I had the opportunity to catch up with my best friend of over 20 years this past weekend.My best friend Nisa just happens to be half Thai and I told her that I was ready to experience Thai Food finally. She took me to this little family style Thai Restaurant in Bloomfield NJ.I knew I was mentally ready to try something new and exciting. This was the perfect weekend to catch up with a really great friend and share great conversation over a lovely meal that she picked out for me.
My first course was Mussels that was in a lemon grass broth. I have never had mussels before and don't think I will be trying that again. But no worries my best fried told me that if I didn't want to eat them that she would eat the rest.
I was able to eat an alternative which was spring rolls and it was so yummy. Sorry but I forgot to take a pic of that.
My second course meal was a Pad Tai which was delicious. It has shrimp which is my favorite with bean sprouts,tofu,carrots,noodles,eggs and some other ingredients. Let's just say we finished that bowl.
Last but not least the last course was one of my favorites which was Mango with Coconut Sticky Rice.Mango is one of my favorite fruits and of course that was the first thing to go. Not sure where the sticky rice comes in but when you eat the two together it is a really nice combination.
To top this meal off I was introduced to a Thai Tea. This tea was different because it had milk in it. I was shocked when it came out but when I actually convinced myself to taste it I was quite surprised that it was not that bad. I still like the original ice tea with lemon and sugar but it was cool to do something different for a change.
My overall experience was great and I am so lucky that I have friends that are of all nationalities and that I am able to experience all of these wonderful foods from around the world.
What will I try next???
