CUE AND BREW

If you have seen these self-moving, no-spill drinking glasses, then you are in a good place. 



A recently opened restaurant located in the strip of Aguirre Ave., BF Homes, Cue and Brew, offers a specific menu of smoked pulled pork and beef brisket along with a variety of side dishes - Truffle Mac n' Cheese, Coleslaw, Mashed Potato, Parmesan Fries, Dirty Rice, and Steamed Rice.

We tried both the pork and beef.

Smoked Pulled Pork Plate (P260.00)
(Includes two side dishes)



12-hour Smoked Beef Brisket (P295.00)
(Includes two side dishes)



Anything with the words 'potato' and 'mac 'n cheese' on a menu I'll choose over everything else just because... It's potato... and mac n' cheese! Do i need more explanation? Carb-loading? What carb-loading? Haha. For our sides, of course, we had to go for the mashed potato and truffle mac 'n cheese. The dirty rice got our hungry appetites, whoops, I meant curious minds working and tried it as well.

Everything was delicious and cooked well! The beef and pork were tender and full of flavor. Despite coming as a group of 12 without any reservation (we basically occupied most of their space), they have managed to serve their food still at its best quality.

Just a note-to-self or to like-minded people like me as well who likes their sauce/gravy on the side, remember to request for it because they serve it together with the meat already. My reason for this is because, as a self-proclaimed gastronome/foodie/food blogger whatchamacallit, I like to appreciate and taste the flavor that went into the food while cooking specially if their meats have been smoked for hours. Personally, I think the meat alone can stand out without their sauce but don't get me wrong, their sauce is quite good as well. :)

A Taste of Thailand: Silom Thai Restaurant, SM Bicutan

2:54:00 PM Larisse Espinueva 0 Comments

Through my whole 23 years of existence, my inborn love and enthusiasm for food, and SM Bicutan being one of the nearby malls I grew up with, it is such a shame to admit that it was only a few days ago that I have tried Silom Thai Restaurant. It's probably the best restaurant to dine in SM Bicutan. The ingredients and food preparation is of quality and would exceed your expectation. Their ambiance, table setting(specially the textured metal drinking glass), and serving plates are simple yet has that very asian feel.



I wasn't as excited at first since Thai cuisine isn't one of my top favorites but as a person with an undying passion for eating GOOD FOOD, I was still more than willing to give it a try.

Thai Iced Tea with Milk (P90). After a sip, it immediately brought me back to the authentic milk teas I used to drink in HongKong. I have never been to Thailand yet so I have no point of comparison but if it's as good as HK's milk tea then this must be the real deal of Thailand's!



Vegetarian Spring Rolls (P130). It was a surprise when i took a bite-sized piece of these rolls. It was so fresh and light. The perfect appetizer before digging into their rich flavorful dishes.



Crispy Pork Salad (P255). How can something so healthy be so sinful at the same time? Eat this salad and you'll know what I'm talking about. If I had more than 2 thumbs, I'd raise them all!


Chicken and Pork Sate (P185). The peanut sauce was not overwhelming which I love. Both meats were tender and well-seasoned


Red Curry with Fish Fillet (P240). I am not familiar with red curry or rather any Thai curry but I found this so different from the usual Indian and Japanese curries I've tasted. This had a light curry taste yet salty specially when it cooled down. (I honestly don't know if that's a good or bad thing, haha)



Fried Rice with Shrimp (P180). Serves around three. Perfect pair to the red curry fish and sate.



I can't wait to come back and try more of their dishes and desserts!
