My Food Trips is a blog site for my food trips around the country, and more. I started writing on Multiply, but I found a need to create a singular spot for all my food trips- whether rants or raves. So, I hope you enjoy what you read and see, as I share what I've tasted and seen lately.
Thanks and enjoy reading and eating!!

The Onesimus's Great Barong Sale brought us to SM Megamall, one fine Saturday. When lunch time came, we found Jajutak Thai Restaurant- a small, but brightly lit place at the ground floor just near the Almon Marina.
The interiors were done well- it was brightly lit, with very nice Thai accessories. Feeling adventurous, Mark and I got in right away to try Thai food. It's not very spacious though... around more or less 8 to 10 tables only.
white, violet and bits of green all around
For our drinks, we had their specialty Thai Iced Tea (P70) and the then sick-with-a -cold Mark, a Calamansi Juice(P62). The Iced tea was a very strong brew, and was softened only by the crushed ice and the condensed milk. The milk made the drink look orange-y. It was really good though. I liked it. I wonder if the Thai Iced Coffee is just as great...

For starters, we ordered The Sampler (P198)- a set of three kinds of appetizers. There were crab cakes, fish cakes, and the fried vegetable roll. They were so good with the Tom Yung Goong (P195) soup. The Tom Yum Goong is a sour seafood soup filled with mushrooms, prawns, cashews, cilantro, tomatoes and lime. The sourness is derived from the citrus fruits placed inside.

The only "sablay" among the orders was the Pad Thai Goong ( P180). Supposedly Thai's national delicacy, the noodles were overcooked, the cashew overload not toasted enough. Simply put, it just didn't go well with everything else.

But it was an interesting place. Seems like there's a lot more to discover here.
