UST Dapitan Area (parallel to Espanya), is known for being a big food arcade. From fastfood to karindirya to “streetfood”, you’ll find it there. For this visit, we were looking for something airconditioned and where we’re sure to get our money’s worth, that’s when I remembered SR Thai.
About the Shop
After PE in the morning, we’d go to this airconditioned haven for good food and some peace and quite before battling with the professors. I attended class in the College of Commerce building which was near the Dapitan exit that’s why this was also very convinient for us when waiting for our class to start.
The place is looks small but there’s an extension (a big extension) at the back that’s not really visible from the entrance. Somehow, even if the place has been maximized with chairs and tables, I didn’t get the feeling that it’s too cramped.
About the Menu
I had already forgotten what I usually ordered there although their menu hasn’t really changed a lot especially the ever so reliable menu-on-the-wall. Prices are still very competetive and the menu options are very familiar (no fried hulabalu dishes).
About the Food
Mario ordered the Seafood Fried Rice (which was spelled “Fired” Rice on the booklet menu ^_^;). I got Beef in Oyster Sauce. They’re also famous for their really good chili sauce which is one of their condiments which is also available in every table.
The serving size is big and it’s good for those who are trying to cut back on sodium. The food isn’t salty, nor is it bland, it’s just right. If you want to add flavor, just add soy sauce according to taste.
Some things are better off staying the same over the years and I’m glad to say that SR Thai is one of those shops I had hoped for and fortunately have stayed the same.
We’ll be back for more!
