A Taste of Siam

In my quest for finding good restaurants for young professionals like me, I stumbled upon this old restaurant which has been serving the city of Angeles for many years now.  Actually, i've been hearing about this rustic place named SIAM HOUSE known for serving Thai dishes minus the fuss of fine dining.

This nook is comfortably situated in Fields Avenue, Barangay Balibago, Angeles City, Pampanga.  One would not easily recognize this unless you really look into the array of establishments lining up Clark's 'perimeter road'.  To be more specific (I imagined that you will be sending them snail mail soon), the address is: 550 Don Juico Ave, Malabanias, Angeles City.  Their telephone numbers are: 045.892.1500 and 0920. 827.8276.

This is how the place looks in daytime... very quaint and simple
This is how it looks in night time... makes it harder to find...
Their sign board.. although I suggest you just go look for the 7-11 shop next to it
Simplistic interior.. no fuss, two straight lines for the customers
So for those looking for a five-star treatment for the ambiance, you are at the WRONG place.  This is your typical hole-in-a-wall foodie stop where you visit mainly for the food and nothing else.  Service is minimal and almost dormitory (read:  just like your land lady serving you with the other 100+ occupants, get the idea).

A map here shows the location:

What Siam house lack in venue and service luster they compensate BIG TIME on the food they are SERVING.  As in.  Their selection of curries are very good and their pad thai is great. For those who have been loyally following my blog, I have been known to be an advertiser of another Thai restaurant in Angeles City, and I am still a fan even with the Siam experience, it's just that I guess it is worth to be visiting this place too every so often.  From stories of friends who have tried the place, the menu did not change much from years back and they have really put so much into perfecting their dishes.

Similar internet articles also noted the chef being a real thailander but I had conflicting information as recent communication with the owner and the place where I work got information that majority of their food really comes from Manila and just transported here for the actual preparation and cooking.  Maybe i'll try to get in touch with the owner one of these days.

Anyway, go feast your eyes with these photos I have collected (too bad I lost my 'tomyum' photo) from my past visits.  Enjoy!
