We decided to have dinner at BF Home Sucat tonight to celebrate my wife's birthday. A VT buddy recommended that we eat at Tito Chef Restaurant along President Avenue. Unfortunately, there was no available parking and the place looked full. So we decided to cruise along the avenue looking for an alternative place to eat.
My wife didn't fancy any of the restaurants along President Avenue but said she saw a Thai restaurant and wanted to try that instead. As I was driving, I told her to tell me if we are near the restaurant so I can slow down to where it is. Surprisingly, it was just beside Tito Chef Restaurant and there were available parking spaces. No longer thinking twice, we immediately parked in front of it.
I am not a thai food person, but would have pizza and mexican dishes, so I cannot compare it with food from other thai restaurants. I love bagoong rice and with a few spoonfuls I had eaten, I liked their version. But the wife disagreed and said that the bagoong used was a little too "fishy" tasting.
I think this was the first time I tried pad thai. The portion was just enough for me and the peanut, chicken, noodles and veggies complemented each other very well.
Our daughter had the chicken kao pad but I also had a taste of it. It reminded of nasi goreng that I had at Saucemate except that this one, as I've said earlier, was not spicy. My daughter complained that there were few chicken pieces that what was left for her was the rice.
We stayed for a little while, watching people come and go but the restaurant still remained half-filled. The service was quick, the price is just right and the food was also alright as far as I am concerned.
