One of the things Thailand is known for is its food. While the most famous dishes are things like Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, and Pat See Yu, here are some others, including my new favorite ice cream creation!
Firstly, here are a couple of fish we had at picnic not too long ago. Later that afternoon I found the artistic version at a nearby coffee shop called Mosaic.
To celebrate Rob’s getting in shape, we took a trip to the Chiang Mai Subway. It was the first time in a long time I got the delectable Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki. No $5 foot-longs here… In fact, Subway is a more high society (or “hi-so”) restaurant in Chiang Mai, which makes it a rare treat.
Out to lunch with one of my Thai friends, I ordered the famous Chiang Mai dish Khao Soi. Khao Soi has a reputation for being dangerously prone to splattering. This massive bowl helped against the splatter but was hopeless to protect my tie, which I had slung over my shoulder. Half way into the meal, my tie slipped off my shoulder and into the Khao Soi. Goodbye, Pink Tie…
As somewhat of an ice cream aficionado, I have fallen in love with this new ice cream, which in Thai is pronounced, “I Teem Pat.” You pick out your base flavor (in liquid form) and two toppings. Then, they pour it over a freezing slab and swish it around until it begins to ice-creamify. Afterwards, they spread it out and scrape it off into little scrolls of deliciousness.
