Rice cake with lamb curry – Trove

Rice cake with lamb curry - Trove
Northern Thai, kale. $13
Trove, Seattle WA

Again, this was another dish that I enjoyed the flavors from, but the salt level was astronomical! We could only eat a few bites before our tastebuds were shot.

Chipotle pad thai – Trove

Chipotle pad thai - Trove
Pork belly, yu choy, chili peanut. $13
Trove, Seattle WA

This tasted fine, but it was so far from a pad thai that it didn’t hit the spot and left me wanting more. This dish was also pretty salty like the previous dumplings. The pork belly  and chili peanuts tasted good though.

Tacoma Fashioned cocktail - Trove
Tacoma Fashioned: bourbon, Rainier beer syrup, Angostura and orange bitters. $9

Curry “laksa” – Betelnut Restaurant

Curry laksa - Betelnut Restaurant
Chicken, prawns, tofu, lo mein noodle, mint, basil. $14.50
Betelnut Restaurant, San Francisco CA

Meh, I wasn’t too impressed with this laksa. It seemed a little watered down to me. I wish there was more depth of flavor and a kick to it.
