Thai Basil

June 30, 2014

#33 Combo of #21 Panang Curry: Thick red curry w lychee, peanuts, lime leaves & chicken, served w brown rice, salad and spring roll stuffed w cabbage, carrot, vermicelli - 2

J's comment > not bad; curry was very tasty but could have used a lot more sauce - barely enough for half the portion of rice you see there; the lychee (canned) was a nice touch, but slightly too sweet for this curry; chicken pieces were very generous and tender; rice was slightly nutty but a tad hard and could have been washed once more; spring roll was of the avg sort, not too crispy but lots of vermicelli filler on the inside

Prawns in Crispy Wrap: Tiger prawns wrapped in wonton wrap, served w plum sauce - 2

J's comment > wonton wrapper was crisp where it wasn't in contact w the shrimp, which leads me to believe the shrimp wasn't dried enough before wrapping & frying; oh, and the shrimp was definitely of the defrosted variety 

Mango sticky rice: Sweet sticky rice with mango topped with coconut cream - 2

J's comment > not bad; served warm w fresh mango; mango was very sweet; sticky rice was good, not too hard, but could have used more coconut cream
