Authentic Thai Food at Mor Thai #ThaiSELECT

Recently, I was invited to a foodie meetup at Mor Thai in Pasay City, and my trip to Thailand just weeks after my visit made me realize that Mor Thai indeed offers authentic and delicious Thai food. They have been awarded by #ThaiSELECT, and it surely is well-deserved.

Mor Thai is located on the second floor of Met Live Mall in Pasay City. I like how their interiors give a warm, refined vibe with beautiful Thai aesthetics. They also sell different Thai products in their restaurant.

His family has been making Thai desserts to sell before he was born, and he grew up with a love for cooking since his childhood. He has been a chef in the Philippines for around four years and wanted Filipinos to find authentic Thai Food in the country, as most Thai restaurants in the Philippines do not have a Thai chef. Mor Thai's dishes are all prepared by Chef Nun. 
Here are the dishes that we had:

We were served with their complimentary Fish on Sticks upon seating at the table. These are dried fish glazed with sweet and sticky spice, and it's delicious and appetizing. 

For my drink, I had Cha Nom Yen, or Thai Milk Tea. My friends had Red Thai Syrup Soda and Longan Juice.

They also showed us other versions of the Thai Syrup Soda, and there was a lot to choose from. The Thai Syrup Soda is a common street food in Thailand.  

Khor Moo Yang. Grilled Pork Neck with Special Sauce. It's tender and juicy, with a good amount of fat. The pork is already good on its own, but it pairs well with rice, and the sauce compliments it even further. 

Gai Hor Bai Toey. Chicken Pandan. Fragrant and succulent Thai chicken wrapped in pandan leaves. 

Khao Phad Sapparod. I love their pineapple fried rice. You can taste the freshness of the pineapples and the delectable mix of savory and sweet flavors in this dish.

Tom Kha Gai. Thai Coconut Milk Soup with Chicken. This would be my favorite pick among the dishes served. I just love the soup so much; it's so delicious. 

Khao Hom Ma Li. Jasmine Rice. I love how they serve these perfectly-cooked rice in fancy containers. 

Pad Thai. Thai fried noodles with shrimp. It's so good that there's no need to add the condiments, but you can also add some and have more fun with this dish.

Goong Pool Khao Fai. The highlight of our meal are these Thai Volcano Prawns. Volcano shrimp are also quite popular in Thailand because of how it is served--the prawns are in a volcano-shaped foil and then put into flames in front of you. You'd get that nice char on the outside yet succulent meat inside. It is also served with a spicy sauce for that full volcanic experience.  

Khao Niaw Ma-Muang. This is by far the best mango sticky rice I've had. I would say this is even better than the ones in Thailand because they seem to have used Philippine mangoes, the sweetest in the world. 

Ta-Ko. Thai Coconut Pudding. They have the taro and corn flavor.
