Though my experiences with it have been limited, I am head-over-heels for the dish pad peaw warn. Seriously. It's my new favorite (international) food. If I had to pick my last meal on earth, this would be it.
So all fawning aside, we tried a new Thai restaurant the other night, Ploy Siam in Robbinsville, NJ. Snazzy place (without being too expensive), super-beautifully detailed interior (the mood lighting made for semi-dark pictures), attentive service, and aaaawesome food.
We started the meal with Thai stick, which is crispy fried string beans, sweet potatoes, eggplant, and onion. Basically, a perfectly executed Thai-spin on tempura: so good.
I got my favorite, as mentioned, pad peaw warn: sweet and sour sauce with mixed vegetables and pineapple. Yum and yum. Cute Colin went with one of his favorites, musamun curry (next time with NO mushrooms!) with EXTRA spice. Level 4! I stuck with Level 1. When it comes to spice, I know my limits.
We ended the meal with a traditional Thai dessert: mango sticky rice. HOLY. The most amazing combination ever of sweet sticky rice, fresh perfectly-ripened mango, and coconut milk sauce. Plus, perfectly shaped into an adorable little heart.
Do you think they knew we're in love?
