Lunch at Thai Kitchen: Robinson’s First Bloggers Event Part 1

Part 2: Glamorized Scavenger Hunt
Part 3: Finally! My Special Finds

Last Sunday, August 21, 2010, Jeffrey Siy of invited me and my sister to experience the opening of Robinson’s All Out Clearance Sale at Robinson’s Galleria. At first, I was having second thoughts about going since I’m running a predominantly art education blog and I was scheduled to pay Manila Art 2010 a visit on the same day. I was thinking, “Lagare!” It was my sister, who got a separate invitation, that confirmed our attendance.

The first part of this event was lunch at Thai Kitchen with about 15 or so other bloggers. I’ve been a hermit for such a long time that I only know Animetric (whom I shared an anime community with in the 90s). My sister knows some of them since they belong to fashion communities. I was glad to have met quite a few other bloggers even though we all seem to cover a variety of fields.

Anyway, we partook of a scrumptious buffet. I think they do still have the buffet on regular days, which costs about P250 per head, if I remember correctly. Not bad!

Whenever I go to Thai restaurants, I always make it a point to tell the waiters that I cannot stand spicy dishes. In other words, I always go for mild. I’m actually glad I didn’t have to specify anything this time around, since the dishes served here are already mild. If you want them spicier, all you need to do is pile on the condiments.

Anyway, here are some of the photos.

Yummy fish.

Fried spring rolls.

Chicken pandan. Or pandan chicken? Anyhoo, it’s chicken wrapped in pandan leaves.

Selection of fresh fruits.

What I ate.

Dessert! Those sticky rice balls are goooood.

    i remember this resto. good food! sulit ang price! plus if i remember right, the place is rather small and is always full…but the good thing is the resto staff are very attentive of the buffet. they make sure that the food never runs out and you don't end up waiting for a refill of the dishes. 🙂

    That food looks great! However it's my habit to ask for it very spicy. 🙂

    It's my first time to eat in that restaurant. It was a nice experience.

    The only spice I can take is wasabi. I pile it on. Haha!

    Finally able to try this today. Satisfied my curiosity, but not my
    palate. The menu is “Thai” inspired, but not Thai enough, judging from
    the (lack of) spices. Dishes lack the characteristic “sting”. It
    approximates the thai style. Their mini Chicken pandan is one that no
    self-respecting Thai will own up to. It tastes like it was marinated
    for 2 minutes, then steamed or baked. Very bland. The salads are ok.
    It’s sad to think that’s probably what the bargain price is worth. Ok
    lang sana to charge more if it’s worth it. Some of the soups are cold!
    is it so difficult to light up those chafing dishes? It certainly can
    fill up your tummy – but will I go back? Probably not.

    Hm. I wonder if they made it extra yummy when we were there. We were all bloggers in there. Thanks for the feedback!
