Wifey and I are not avid fans of uncommon foreign cuisine. So far, we’ve developed love for American, Chinese and Italian dishes, but we’re cautious in trying out food from other countries.
However, because of the numerous positive reviews that we have read, we decided to try Bangkok Wok, a Thai restaurant in Robinsons Cybergate Davao.
The place was spiffy, and its interior design reminded me of an Asian fine dining atmosphere.
The menu choices were written in Thai, although each item had an English description of the dish. We made sure to try their house specialties, so we ordered Gai Hor Bai Toey (chicken in pandan leaves), Pla Mug Kratiem Prig Thai (squid with garlic, pepper and cilantro) and Moo Sate (Thai-style grilled pork strips).
Surprisingly, we enjoyed the food! The flavors of Thailand were definitely present in each dish, but at a comfortable amount suited for beginners like us.
- The aroma of pandan leaves seeped through the deep-fried chicken.
- Wifey loved the strong flavor of garlic and spices coating the sweet and perfectly soft squid cuts.
- I cannot get enough of the unique peanut sauce drizzled over the pepper-rich grilled pork strips.
Sure, the price was quite steep for our usual food fare. However, with the restaurant’s sophisticated interiors and delectable dishes, Bangkok Wok has given us an opportunity to love Thai food.
