One of my recent discoveries in BF Paranaque is the recently opened Siam Noodle House. Located at the corners of President’s and Aguirre Avenues, Siam Noodle House gives you a fresh perspective on how noodles should taste like. The noodles that we order in fastfoods are actually not very far from the ordinary bland taste of it.
Entering Siam Noodle House gave me a glimpse of what it was like when I was in Bangkok, Thailand. Although not completely designed to depict Thailand, the interior of Siam Noodle House has a more Balinese feel into it and is exquisitely designed to make you forget the hustles and bustles of the metro.
We indulged in 15 authentic-tasting Thai dishes. I opted to make a review of three of Siam Noodle House’s best and choose one of their fantastic desserts.
3. KUAITIAO KROK KAPI (Shrimp Paste Surprise Noodles)
This noodle soup variety is not quite the ordinary noodle soup that we order in fast food restaurants, as the latter offers a bland taste, which still needs seasoning to appreciate. The Kuaitiao Krok Kapi is authentic Thai noodle soup at its finest. Served in a steaming bowl, the Kuaitiao Krok Kapi is truly yummy, flavorful and mouth watering.
2. POH PIA TOD (Thai Spring Rolls)
Although I an not so much of a Thai food expert, I do believe that this dish is not so far away from Filipino favorite ‘Lumpiang Shanghai’ except for the fact that this Thai variety contains glass noodles, possibly bean sprouts, ground pork or beef and mushrooms.
1. YUM WOON SEN (Glass Noodle Salad)
A must for me when I get back to dine there again, Siam Noodle House’s Glass Noodle Salad is one of their best dishes. A feast for the eyes and the Filipino palate, this Bangkok style clear noodle dish is laden with colorful veggies, mushrooms and peanuts.
For dessert, I prefer the Tah Khos over the Thai traditional Banana Fritters (turon) and Sticky Rice with Mango choices. Overall, the three was actually good.
If you plan to go and dine to your hearts content in Siam Noodle House, the restaurant is accessible via SM BF Paranaque – Labasan route, or through the BF Paranaque – Lopez and BF International – Tropical Avenue routes.
