Thai Dara- Revisited

Once again, we visited Thai Dara for dinner using our P300 voucher from Ensogo.

The place was surprisingly empty on a Friday night so we got ourselves a seat without calling for reservations.

We got to take pictures of the whole place freely since there were no other diners inside.

I browsed through their menu and got the usual dish we always order in Thai restaurants.

Pad Thai Noodle (P209) and Bagoong Rice (P189)

Nothing really changed about their Pad Thai Noodle. It's still the same Pad Thai we used to order. It's nice that they were able to retain the same quality and taste of their Pad Thai I raved about before. 

Their Bagoong rice still lacked the Bagoong taste that we were expecting. The rice was quite dry too. I loved the small pieces of dried shrimps though.

This time we did not ordered their Crispy Tofu but had their Bangkok Spring Rolls (P139) instead.

D and I both loved it! It was crispy and chunky at the same time. The sweet and tangy sauce tickled our taste buds. It is now officially included in our "must order" list in Thai Dara! :)

We wanted to order something different that time so we had their Green Curry Chicken (P189)

It was served in a small dish with chunks of chicken and eggplant. It was a little spicy with an herb-y flavor.   Best to eat it with rice to balance out the flavor of the curry. 

This time we also ordered for their best-selling drink Thai Iced Tea (P55).

It tasted like milk tea but was not too heavy to drink. We found it a little sweet though but I guess adding a little water into it would help lessen its sweetness.

With these amount of food every weekends, we would have gained a lot of weight before Christmas arrives.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to discover a person
    that truly knows what they are discussing online.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    A lot more people have to check this out and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you aren't more popular because you certainly have

    Mass Handle was his personal merchandise and was based mostly on the many million dollar merchandise launches that he has completed.

    An example of such strategy would be to dominate the search results from Google, build some links,
    find some highly profitable niches, extract lots of commission, and
    attract lots of traffic from different search engines.
    The training itself is inclusive, continuing and modernized
    because the Internet alters over time.
