Asia is just full of wonder, colors and flavors, and its food even more so!
With influences from several nationalities and ethnic groups, all linked by this vast continent, Asian cuisine is a study of similarities and contrasts.
Since last year, denizens of the foodie haven Tomas Morato area in Quezon City have easy access to Asian comfort food, thanks to BOA Kitchen + Socials. This Scout Rallos restaurant prides itself on being able to bring traditional favorites from the Southeast Asian region to the local food scene, but with modern twists, making more palatable to the Pinoy diner. It has even secured a spot in Spot.PH’s list of Top 50 New Restaurants in Metro Manila. (Check out my previous dining experiences at BOA Kitchen here and here.)
It has also successfully pivoted its operations to thrive in the New Normal, first by offering party trays of its best-selling dishes for delivery during the ECQ, and now, by making its client’s ordering experience even easier and more convenient with its newly launched website: boakitchen.com.
Through its website, would-be diners can easily browse through and select their choices from BOA Kitchen’s takeaway menu and pay via credit card, e-wallet or mobile bank transfer upon checkout. Afterwards, they can opt to pickup their orders from BOA Kitchen, or have them delivered to their home (delivery fee already computed).
I tried it out to introduce my kids to Southeast Asian cuisine during our dinner. With just a few taps on my tablet, I was able to order a selection of sumptuous dishes. (BOA Kitchen’s staff even took care of the booking the delivery service for me!)
That night, my family feasted on:
Kimchi Quesadilla (Php225). A Kor-Mex fusion made with grilled tortilla filled with cheddar, mozarella, kimchi and gochujang sour cream.
Nasi Goreng Chicken (Php310). Indonesia’s version of fried rice, given a sweet and savory flavor by the use of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and made heartier by the addition of kropek, cucumber, tomatoes, fried egg and shredded chicken.
Nasi Lemak Chicken Rice Bowl (Php265). The fragrant Malaysian rice dish cooked in coconut cream and pandan leaves, served with sambal (Indonesian chili sauce), dilis (dried anchovies), peanuts and soft-boiled or fried egg and accompanied by Thai Fried Chicken. Apparently, this dish is a hit with the kiddos!
Chicken Pad Thai (Php365). One of BOA Kitchen’s best-sellers, this stir-fried noodle dish is made with rice noodles, tofu, egg, bean sprouts, peanuts and chicken bits. To fully enjoy the Pad Thai, heat the sauce in a pan, then toss the noodles in until well-coated. Let the sauce reduce for a bit before serving.
Mango Sticky Rice (Php235). Glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and topped with mango bits served with chocolate Tablea syrup. A great mix of Thai and Filipino flavors.
This Southeast Asian feast was well-enjoyed by the fam! Try it out for yourself! Order now at boakitchen.com. Take advantage of the website’s launch promo and get 10% your total bill!
