My and my friends were again, hunting for an aftermidnight snack, so we ventured the streets of Makati and found Crying Tiger, Hidden Guanzon hehehehe 128518

I love the vibe of the place with hints of Thai and Vietnam decor.... The flavors of the orientally fused cuisine are also unique.... Actually their foodies are perfect beermatch.... pardon for the red-faced me hehehe12852210084128077🏻

We had a bit of spicy chicken wings, pork slices and the surprising Nam Rolls....you have to go there to know why hehehehe 128518128518128518

They also show viet/thai movies while you dine and drink!127864127864127864

Crying tiger is another hole in the wall restaurant that you can find in Makati. They offer really good food!!!

‼️‼️ Vegetarian Mee Goreng (P225) - IT WAS SPICY and I LOVED IT! It was really realy good! I did not regret getting the vegetarian version rather than the seafood one because we also ordered other dishes that were already "meaty". Hehe

‼️‼️ Beef Rendang (P275) | no photo - This one was also good! I love spicy food and this one just hits the spot! It was spicy, flavourful and the meat was cooked just right... It was perfect! I'd probably go back to get myself another plate! This time, it will be all for myself!!!

‼️‼️ Chicken Satay (P160) - This went perfect with the Mee Goreng! And it balanced the spicyness level of both dishes so it made me a very happy piggy!!!

The ambience here is also good, I loved the spot where we got seated because I can have a glimpse of both worlds - inside and outside the restaurant.

The price of the food seemed a little expensive but with the quality of food you'd get... I'd say every penny would be worth it!!

Well, it's the only one of its kind near my place, so it's worth a try. My favorite would be the Thai Omelette, because it reminds me of my mom's omelette, burnt and salty. Pad Thai is good! Beef rendang, a little too fatty for me, but is recommended by others. Perfect place to for some beer after work, if only they closed a lot later.

Southeast Asian street foods at its finest 128512

This place boasts a cool and chill vibe where you can find favourites from Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. It is where good food comes in a cheap price just like the restaurants in the busy backpacking streets of Southeast Asia. The food may be street-food-like but it bursts with flavor. I love their Nasi Goreng and Changmai Sausage 128536. This hole in the wall is a great find and can be an alternative to fancy bars 128521.

Poblacion area of makati is a backpacker haven for foreigner. The place reminds me of KhaoSan Rd. of Bangkok and HoChiMin of Vietnam. Thats why this is the perfect place for a resto like CryingTiger. The vibe of the place is an exact replica of the feel of bangkok or vietnam's food street. Love the interior, very thailand colorful. Got some cool wall painting. The place is very instagrammable.128247

The food here is a mixture of southeast asian streetfood. We tried some of their well known dishes. MeeGoreng (Seafood Noodles), Thai Pork BBQ, Thai Omelette and ChangMai Sausage. Tastewise there was nothing special about their dishes but everything tasted good. The pork bbq reminded me of Bee Cheng Hiang pork jerky. I love it. The ChangMai sausage was not a sausage that you normally see. Try that one for a little intriguing dish. For the drinks I tried their Thai IcedTea tasted good and tasted similar to the lipton milk tea.128522

Overall this is a place that is fun to discover in one of the small street in poblacion. Cool vibe and great place to unwind with some not too pricey southeast asian streetfood. Another great venture by the owner of El Chupacabra.128518128077

Just some gentle reminder no service water so if you want water try buying in some convenience store for budgeting. Bring also some patience because there are only few waiters. There are times getting attention is quite hard when the place is crowded.128521

Had dinner date with the wife and a friend recommended this resto to us.
No problem finding the restaurant care of waze and was fortunate that there was parking available.
The place is the Thai sister of el chupacabra ( they are the owners) open air, no Aircon, cheap eats, ex pats, etc. The menu is styled to be Thai and Malaysian street food.
We ordered...
Seafood me goreng... Delicious
Morning glory... Awesome ( I can eat this on its own(
Thai fried chicken... Loved the sauce
Pork belly w rice... Simple and ordinary
Spring rolls.... Not bad
Malaysian wings... Forgettable
What I like about the place are the price points. It's cheap! Will be back!
Btw... Beware of the boys outside who will assist u in parking. They will try to rip u off at 40 pesos and claim it's the restaurant charging for parking

I would rate this place 3.5. The morning glory was good but didnt have any meat (I like the version of People's Palace better), the shrimp fried rice was also good but nothing fancy. The sauce of the Thai pork bbq was yummy and unique. The Malaysian wings were just so-so.

I think their menu is limited...and the price is affordable but not cheap (considering that it is a street kitchen with no aircon). The design of the place is cool though and looks like it belongs in Khao San Road.

For great Thai food, nothing beats People's Palace in my opinion.

Great attempt at Thai street food! Isn't too pricey as well! Nothing over P600, beer is only P45! Malaysian chicken wings are great, so is the Pad Thai with glass noodles, and peppered beef! Will definitely come back! Bring a driver though, parking is really hard!

Mee Goreng, chicken wings, kang kong! Yum yum yum! If you can't handle spicy, you need to tell them to lessen the spiciness of the mee goreng. I was crying! Lol! Really worth trying.

Literally cried their food was super spicy. Authentic thai cuisine found in the streets of Makati. Its just weird that they dont serve thai iced tea and they dont serve milkbased drinks. I had to buy from 711. The food here is Very affordable. The ambience of the
Resto is really nice. Everything is instagrammable. Feels like your in the streets of bangkok.
Try their fried chicken, pork bbq and pad thai.
Tell the waiter to lessen the spice

This place takes you right back to the streets of Bangkok! Crying tiger does not offer the commercial thai fare that are usually too sweet. Enjoy the fried rice w shrimp, stir-fried kang kong, fried quail eggs and crispy pork belly. But what left a mark for me was the lip smacking good - fried chicken! They are still in the soft opening stage, we can't wait for the full menu.
Hats off to the people behind El Chupacabra and señor pollo who runs this hole in the wall.
They made sure we get the authentic isaan experience - food, beer, sweat and all!
