Pad Thai At Asian Side WOK

When I saw on facebook that there is a new Asian Restaurant in the city that serves pad that, I really got excited. So today, I tried their pad thai and I can say it was relatively good although my version is pretty much way better. The Food The serving is generous enough for 1 person for the price of P149.00. The presentation is rather simple. Instead of using the usual lime, they use kalamansi so you can feel the difference in the taste. The rice noodles are a little bit thinner than the regular rice noodles I normally have for my pad thai. The taste as I mentioned earlier is relatively good and it's worth a try.

It is a small self-service restaurant with on
