Mangan Restaurant Food Review: Serving the Best of Kapampangan Foods Daily


Whenever I think of going on a food rampage, Pampanga will always be at the top of my list. Kapampangans are known for not scrimping on ingredients. So when one gets an invite for a Kapampangan foodie event, of course, it would be a shame if I'd say no. I had a chance to review Mangan Restaurant in its Glorietta branch. I'm no stranger to Mangan as m family and I had visited its Robinson's Galleria branch before. I remember that's how I discovered my love for Burong Hipon (fermented shrimp and rice) which the Cabalens use for dipping steamed vegetables. I know it smelled bad but the taste was absolutely fantastic! 

Interiors are good, feels like home

Soi Eat Thai Love Thai: Authentic Degustation of Thai Flavors

Soi Thai welcomes guests with a smile

One of the most common misconceptions about Thai dishes is that they're all spicy. That is absolutely not true. I recently had the opportunity to review Soi Eat Thai Love Thai in Glorietta 2 branch in Makati City. I was surprised because it has exceeded my expectations. The prices as well as food presentations were a bit upscale when compared to its sister restaurant, BKK Express which I've also had reviewed late last year. But I'm telling you, it's totally worth it. You can be assured, they do not scrimp on ingredients because 70 percent of them were flown in on a regular basis straight from Thailand. The owners do not want but to serve you authentic yet affordable Thai food and nothing less. 


Soi Eat Thai Love Thai had a lovely Asian setting which makes the ambiance all the more enjoyable for dine in customers. Soi had an extensive selection of Thai degustations which will excite your palates, especially for real foodie enthusiasts. For one, you won't need to fly to Bangkok to savor the authentic food there because Soi has brought in an authentic Thai chef to personally man over the kitchen at Soi.
