This is my favorite among all the Erwan Heussaff restaurants. It offers nice Asian food execution at a good price.

COCA Restaurant-15.jpg

COCA is a Thai Hot Pot place famous for their Thai-style 'Suki' steamboat dining, created by Mr. Srichai Phanphensophon and his wife, Mrs. Patama, in 1957 in Soi Dejo, Thailand.

We loved our COCA experience at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore, so we were happy when they finally opened a branch here in Manila at SM Aura Premier. 

It got mixed reviews from foodies. Sharing with you our own COCA experience...

TAMARIND is the SM Aura level-up version of the popular Thai resto Jatujak by Chef Tum and Al Purugganan. It offers the same comfort Thai food at affordable prices with a nice contemporary Thai ambiance.

This is like the "SukhoThai", the comfort Thai resto of this generation. It's always fun to be here if you are craving for simple Thai food.

Mango Tree: Finally, Authentic Thai Fine Dining in Manila?!

Mango Tree-33.jpg

How times have changed!

Hotels no longer monopolize the fine dining scene in Manila. Most actually have neglected it--they hardly innovate or even renovate their restaurants. They just rely on introducing different-themed buffets with different chefs. These days, if you want to go out for really good food, you go to specialized themed restaurants.

And now, we have Mango Tree to thank for bringing Authentic Thai Fine Dining to Manila!

Since Mango Tree is a Thailand Restaurant Chain, you can expect authentic Thai food and not the toned-down, Filipino-Thai sweet version. (I was never a fan of the Mango Tree Bistros here in Manila because the food was a bit safe and lacked in taste.)

We love the Mango Tree Flagship Store in Bonifacio High Street Central for its authentic Thai dishes, high-ceiling interiors, and Thai-inspired ambiance.

Check out our Mango Tree Dining experience with my Mastermind team...
