It’s such a joy knowing LSBB is now serving at a branch much nearer to where we live. It was last year when we first dined at the main branch of LSBB in Guadalupe, and from then on, we had constant roti and Hanoi grilled pork cravings!

 

For starters , we had Goi Con (50php) and Roti (150php).  Goi Con is fresh Vietnamese spring rolls with grilled pork, herbs and vermicelli. And our favorite thai style grilled bread Roti served with peanut sauce, curry and dried chili dips.

Also ordered the house special, Laotian Crispy Rice Salad (295php). Made with fried rice, smoked pork, herbs and seasoned with fish sauce and sided with lettuce.

Under Mains, we had the chicken curry and Viet Fish. Both dishes we loved so much. Both dishes have the right amount of curry to tingle your palate.  Highly recommend both dishes! <3

We had Mango Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sandwich for dessert! The ice cream may not be as smooth as commercial ice creams but is naturally mango sweet with a hint of zesty citrus flavor from kaffir lime that we love.

Little Saigon, Big Bangkok

 

May be out of the way but the food was worth the drive. Little Saigon Big Bangkok or LSBB is one of those Cebu home-turned-restaurant with a soul and passion to deliver good food on each plate. Taking inspiration from the street foods of Thailand and Vietnam, let LSBB take you to a culinary adventure to Bangkok and Saigon.

Making it more interesting, Little Saigon Big Bangkok or LSBB does not hand out a menu like any other resto but they have this big cork board that displays the menu of the day. The menu changes everyday depending on the fresh ingredients they get to gather for the day giving you more reasons to go back and try out the other dishes on a different day.

Starting the meal with Roti Canai. Though roti canai is often found in Malaysia and Indonesia, thought this was a great addition to the LSBB asian menu. The peanut sauce made it Thai-ish with that sweet spicy flavor. Roti Canai at 150php.

Hanoi Grilled Pork, 250php. Strips of sweet marinated pork grilled and sided with sautéed veggies. One of LSBB’s bestsellers.

Bun Cha, 275php. Bun Cha is a Vietnames dish thats translates to grilled pork soup. The LSBB Bun Cha platter comes with a bowl of broth of fish sauce, rice noodles, grilled pork, grilled meat balls and vietnamese spring roll. So the Bun Cha platter comes with a verbal how-to-eat instructions from the waiter. Kiefer (our server’s name) tells us , first get a piece of lettuce then put any of the dry ingredients on top of it, then roll the leaf, then dip on the broth, then to the mouth. Don’t be afraid to be messy, these are street food inspired cuisine. 😉

A house specialty drink – Herbal Iced Tea, 45php. It’s made with peppermint, lemon grass, lime, ginger and sugar.

So after that hefty Thai/Vietnamese street food extravaganza, let’s get down to dessert!

 

Making it to my list of favorite desserts is Kaffir Lime- Mango Ice Cream, 75php. Though it’s not as smooth as commercial ice creams, this one is naturally mango sweet with a hint of zesty citrus flavor from kaffir lime. Yum!

Sticky Rice Mango Roll with Honey, 100php. Am a fan of puto and mango but this one am not much a fan of. I thought frying it, made it more sinful and oily, and thought it could use a bit more of mango. Or maybe I was just too full. 🙂

One Claypot House

Not very often that I drive along Don Gil road, we have gone astray and wandered for about 15 minutes looking for One Claypot House. Since the 3G signal was crappy, we  used a lifeline and called our good friend Ethelbert to save us the trouble of ambling along Don Gil Street. We parked at 711 Capitol and then walked pass by 711 and another building and there it is, One Claypot House!

Entering the restaurant, you’d be transported from a Capitol street side feel to an intimate dainty dining milieu.

The humble restaurant accommodates less than 20 people, so better call and your reserve a table before coming in. With just 10 Thai and Singaporean dishes (1 appetizer, 3 soups, 1 wrap,  1hot pot, 2 pasta and 2  Pinoy favorites)  on the menu, its not hard to pick what to order.

Sawasdee Noodle Salad

The only appetizer in the menu, Sawasdee Noodle Salad is One Claypot’s take on Thailand’s popular Glass noodle Salad. Cold dish made from starch based noodles with mixed veggies, seafood in a mild spicy dressing. (150php)

 

Matsya

 

Matsya is parrot fish meat and pita bread topped with a special sauce made from herbs and yogurt. (250php) I actually pulled out 2 bones from the fish fillet,  so be careful with those fish bones when ordering the dish.  🙂

 

Tempting Seafood Pasta

Tempting Seafood Pasta. Fettucini in Olive oil with fresh prawns and tomatoes. (170php)

 

Lah-lah-lah Claypot

Lah-lah-lah Claypot. Mix of rice, chicken, pork, sausage and salted fish. (350php for the large) iLuvCebu.com recommends this dish!

 

Milky Bandung

Milky Bandung. Singapore’s milk flavored drink with rose syrup. (50php)

 

Buuurp. That was a great meal. Thank you for joining us on another piggin out session! Til our next food trip! 🙂
