Three things I seldom do, if ever: (1) trek up to Harlem for dinner, (2) order a seafood starter; (3) go for steak at a Thai place.
But if my trip to Thai Market taught me anything, it’s that sometimes change is good…Great.
Pan-Roasted minced salmon, lemongrass, galanga, bird’s eye chili, mint, and scallion. Green leaves. I always get these wraps with chicken or veggies. It was the first time I had it with salmon, which might have been slightly too fish-ey for me, considering I’m still not used to the fish taste…I’m trying, trying to change…
Flat rice noodle, chicken, Thai basil, bird’s eye chili, tomato, bok choi. Loved this. If you like spicy food with lots of basil taste, go for this. Yes.
Marinated, served sliced, w/ sauteed vegetable, Chili garlic puree, sticky rice (we have mushroom rice instead). OK. This. Rocked. My. World. We ordered it medium/rare, which I never do. My steaks are always well done, but this was a good mix of juicy and spicy. I can’t take total credit — it was totally on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area. With the chili garlic puree, tasted so yum — would have never try this but I still salivate thinking about it.
