Food Trip #16: Krua Thai Davao

After the sumptuous lunch and awesome bonding moments with the Davao Bloggers.  We went malling at NCCC and SM until we got tired and proceeded to Bo’s Cafe along Torres Avenue.  Over coffee we were trying to find out which restaurant was open that New Year’s night for dinner.  We were still undecided when we left Bo’s only to find out that we were right beside Krua Thai Restaurant.  And it was just timely because Krua Thai was celebrating their Sate & Meat Festival till January 31, 2011.  It was a pleasant surprise to discover that they also offer Combo Meals at affordable prices.

We ordered their Seafood Platter (279.00)

This included Sweet & Spicy Squid, Fish Fillet in Red Curry

Squid in Basil Sauce and Fish Fillet in Tamarind Sauce

This should be a delight for anyone who is on a diet

The squid viands are tender while the fish fillet tasted fresh

The good thing about this platter is that there is no seafood after-taste

We also ordered the Chicken Platter (229.00)

You will love the Chicken Pandan and Garlic Chicken

Both viands are crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside

What surprised me was the Chicken with mushrooms in Oyster Sauce

It was definitely chicken but it tasted like cream dory fish – awesome!

The aromatic flavor of the Chicken in Panang Curry was also a delight

Since we were a group of seven, we also ordered the Beef Platter (299.00)

I will rank this the lowest in terms of presentation

Three of the viands have their sauces overflowing thus spoiling its individual taste

These are the Beef Spicy Salad, Beef in Panang Curry and Beef in Oyster Sauce

The saving grace is the delicious Fried Beef with generous sprinkling of Sesame Seeds

I am a great fan of Bagoong (Shrimp Paste) Rice

We had to order two platters or we will end up killing each other

I must say that Krua Thai has perfected this dish which in itself is filling enough

That dash of kalamansi was a first for me  and it brought out a distinct taste to it

I am actually salivating while I’m writing this now

  • BAGOONG RICE! YUmmy! The curry had the right amount of spice for me. And the squid dishes were very goooood.

    Balik tayo soon. 😉

    • mare i think kaya mong gawin ang bagoong rice… hehehehe!

  • Loved the beef curry! Thanks for that dinner treat, GF!

    • gf san nga yung kainan na na-mention ni lyle? puntahan natin yun the next time i’m there…

      • Sa Karlyn’s ba? Masarap ang steak ala probre nila. Pang-datu ang lasa! Hehe…

  • Kulang sa anghang! Could have been perfect. Giving the whole thing a score of 7/10.

    • kasi hindi ko inorder as such. you have to tell them na mas gusto mong maanghang, you beach! as if hindi naubos ang isang seafood platter sayo.

  • Orman, may Thai resto rin sa La Cassandra 🙂

    • gay — alam ko and we should pursue our cooking together plans! dalhin ko ang dalawang bubwits ko so that pasta can play with them…

  • My family eats there once in a while and I really didn’t like the place until that New Year’s Day dinner.

    I guess my brother and I have different tastes. He orders for us whenever we eat there and I found the food to be just OK.

    But my rating of the resto changed that night. Their seafood combo platter is heaven-sent. The chicken combo platter was really good too. That bagoong rice is a must-order.

    Thanks for the New Year’s treat, Orman. I had a lot of fun.

    • lyle — this only proves that i am good company! char! hahahahaha! always a pleasure to be with you!
