a tale of two thai places. first – just thai at the fort

In eating in manila on September 2, 2010 at 11:15 am

managed to wheedle my boss into a free lunch and he suggested this place near our office. Just Thai is in the forbestown complex, and is part of a strip of restaurants that don’t all seem to open yet. the restaurant has around 10 tables making it very  cozy.

as with any thai place i’m trying for the first time, i started with the tom yum goong

it was tasty enough but the flavors weren’t really that bold – and for P150 for an individual bowl it came with only 1 shrimp.

then we split a pad thai

this i enjoyed more. the texture of the noodles was just right. though the flavors were also slightly mild, they didn’t seem diluted. and at P180, it was fair value especially relative to the tom yum.

unlikely that i’ll eat here again unless i have to, but for those working in the area, it’s an option to consider.
