At often times, people navigate the world looking for answers to their personal needs when usually, its somewhere — right in front of them. Still in search for the flavors that would take me to heaven, dip me in paradise or toss my taste buds upside down. To my surprise, it was just footsteps away. “A Neighborhood Restaurant” that’s their catch! KRI Restaurant.
Looking for a simple snack for brunch, a friend invited me to visit this restaurant for once in my whole life.
“One of the restaurants you shouldn’t miss”
She added as I gave a quick nod and followed after her inside.
I opened the door then there it was — the savor that welcomed me into its home. I drowned myself into the enticing smell and tolerated my arousing senses which were ready to give in at any moment the food is served. I wandered around trying to recognize the aroma but I failed. The level of intensity of my hunger rapidly increased as I sat down like an addict.
Then I said,
“I want to capture this moment”
And so I did.
But then again, the place was still something.
I took pictures..
And more pictures..
That dragon seemed to be really eye-catching. I took a closer look and then…
would you look at that, how impressive!
So then, the food was served and I felt like a kid once more running to my seat so excited to eat.
Meet Pad Thai Noodles
In KRI restaurant, you’re the boss! I ordered my Pad Thai Noodles in level 4.5 in fear that it may be too spicy for me since my friend chose only level 4 and requested it to be in all veggie style.
The Vegan Style
Then came the first taste.
Having high tolerance in spicy food, I requested that they change it to level 6. So they did. In a few minutes I took another taste.
I got lost in words.
I took another, then another. It was just so irresistible. The taste was brilliant!
As my teeth pierced through the soft noodles, it suddenly melted into my mouth. Amazingly, it tasted creamy just like Carbonara. But the crisp and crunch of the tofu and nuts on top, plus the tangy taste of the lime including the different spices that tickled my tongue made it so unique which you’d never get used to!
In the end, I was flooded with sweat as I had what I asked for — Level 6; yet so hungry for more.
Have it you way! The original…
KRI Restaurant is located right beside Insular Hotel. So if you are looking for a bed and breakfast type then no need to look further for such expensive hotels. They can serve food to you even at your room! At a very fair price!
KRI (A Neighborhood Restaurant)
Service, food, accommodations . . .double thumbs up!
…and I’m not alone on that.
My friend insisted that it would be best to visit at night as more people appreciate it.
And I will.
