silk: thai cuisine

I have always loved food. Lots of it. And I'm someone who is adventurous when it comes to satisfying my taste buds. Sure I could never go wrong with classic buffalo wings, a cheeseburger, or some alfredo pasta. But I've always been drawn to trying other cuisine too.

Lucky me, because my parents both work as flight attendants for Philippine Airlines so they were able to share with us the love of travel and consequently, love of international cuisine! :)

Aaaah... Thai food. Just the mention of those two words, I could already taste the tom yum soup and thai iced tea in my mouth. *drool*
Thai food is definitely up there on my 'favorite cuisine' list (along with Italian & Japanese)!

I heard from my friend Noelle about Silk Thai Cuisine. And I have to say I'm excited to try it! It actually used to be Thai at Silk Resto but was relaunched to introduce new dishes and a new look!


Located at the Serendra lifestyle mall in Fort Bonifacio, Silk is a restaurant with cozy and chic
interiors. Whether youʼre having a date, a family meal or just having lunch with your friends, it is
the perfect place to leisurely enjoy delicious and mouthwatering Thai food.

Wow! these interiors look so cozy!

I love how they used pink and green with Thai inspired ornaments and design to lessen the in-your-face vibe of too traditional Thai decor.

The Silk menu is made up of traditional Thai cuisine, in which a full meal not only acquaints you
with the various spices and flavors of Asia, it also allows you to enjoy a balance of the four
fundamental taste flavors of Thai cuisine – sweet, spicy, salty and sour.

Start off with the traditional Thai soup of Tom Yum Talay, which is a sour-spicy seafood soup with
hints of galangal, lemon grass and coriander. Try the Silk Appetizer Selection that is a mélange of
the restaurantʼs different appetizers – the bestselling Thai Spring Rolls, Tung Tong or Crispy
Shrimp and Coriander Pastry, Grilled Pork wrapped in Betel Leaf, and the delectable Chicken
Satay served with Thai Curry Sauce.

For seafood enthusiasts, try our new Seafood Satay which are marinated skewers of Prawn,
Squid and Snapper fillets that come with a delightful dipping sauce of palm vinegar and various
condiments, and the famous Pomelo and Shrimp Salad, which will surely transport you to the
streets and markets of Thailand.

Of course, having a Thai meal will not be complete without a taste of curry. For those who do not
like spicy food, the Green Chicken Curry is perfect for you, although all dishes may be adjusted to
your personal spice level preference. Try the Roast Duck in Red Curry and the tender, stewedfor-
hours Beef Shank in Mussaman Curry.

For the main course, Silk has an extensive set of dishes that offer lots of chicken, beef, seafood
and vegetables. For crab lovers, the Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Black Pepper Sauce is a
must and feast on the new Crab dish as well (cooked in 3 ways – Crab with Egg Curry, Crab with
Black Pepper Sauce and Garlic Crab). For sweet and sour flavor enthusiasts we have also
added a new dish to the menu - Thai Style Sweet and Sour Lapu Lapu.

No need to wonder about Thailandʼs most popular of noodles and rice dishes - Silkʼs Phad Thai
and Bagoong Rice are one of the best in the metro.

For those who love sweet endings – cap off your meal with the Mango Sticky Rice or the housemade
ice creams of Durian, Coconut and Mango.

Last but not least, to fully enjoy your lunch or dinner out, Silk has a pleasant wine selection that
pairs well with the flavors of Thai Food, a full bar service and an extensive list of cocktails which
include Pandan Martinis, Lemongrass Martinis, and Silkʼs own Ginger Zinger. Enjoy Happy Hour
from 6pm-8pm everyday.

wow, these look yummy.

peeps enjoying their fill of yummy Thai cuisine!

And wait to see what my food experience will be once I get to try them!!
No kidding, I could taste the tom yum right now...

  1. A carpet quality is highly chosen by its per square inch work, and silk carpets are a class apart. Premium silk carpets in Dubai have a global fan base & virtually every shopping festival could don’t be imagined without the silk carpets. Amazingly high end and wonderful, these carpets are so valuable for our houses.
