Thai cuisine has evolved but unquestionably it still stays true to its roots.

So whenever I get the chance to eat Thai food, I grab it. One time I didn’t feel like eating at the office cafeteria, so I went out for lunch and checked out the Thai restaurant at the ground floor of where I used to work. The restaurant is called My Thai Kitchen and is owned by the same company as Pho Hoa (Vietnamese resto) and Mangan (Filipino restaurant). My Thai actually offers both Vietnamese and Thai food. Not similar cuisines but both very flavorful. But I wasn’t feeling Vietnamese food, so I went for their Thai offerings.

Kaeng Gai – chicken pieces in green curry. The curry had the right amount of spicyness to it and it was good. My only problem with it is that the price doesn’t equate the amount of serving. I find it too pricey for how much they serve me. With only a few pieces chicken strips, the price should be less than the printed price on their menu.

Cha Yen – aka Thai iced milk tea. I can’t explain enough how much I love Thai milk tea. It’s yummy and refreshing. I love that it tasted like the authentic ones I’ve drink every day when I visited in Bangkok. Thai Milk Tea is on the stronger tea flavors out there and that’s just how I like my milk teas.

Khao Neaw Mamuang – sticky rice with mangoes and ice cream. Ok, I am biased to this dessert; it is one of the best desserts that I’ve ever tasted in my entire life. I almost cried the moment I ate my first authentic one in Bangkok. My Thai Kitchen’s version was huge and can already feed 2 people. It had a yummy after-taste that I can’t really put my finger on it. The coconut sauce was incorporated with the rice and there were plenty pieces of mango cubes and lastly, it's topped with super thick and not too sweet. One of the best versions of mango sticky rice I’ve tried.

My Thai Kitchen has an upscale beautiful interior and abundant Thai and Vietnamese artwork scattered all over. The store is very spacious with high ceiling and I just love the glass walls as it makes natural come in and I find that relaxing and dramatic at the same time. But what will catch your attention is the green wall on the left side when you enter the establishment. It’s interspersed with dozens of Vietnamese conical hats, rice winnowers (bilaos) and hand-painted ceramic plates.

Besides my only complaint of the small serving of their curry dish, basically, all is good with this restaurant. The service crews were attentive, and I like that my order is freshly cooked, served to you hot (for dishes) and cold (for drinks and desserts) and all tasted well. Next time I’ll try their Vietnamese offerings.
