Coca Restaurant Celebrates Anniversary With A Partnership With Life Project 4 Youth

Coca Restaurant Anniversary

I love the idea of paying it forward. I believe that the best form of gratitude is sharing our blessings with those who need a hand. This is how Coca Restaurant celebrated their anniversary (which happens to be my birthday too!). In a small get together with friends from the media, Coca Restaurant announced their partnership with Life Project 4 Youth.

LP4Y volunteers, Ludovic Ducuing and Aurelie Garancher, shared that the advocacy of their organization is to help the excluded youth to be self-sustaining so they can be productive members of the society. They do this by partnering with businesses like Coca Restaurant that train these youth so they can pursue a worthwhile career.

I think this partnership between Coca Restaurant and Life Project 4 Youth is truly a great way to guide these youth towards a brighter future. It makes me want to do the same thing every time I celebrate my birthday!

Coca Restaurant opened in Thailand way back in 1957. Their delectable Chinese-Thai cuisine became a hit as they expanded to Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines. For their anniversary dinner, they served us some of their most-loved dishes like Coca Chicken in a Paper Bag, Roast Duck Salad, Seafood Durian Spring Roll, Stir Fried Squid, Roast Chicken with Khao Man Gai Sauce, Coca Noodles, Sweet and Sour Pork, Emperor’s Platter with Khao Tom, and Live Steam Garoupa with Lime Sauce.

I love the food they served us so much that when my family arrived to pick me up, I invited them for dinner at Coca Restaurant that same night so they can try the dishes I ate! Everything was a hit! I just realized that we weren’t able to take photos of my birthday dinner because everyone was so busy tasting all the dishes we ordered. LOL!

Have you tried Coca Restaurant too? How was it?

    I love Thai food, but I didn’t know Coca is actually a Thai restaurant that’s why we didn’t bother trying it out. Thanks for this post. Are their prices reasonable? Hope you had a blast on your birthday!

      The price depends on the dish eh. The most expensive I saw in the menu is the Emperor’s Platter at around 2k…but it’ll feed a group of 4-6.

    Receiving kindness truly has a natural tendency to inspire us to pay it forward, noh? That indescribable feeling of joy we get from others just wants to pour out to others. The ripple goes on and on and on… I love how brands get involve in charities!

    Giving back to your customers is always a good cause. More years to come for Coca Restaurant and more people they can help

    That’s a good cause to celebrate. I love the idea of giving back on my birthday. My friend does that, she helps out an orphanage, I think.

    I really adore companies who are willing to help charitable institutions, I never tried Thai foods before, but with your pleasing images, I think I should try it one of these days.

      The others find it “uniquely good” daw. I didn’t try it. Nahihilo ako sa durian eh!

    I went there once when I was with the in laws.. okay naman yung tea choices nila at yung dishes are superb sa taste… although medyo bitin sa serving haha… or is it because marami kami? 😀

      Sa group naman namin, okay lang yung serving. It depends siguro how many you are in the group and ang appetite. 😀

    I’m curious as to how Coca Restaurant helps in Life Project 4 Youth? Did they donate or are they employing some young people to train in their restaurant?

    Anyway, those dishes are look superbly delicious. That’s quite a lot of food they served you, too!

      I believe a couple of them are training at Coca 🙂 They did serve a lot! I’d love to come back to try their other dishes.
