Azuthai - Love for Thai

One of the things I wished for my birthday is to eat at Azuthai. Ewan ko ba, nagbuild up na talaga yung love affair ko for Thai food. Here goes:

Located in the Milkyway Building on Arnaiz Avenue, Makati; Azuthai serves home-style Thai cuisine prepared by Chefs Tip and Bow from Phuket, Thailand following their own family recipes.

a lunch date at Azuthai

The staffs warmly welcomed us. The place looks like more of a hotel ambiance. A bit dark lang inside and even with the chandelier, i think kulang pa dun yung source of light for taking photos. I chose to stay near the window glasses nalang. Ganun kahalaga ang lightning sa photos. Ü

Of all the Thai food I've tasted, this really is my favorite.

Yam Pla Duk Foo
Crispy Catfish Salad - green mango, peanuts, mint, lime dressing

Until now, Im still bragging the brilliance of this combination. Ang sarap! But Benjarong of Dusit's version is yummier. Ibang level na yung Dusit's Benjarong kasi it's originally a Thai Hotel na may branch sa Makati. The chefs there are native Thai. So for Azuthai's version, panalo na din to.

Pad Thai
Thai Style Fried Noodles

After trying out many versions, this is time I realized I dont like my Pad Thai with egg. Nonetheless, Azuthai's version has a rich taste. But again, it fall short of Benjarong's version. Ibang level yung sarap dun.

But this Azuthai dish really stands out:

Massaman Gaeh
Massaman Lamb Curry with Shallots, Potatoes, Peanuts

After every bite, I cant help myself but say: sobrang sarap nito! The lamb is super soft, it melts in your mouth. The sauce is thick. Spiciness comes perfect. This dish is very flavorful. A winner!

And a good thing to end this lunch is to try out Thai's local beer.
Drinking beer at lunchtime after my shift- not a very wise idea.. Ü

Singha - local Thai beer

Tastes like SMB's pilsen. I think it's good, sanay lang siguro yung taste buds ko sa SanMig Light.

Overall, I enjoyed this Azuthai experience. Bit expensive for a weekend lunch. Im just lucky this meal came free!

Roninkotwo said...

Dalawang bagay Chyng, natutuwa ako na isa sa favorite mo ang catfish salad dahil ako ang nag convince sayo na i-try. Pangalawa, dapat next time na mag thai fud ka, ask the waiter na add more spicy..kasi naniniwala ako na sa Thai, x10 ang ang level nila dun. =)

Thanks a lot for these tips! I've been wanting to try a lot of Thai food. Any recommendations for the spicy and very spicy ones?

By the way, were you able to go to MAFBEX last weekend?

mishi said...

delete the 1st comment chyng. Sori! :(

We're eyeing for thai foods pero pag andun na, parang hesitant kmi so we usually ended up with Korean cuisines. We still want to try thai though. :)

I love Thai food as long as it's not too spicy. But I second the motion to Dong's recommendation: try Indian food naman next time kasi ibang-iba.

backpacking philippines said...

uy belated...i also love thai food. i began loving spicy food when i visited BKK :P

Dea said...

Naku, Chyng, maloloka ka sa Bangkok! Puro food-trip lang kami dun that we weren't able to visit the tourist-y places, pagkain lang talaga ang inatupag namin! I ate so much in five days, grabe!

And nakarami rin ako ng Singha beer, although I preferred yung Singha light.

We got back this morning, but mabigat pa ang pakiramdam ko, hehe!

witsandnuts said...

The orchids in Thai establishments are the key. Nice shots! Your P & S is something.

Jakey Junkie said...

Yep, I was at MAFBEX. Nakabili ako ng Korean Noodles, Korean Ice Cream. Pero ang highlight duon e naging friends ko ang isang Malaysian family na exhibitors duon. Binigyan ako ng samutsaring libreng pagkain. Beef rendang powder GET. :D

Robbie said...

Thanks for sharing this Chyng! I so so so so love Thai food even if I can't afford to dine at thai restos sometimes. Hahaha. I will definitely try this one out especially yung Massaman Gaeh. With your description, it seems like the kind of food that I will enjoy. :D

Allen said...

Diamond R said...

first, I like the shots.there is something na kakaiba sa pagkakuha ng pic.YOu are very good in taking close up pic I don't know the term.

Hmmm. This restaurant seems to have more varied fare than what we have in our Thai restaurants here :) I know that Thai cuisine truly is rich in variety. I wish I could try more authentic dishes

Azuthai is probably the best Thai resto on the metro :)
