Somtam Thai Resto: Som Tam and the Best of Thai Cuisine

I’ll try to make this short and sweet, guys, because I’m not feeling well. (Fingers crossed, this is not the one time, big time sick for 2019 or ever. *hee)

It Takes a Ketchup Food Community to Make a Happy Tummy

Or is it the other way around? ^^,

No matter.  But just so you know, before any of the other eating places at the Ketchup Food Community came to be, there was Happy Tummy.  A Thai restaurant opening for business at the most opportune time (when people became more receptive to Thai cuisine), they serve pad Thai, chicken pandan, fried tilapia in tamarind sauce, som tam salad, Thai iced tea and more.  What with the mega flavors that their offering of Thai dishes have, you can order up something as simple as eggplant salad and eat it viand-like with bagoong rice or maybe the more downplayed salty flavor rice – Thai rice.  A good and filling meal for a happy tummy.  (“,)  That’s what Race and I did the first time we visited this restaurant.  Hanging out in one of their dining tables in a hut, we had happy tummies in no time.

Student Fare: Marosan’s Restaurant, ‘Greenhouse’, Reg’s Binalot and Macsbox

When you need to eat and you need food fast, delicious and easy on the (student) budget, you have four main choices. There’s Marosan’s/RJ/Lenroc, the ‘Greenhouse’, Reg’s Binalot and Macsbox.

Marosan’s Restaurant

Marosan’s a.k.a. Lenroc a.k.a. RJ has been in business for the longest time. When I was in college that’s where my friends and I used to go. (No pictures of course, I wasn’t a foodie yet and also, compact and affordably priced digicams were nonexistent then.) You can go to the Marosan’s establishment a little ways from the SLU main gate or you can go to the one along Bonifacio Street which is closer from the Otto Hahn gate.
