Marnie's Thai Birthday

Santi (DC) told us that Dusit Thani Hotel (formerly Dusit Nikko)
was renovated and that he had dinner at it's famous
Benjarong Royal Thai Restaurant...

Marnie thought that since she wants to celebrate her birthday differently, this would be a great place to treat our coffee/travel friends because we have plans of visiting Thailand in November... So this might be considered as a sampler for most of us who haven't been to Bangkok...

I loved its spacious lobby...

I loved its spiral staircase...

I loved Benjarong's interior...

I loved the food...

Pad Thai Gung
Thai Rice Noodles with Prawns, Egg, Bean Curd and Bean Sprouts
(Php 420.00)

Yam Som O

Pomelo Salad with Chicken and Shrimp
(Php 180.00)

Thord Man Gung

Deep Fried Shrimp Cake with Light Curry Flavor
(Php 400.00)

Steamed Thai Rice

Served in Dinner Plates covered with Cone-shaped Banana leaf

Thai Iced Tea

We also had their famous soup, the Tom Yam Gung, around Php 320.00, their version of our Sinigang, a really sour hot soup, a little spicy, but is really good.

The Pla Krapong Jian Nam Makham - Fried Seabass in Tamarind Sauce, one of their bestsellers, fillet of Seabass in sweet and sour sauce,
Php 450.00

My favorite, a must try - the Phad Phak Khana Moo Krob, Stir Fried Chinese Broccoli Leaves with Crispy Pork (Php 280.00)

Kaeng Karee Kai Haeng
Dried Yellow Curry Chicken Drumstick - Php 280.00

Phanaeng Moo/Gai
Pork in Thick Red Curry Sauce and Crushed Peanuts - Php 320.00

Nuea Yang Nam Tok
Grilled Beef with Sweet and Sour Chili Sauce - Php 300.00
one of my favorites too

But what I really loved about Dusit is, the entire hotel and its restaurants and coffee shops are at 32% off! I think the promo runs until this weekend so you better grab it real soon... For more details, you can call their hotline (63)-2-8673333 Dusit Thani Hotel, Manila.

Funny thing, now I realized how much our friends know Marnie... Almost all of them wrote the same messages on their cards... That they couldn't think of anything to give a person who has everything...

So Santi and Anna gave this for her Sweet Tooth (Teeth)

Classic Confection's Banana Cream Pie

Trevor and Michelle gave this... (for her sweet teeth)

Gateau De Crepe

Soft cream in layers and layers of crepe, and we paired it with
Haagen Dazs' Coffee Ice Cream, I swear, this is to die for...

Mark and Aihleen gave a gift certificate at
Cinese Foot Massage and Reflexology - whose licensed therapists all came from the mainland, China...

It's really fun celebrating intimate birthdays with small group of friends instead of hosting a big party full of people wearing masks...
