Mango Tree

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - THAI -

WHY GO

Mango Tree’s menu em­bod­ies the many-splen­doured essence of Thai cui­sine. Each aro­matic dish starts with a star­tling flavour and ends with an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of a new twist.

TATLER TIPS

A good start­ing point is the Golden Feast— a Thai smor­gas­bord of fish and shrimp cakes, pork and chicken sa­tay, and spring rolls with ac­com­pa­ny­ing dip­ping sauces. The phad phong ka ree or stir-fried mud crab meat in yel­low curry is per­fec­tion. For the car­ni­vore, the see krong moo yang nam phung, grilled pork spare ribs with herb sea­son­ing are fin­ger-lick­ing good. The tart, spicy and salty herb dip­ping sauce may have been meant for the ribs but it paired off nicely with the crunchy veg­gies. The khao pad kai (fried rice with prawns) melded with the ex­cel­lent dishes. A sim­ple but ef­fec­tive fi­nale to a su­perb repast is the sakoo nam Ka-Ti, warm sago topped with rich co­conut cream.
