Eats - - PASIG -

The name Nav used by the restau­rant Nav Mod­ern Thai Cui­sine is the diminu­tive for Naval, the sur­name of two of the part­ners, young sib­lings Marlo and Janus—a non-Thai name quite !tting for the restau­rant’s un­usual take on the usual Thai food, as well as for the in­spired creations by Nav’s third part­ner, Chef Fran­cis Lim, for­merly of Peo­ple’s Palace. Nav, a rel­a­tively new haunt in the Kapi­tolyo area, is al­ready known for its Thai fare re­li­ables like Tom Yum Goong, Pad Thai, Thai Sticky Rice, and Wok Fried Squid, as well as its twists and vari­a­tions such as the Nav’s Pomelo Salad, Grilled Stuffed Squid with White Shrimp, Whole Crispy Tilapia with Chili Spiked Tamarind Sauce, and the fa­vored Son-in-law Eggs. Part of the var­ied menu are two of Chef Lim’s orig­i­nal creations, Le­mon­grass Pork and Yel­low Crab Curry. The spici­ness of the dishes may be eased to suit in­di­vid­ual pref­er­ences. Some dishes are slightly tweaked to suit the Filipino’s sweet tooth. Nav’s com­pact in­te­ri­ors—with its clean, mod­ern lines and black­boards list­ing the best-sellers and the day’s spe­cial­ties— pro­mote ca­sual, com­fort­able din­ing. A mez­za­nine can ac­com­mo­date an ad­di­tional 25 to 30 din­ers. Plus points are the big serv­ings, Thai-in­spired cock­tails, ex­ten­sive bar list, free WiFi and park­ing.
