I was missing Thai food so I decided to book us a dinnera at Jatujak via BigDish. My sister is going to Japan for an entire week so this would be our pre-Valentines fambam dinner. I picked the branch at SM Megamamall since it was just a few blocks from home. I made sure everyone is hungry before taking them there, so I did not cook any dinner at all.
We arrived 15 minutes earlier than my reservation time of 8:30pm as advised by my friends from BigDish. Resto resto was not full when we arrived but they had a table reserved for us and a couple was sittting there about to finish. They had us wait for them which is totally fine since we were early. I also liked the spot they want us to sit in so we waited.
Sister went to the store across Jatujak to buy some cute stuff before her trip. A brown paper package envelope like laptop sleeves. She likes out-of-this-world thingamajigs.
Before sis got back from shopping , we were already seated by our table and I started ordering. I ordered the salads Pomelo & Shrimp Salad and Minced Chicken Salad , Tom Yum Shrimp, Pad Thai Chicken, Chicken Sate, Beef with Basil, Glass Noodle Beef Brisket, Sampler Appetizer (Shrimp Cake, Fresh Vegetarian and Pork Springrolls, Sticky Rice with Mango. and of course their signature Thai Iced Tea.
I didn’t realize I ordered a lot!
Daughter loved her Glass Noodle Beef Brisket she finished the entire bowl. She likes noodles and soups and this one is perfect. The glass noodles were al dente. The beef brisket had this just right sweetness. It was more Pinoy tasting than Thai, but the daughter liked it so it is fine by me! However if I was to eat this I would add some spices!
Here are the spices that Jatujak highly recommend to Thai-up soup dishes
Super loved the Pomelo & Shrimp Salad and the Minced Chicken Salad! I think the Minched Chicken Salad is very Thai, more of that sour and little spice not too sweet which is perfect! No umay factor that I finished it all!
For all the 9 dishes , 1 dessert and 2 drinks we had our tab amounted to Php2,600+++ but because of the 10% discount I got from BigDish for our food we didn’t go over our budget of Php2,500 for this dinner! Yay! All I did was book via BigDish on my phone but you can do it on your desktop as well and viola! Instant discount. You can also get up to 50% off on your meal (drinks not included) depending on the time of the day you book.
