Masaman Curry: Masaman coconut milk curry w onions, potatoes, pineapple and peanut w chicken - 2+

J's comment > curry on the thin side, but soooo tasty; interesting technique respecting the potatoes, I believe the kitchen put in the potatoes at the last minute as the potatoes were all firm, cooked for sure, but not in the 'melty' way that I like; chicken was OK.

#6 Khiew Krob: Deep fried crispy wontons stuffed w ground pork w Thai sweet chili sauce - 2

J's comment > very crispy but could have used a lot more ground pork, or more filling for that matter.

#36 Pad Thai: Stir-fried thin rice noodles w tamarind sauce, scramble egg, bean sprouts, green onions, tofu and ground peanuts w chicken - 2

J's comment > not bad, but definitely pales next to the curry above

#12 Tom Yum soup: Hot and sour broth w spices, mushroom, fresh lemongrass and lime w chicken - 2

Steamed coconut rice - 2

J's comment > very coconuty for sure, but a bit on the sticky side

#46 Black Rice Pudding: A warm, sweet, black rice pudding and taro, served w young coconut slices drizzled w coconut syrup - 2

J's comment > not bad, lovely texture, but a bit hard to discern any flavor other than the black rice pudding - couldn't really get the young coconut slices nor the coconut syrup.

#44 Deep Fried Banana w vanilla ice cream - 2

J's comment > not bad, a really good fry on the banana, nice and crisp on the outside, mushy banana on the inside, just the way I like it, but still hinging on the average side.

Thai Ice Tea - 2
