This is for the hungry travelers who crave for authentic Thai food while in Manila.
There’s actually a place where you can get some: Thai Dara Bangkok Streetfood restaurant, operated by a Thai expat/chef.
Lots of choices to have, from the traditional tom yum soup, to (my favorite so far) pomelo salad with shrimps and squid, pad thai noodles (one of the best pad thai in Manila), spring rolls, and sassy fish (fried dory topped with spicy green mango salad).
They have two branches, one in Granada Street in Quezon City (just a few minutes from Greenhills; check map), and another one in Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig.
The restaurant (I’ve visited the one in Granada Street) have a homey, cozy feel to it, and the prices are reasonable.
