Krung Thai, Marikina 

Oh Marikina, you are so good to me. You keep showering me with surprises, I only hope I can do you justice.

Krung Thai is my new crush in your hood. I had been eyeing her for weeks. I’m so glad I had enough courage to finally approach her. In return she gave me an authentic Thai experience with food and my weak spot, textiles! Yes, as if the owner being from Thailand wasn’t authentic enough, Krung Thai even had a corner of textiles! It was a mini Chatuchak. The cherry on top – Krung Thai offers cooking classes! Ya heard me correctly. Thank you Marikina, for these constant treasures.

Krung Thai is located on the bottom floor of the dry market.


The prices were all so affordable. I am kicking myself for not buying an apron!
Do not let the tiny space fool you. There is plenty of stock for tops, table runners, skirts, aprons, purses and small decor.

Tom yum was so yum.
And huge!

    AJ! You should definitely take a Thai cooking class. I took one at Thanksgiving Point a few months ago and have loved all the recipes. The lady who did my class uses clean, real food and keeps her recipes simple and easy. From what she was explaining, it sounds like the typical Thai diet is healthy and clean and minimally processed. I bet you would love it though!
