Remember Jatujak? This Thai restaurant was located on the fourth floor of The Block, SM City North EDSA. My colleagues turned friends and I frequent this restaurant because we used to always watch a movie in this building. Thus, it became our go-to restaurant when we crave for Thai food. Jatujak has several offerings and they are all good. We specifically love their Thai Spring Rolls, Pad Thai, and Bagoong Rice. Also, I remember drinking the best Thai Milk Tea here. But that was years ago. So when my family and I went to watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I decided to visit the restaurant again. To my surprise, it’s been replaced by another Thai restaurant called Easy, Tiger – Thai Food with a Kick!
One Sunday morning, my family and I decided to search for a nice restaurant at the mall. Sure, malls are busy on a weekend but if you plan to eat after hearing the mass then it’s the best place to be. They basically have it all! So after finding a parking space at SM North EDSA’s new building, we did a little walking and ended up at a place called Tamarind: Taste of Thai. We’ve been to this mall countless times but that was the first time we passed by that area. Thus, we didn’t hesitate to try it.
Name a person who doesn’t like mangoes. Can’t think of anyone? That’s because everyone loves mangoes. But if you ask them what’s their favourite mango drink, dessert or if they like it as it is, then you will definitely get a number and a variety of answers. And once you hear them, make sure to tell them all about Hui Lau Shan. Not familiar? Well, Hui Lau Shan is a dessert and refreshment brand from Hong Kong known for its mango creations. In fact, they have over 300 stores globally – China, Malaysia, South Korea, Macau, Canada, Taiwan, Paris, Vietnam and, Melbourne. And now, they are in the Philippines.
The first thing that comes to mind when you say Conti’s is their Mango Bravo cake. No one can blame them because it’s really good. A great proof is that almost all the cakes I see at parties and surprise birthday celebrations are from Conti’s. But honestly, it’s been a while since I dined at their restaurant. Conti’s do offer several mouth-watering dishes. So for my Abuelita’s birthday, I decided to treat her at Conti’s Bakeshop & Restaurant.
I have never been to any Zark’s Burgers let alone tried any of their offerings. But after shopping during SM North EDSA’s sale, we received a free treat from SM x BDO – free nachos! Who doesn’t like nachos, right? Plus, it is free and I’m curious why a huge number of people lined up during Zark’s burger promo. Do you remember seeing the news? I sure did! So how was it, you ask? First here are the food ordered.
