Whenever I crave for some Pad Thai or just about any Thai Food for that matter, I head on over to a restaurant nearest to me to satisfy my craving. Doesn’t even matter if it tastes good. Quite the pathetic one, right? But, when I got an invitation to try the newly opened Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House, I was hoping that this new Thai food spot would be worth the travel and traffic from my place!
Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House is located at Fisher Mall along Quezon Ave. This new resto is nothing fancy compared to other posh Thai restos in the metro that I’ve already tried. In fact, it’s rather small… a place you wouldn’t even take a second look at when you pass by. But this fairly young establishment truly deserves a 2 thumbs-up from me! Why? Read on.
Sweet Chili’s kitchen is manned by a REAL Thai chef that does all the cooking… from prepping the ingredients to making the sauces to cooking! How authentic can a Thai chef be? Well, his accent easily comes through when he speaks. That authentic!
On with the dishes of Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House
Let’s start with my all time fave… Tom Yum Soup (Php205.00)
The smell of this soup reminds me of Bangkok and it makes me feel like I’m actually enjoying it there! It has shrimp, squid and fish in sweet and sour soup while the lemongrass gives it that soothing effect. My kind of soup!
King Fish in 5 Thai Herbs (Php365.00)
I only eat steamed King Fish in soy sauce. I love it so much that I can actually eat one whole order all by myself in one sitting. Sweet Chili’s fried King Fish is a winner! You just have to eat it right away if you want to enjoy it’s crispness. The fish is seasoned with 5 Thai herbs and garlic making it really tasty. The sweet & sour sauce offers an added play on flavors.
Chicken Pandan (Php265.00)
This Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House specialty is a must try. The chicken skin was crispy and seasoned all the way through. I tried it with chef’s very own sweet and sour sauce which came with it. It tasted absolutely wonderful. But, it works just as good even without the sauce!
Tofu with Minced Chicken (Php195.00)
This dish can actually serve as an appetizer or as part of your mains (if you want something light). The minced chicken on top of the tofu gave this simple dish additional texture and flavor.
Pad Thai with Egg (Php185.00)
Pad Thai is a must for me whenever I eat in a Thai resto. I love the combination of the stir-fried rice noodles with the other ingredients. Sweet Chili’s Pad Thai did not disappoint at all! Their version is wrapped in egg making it look like an omelette… but hidden inside are the usual ingredients of tofu, chopped nuts and bean sprouts.
Grilled Liempo (Php215.00)
Honestly, this grilled liempo did not taste Thai at all until you dip it in its very own lemon tamarind sauce. The zesty dipping sauce beautifully compliments the grilled liempo’s semi-sweet smoky taste.
Bagoong Rice (Php185.00)
Tangy, salty, sour with a hint of sweetness from the pork. This can be shared by 3 persons with average appetites.
This dessert will remind you of Maja Blanca but tastes better and lighter. It’s made of soft tapioca pearl and coconut cream topped with dessicated coconut in pandan leaves with a silky smooth texture.
Each dish served can be shared by 2 persons. Dishes are absolutely delicious and as you can see, Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House does not scrimp on ingredients. Indeed, this is truly more bang for your buck! Perfect for people who are working on a tight budget but wants to eat great food.
I’ve been to Thailand several times and I am so pleased that Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House remained faithful to its traditional Thai cooking and flavors. This is now my go-to place to satisfy my Pad Thai or Tom Yum fix!
