Here's my first post and I'm making this public so you would have an idea what type of content I will be posting on this site.
I have been working from home since the pandemic started and have stayed home for the most part. Now that the restrictions are easing up a bit, I normally look for places that I can go to to get some fresh air, get some nice view and try some nice (affordable!) food.
I'm also very picky with the places that I try to visit since COVID is still out there and we have kids at home. I see to it that I avoid crowded malls, restaurants and make sure that the places I go to follow the standard health protocols.
Recently, The Podium has been a go-to place for me. I love how they have an Al fresco dining space on the 6th floor and you can order food from some of the restaurants. There's a lot to choose from!
Not only the Al Fresco dining, but The Podium also has a food court known as "The Corner Market Food Hall"( 2/F, The Podium, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong). The food stalls/shops offer different types of cuisines, my favorite being Easy, Tiger (Thai Food). My go-to? Their Thai Milk tea! I always make sure to visit their stall and order mine, the taste is so authentic! They offer a decent amount of Thai set dishes that ranges from 200php - 300php (which is really not bad!), their dishes are also served with Tom Yum Soup, Green Papaya salad and Steamed Rice. I recently brought my mom there and she liked the food and the Tom Yum soup! As a foodie, this is a must try! So far all the dishes that I have tried have generous servings and are really tasty!
Be sure to follow their Instagram for their menu and promos!
Zomato (Menu): HERE!
They also are available through Grab Food and Food Panda!
Here are some of the dishes I have tried.
Delicious Thai Milk tea (90php)! Not too sweet, unlike other Thai Milk Tea's I have tried.
Grilled Chicken (210php): Chicken was cooked really nicely, it was soft, juicy and flavorful!Thai Fresh Spring rolls (140php):
Pad Thai Chicken Noodles (145php)
I will be reviewing more stalls as I have also tried some of the Asian Food Shop at The Podium!
