Its the first day of September. We're giddy, and we drove all over Makati to find something that's new to me. I'm excited!

We went to Rockwell area, where Soms is located. And just found out that they moved to a nearby place(old location is sold and has a new establishment)

And we found it! Its a hidden gem. Well, ambiance may not be appealing, I have a mind set of enjoying their authentic Thai dishes. Quite disappointed, as most of the dishes we ordered are not available, so we have to choose another in the menu.

We had:

127776Tom Yam (P250) , it has lemon grass, ywllow ginger, chili paste. Kaffir leaves. With seafood (shrimp & squid) Soooo good! Enjoyed the soup with a bit of sourness, spicy and flavorful. Mild spicy for me, though at first look, the red soup looks super spicy.

127776Red Curry (P200) we ordered this dish with chicken. This one looks like Kare-Kare128522 curry flavor is awesome. It has basil leaves, slices eggplants, green chili, bell pepper and coconut milk.

127776Spicy Squid. Saucy dish, that has basil leaves, beans and chili. For me, simple one but its also good.

127776Thai Tea (P50), for a milk tea lover like me this is a super sulit drink.

Verdict: Happy to be in this hole in a wall place. I enjoyed the food! Quality food for an affordable price.

Like I said in my previous posts. I am not a fan of Thai Food particularly the Pad Thai. Still tried eating it earlier but I was never satisfied BUT good thing they served us fried spring rolls and that's what made me happy! We also ordered sticky rice and it was great!!! I am inlove with it! Plus the Thai Tea was great also!! I have never been this satisified in dining on a thai resto :)

Maybe the only thing that they lack is the training for the servers. They lack hospitality/good customer service. They show respect to the customers but they don't smile or anything.

Soms apparently lost its authenticity. Sad because I was having a bad Thai food craving and I thought I went to the right place. Their noodles are no longer as good as it used to so I would say it's terribly overpriced. Even their signature Thai milk tea isn't as good. But avoid the siomai at all costs, I might be exaggerating here but it's almost inedible. No one in the family dared to finish it.

On top of eveything, the place was poorly lit, not well-ventilated, and service could be compared to your typical carinderia. Probably not going back anytime soon.

Pad Thai, Phad Ki Moo Gai, Laksa yummm! And and and oh, Thai Tea! Authentic Thai cuisine. Around P1K for three. I love it! What an experience.

Som's used to be my favorite Thai resto because of its authentic menu and taste. I have been very disappointed with how it is now. Their Pad Thai was reddish in color and was very blant, I had to mix some sauce to make the taste better. Their Speing Rolls were not the same as before. The green curry had only 3 small pieces of meat. Very disappointing.

Bastardization of thai food, avoid like a plague! Place used to be good but i heard thai owner no longer manages. If you're a fan of overpriced, gross, catsup-laden soggy pad thai, then you found your place. If you like your curry swimming in sauce with barely any meat, then hurrah, soms is the place. For an unsanitary, poorly lit eatery they dare ask for service charge!

Their Pad Thai is the stuff my dreams are made of! The soft noodles, the perfectly cooked squid, and the sweet-salty-sour sauce got me taking bite after big bite. On a bad day, I'd probably be able to inhale a whole platter of this. 128514

Got a plate of their Spicy Squid too and they weren't kidding when they said this dish packs some heat. This stuff will make you sweat and cry happy tears! Be sure to buy a bottle of their sweet Thai Milk Tea to combat the chili. 128516

Overall, Som's is a great find. Will come back for more!

I go to Som's not for the Thai food, but for its inasal manok and chorizo. They grill outside the restaurant in traditional charcoal, and nothing can still beat this type of cooking. The chorizo is particularly good! Waiting time though is a bit long, as they only grill upon order. But it is so worth it when it arrives on your table.

Som's used to be the go-to hole in the wall resto in 'Backwell' (Back of Rockwell) Makati for Thai food, but, at best, it is affordable, value for money Thai food. But for its inasal, I don't mind checking it out from time to time.

Used to be just a small shack where you order food from a counter while looking at all those delicious photos of their food. Enjoyed eating along the street then with plastic chairs and tables and cats by your feet. I see they have progressed, now situated in a sprawling edifice but I guess this did not do them any good maybe diners preferred that ghetto style dining before. Tried the spiciest red curry chicken. Not that spicy for me and was tad too sweet. Swimming in curry sauce but had hard time tasting the curry. 128530

Was very hungry so decided to check this place. Was suppose to be a good dinner meal since its near by, a few groupies was among those that arrived same time i did. I ordered my list of favorites, was hoping the service would be very quick since was not so much customers. To my dismay, i had to follow up my order 3 times, the new groups that arrived after me had their food served already, i asked what was taking to long my order was just chicken curry? So i decided to just drink my tea and leave after paying ended up my order wasnt even ready? What the hell was that? They should improve their service, the owner i pressume didnt even bother to apologize maybe because they thought their establishment is to popular for others well if you are looking for fast good service, this place definitely isnt the one! Miss that days when they were to attentive, now their servers were relaxed i even had to go up the counter to order, and pay my drink. Cancelled order! I feel bad about tonight that they have poorly attended to me.

Finally got to try this place, I've been wanting to try this place since last year but none of my friends want to come with me. It's their loss! Haha

Everything that we ordered was heavenly delicious:

*Shrimp Salad—PERFECTION!
*Seafood Pad Thai—Best I've ever tried.
*Green Curry—Not really a curry fan but I liked this.
*Spicy Shrimp—Too spicy for me since I don't really eat spicy food but to someone who loves spicy stuff, this will be a big hit!

Price was affordable as well, it's cheaper than most Thai restaurants. Place has a carinderia vibe but I think it's part of the authentic experience.

In all fairness, the food we ordered tasted well.

Red pork curry
Garlic pepper chicken
Pad siew
Grilled isaw, gizzard, and longanisa

And oh their famous thai tea is a must-try.

The sad thing about the visit though was the poor service.

We cleared the utensils used by previous customers because attendants did not clean the table. We even brought the used plates right to the kitchen door.

Grill stuff arrived after 15-20min

Plates, spoon and fork after 30-40min (so just imagine eating without these essentials)

The rest the order arrived after almost 2hrs.

I understand that we are a big group of 12 and its dinner time so its acceptable to get food a bit delayed but its too much to wait for 2hrs specially if all are hungry at dinner time.

I haven't found a thai restaurant in Manila which is as authentic as the thai food that you taste in Bangkok. The food in Soms is good but not that authentic. But this place will make you feel like your eating in the side streets of Bangkok. That's why I recommend this hole in the wall joint. Try their thai iced tea 128077

I love the vibe here. It's like your in Bangkok. The food is so so but its the closest thai restaurant that can have in Manila. If you miss Thailand then this is the perfect place for you.

The last time I ate here was probably 3 years ago and the first time was 7 years back 128514

Went here to introduce my college friends to new food and to my high school friend, Faye. I liked the food but did not love it but I fell in love with their Thai milk tea sooo much! Been craving for it weeks even months after that visit!

If you're tryna show off your "foodie-ness" bring your friends and family here. This place is surely a nice hole in the wall. They have better parking as they are practically the only restaurant on that street.

PS
Do not forgot to bring home some bbq from their neighbor! They're humungous! Definitely a bang for your buck for P30-38/stick 128521
