Last Monday after my successful presentation, I gathered with a small group of friends* & we headed to the wilds of the county for dinner. Way way out in the county.
The restaurant we tried? Thai Kitchen at Dorsett & 270. It looks like a little hole in the wall next sandwiched between a bar and a dental office (if I’m remembering correctly).
Now, if you know me, you know how I love my Thai food, especially all things curry. I can’t decide which curry sauce is my favorite, so I’ve taken to choosing what to order based on what I want in the curry. Monday, yellow curry was the curry of choice for me.
We started our meal with their fried tofu & the Thai Dumplings. The peanut sauce with the fried tofu left me wishing for the fried tofu at Pho Grand, although the tofu itself was good. The Thai Dumplings were quite delicious, although with a bit of kick I wasn’t expecting.
My yellow curry chicken was delicious, although after the spice of the dumplings it was a little much. I ate my fill & brought the leftovers home, which were again delicious a few days later (and the spice was easier to take).
I would definitely eat at Thai Kitchen again, although on our way back to the highway I noticed an Indian restaurant I might have to try if I’m out that way again.
One of the things I miss about my younger days is my ability to handle the spicy foods. I spent nearly 2 weeks in New Orleans when I was in my early 20s and ate my way through all the Cajun food I could get my hands on. One of my favorite Chinese dishes comes with 2-3 tiny dried chili peppers in it along with a healthy dose of pepper flakes. Spicy Indian food is yummy in my tummy. I love spicy foods. But my sometimes digestive system does not, so I usually play it safe.
Okay, I completely lost my train of thought. I was in the middle of writing this when Ziggy the Wondercat went ALL KINDS OF CRAZY and attacked Fiona Falafel (who he has been getting along with quite well lately). It’s been like 30 minutes & he’s still all hissy and growly (I had to separate them). I have NEVER seen him like that before & have NO IDEA what happened. He was sitting in the window in the living room & looked like he ate something he wasn’t supposed to, so I went to check him out. He jumped out of the window & attacked Fiona Falafel, yet she seems concerned about him.
Cats are very strange.
So, um, I think I covered the restaurant & spicy foods stuff. I now have no paragraph to wind it up. Again, the cats are weird.
