Interior of Som's Noodel House

It was cheap alright. That I can proudly say. But the quality of the food? Let's say - for a cheap affordable restaurant - what do you expect? I'm not complaining that I wasn't full - because I was so full - it's just that the dishes that we had sort of had a similar taste.

Spring Rolls - I liked it, I especially liked the sauce! My Panget however is not a fan of Spring Rolls - but I guess he did enjoy them as he also ate most of the pieces.

Tom Yum Soup - I was expecting it to be fiery hot! But fortunately - it was just alright, two complaints though - it tasted more sweet than spicy, and the shrimp - well, they were overdone (the skin was kind of hard to pull away from the meat)

Pad Thai - This for me was the worst Pad Thai ever! It looked good but it tasted like ketcup and consisted of only - tofu, noodle, bean sprouts and eggs. That's it - No meats and seafood - nada.

Red Curry Beef
- I loved the taste of the curry - it was just right, although the server said that red curry was supposed to be the hottest of them all. The beef slices were really small - it was overpowered by the slices of Okra. I guess that was the extender. Did I already mention that I loved the curry sauce?

For these four dishes and a can of Coke Light - our total bill amounted to Php445.00 - not bad right? Yeah, I guess - since the servings were not small - they would probably feed 4 people, we even had to bring home a portion of the dishes.

Verdict? It wasn't as authentic as I hoped it would be. I would probably give the Carinderia Style/Branch a try - just to see which is better.

A funny thing though - when I asked the server if the cook was Thai - he smiled and said that the cook was Pinoy, but the father of the owner is Thai!

Figures.
