It was becoming a somewhat gray afternoon. All that day’s activities just sort of drowned me, and made me feel colorless. Good thing Thai food was there to the rescue! And what better resto to go to than no other than Mango Tree Bistro. Serving up good Thai cuisine, this world-renowned restaurant has added color in the metro with its good food.
I really like how dim the place is with splashes of colored pillows placed in the couches. Its dimness adds to that bistro feel. It was my first time dining at their Trinoma branch, and was surprised at how big the place was. Their branch over at Greenbelt is quite small compared to this.
So, what’s good as an afternoon snack?
I would recommend having this: Thai Iced Tea. It’s really refreshing and milky. I’ve always had a soft spot for Thai iced tea just because milk is included. It can be a bit sweet for others but for me, it’s a good palate cleanser for their meals.
The shot glass contains syrup so that you can manually adjust the sweetness of this drink. I wasn’t a fan of this.
This was one good Phad Thai. And good for one only. My companions and I were able to catch their Afternoon Noodle Fest where this was sold at only P150. This comes with free Lemongrass Iced Tea (hence, the drink above), and is only sold from 2PM to 5PM. Even though the regular serving was downsized, flavor was still the same.
Popularly known as Pandan Chicken, the chicken meat was very tender and tasted good sans the tamarind sauce. To add some sweet flavor in, do add the sauce.
Their grilled pork spare ribs with honey was a win for me! The meat was very tender that you could easily separate it from its bones. It had this sweet tinge that further highlights the flavor of the pork.
So, my somewhat dull afternoon soon turned to an energized and productive one all thanks to this bistro. It’s one place where you can get energizing food, refreshing drinks, and just plain hang out. 🙂
