Khao soi gai. Made with their own coconut milk and curry paste, pickled mustard, fried shallots, red onion, lime, sprouts, fried noodles. $8.80 Little Uncle, Seattle WA
Wow, this was really tasty and I loved all the different textures and the curried broth was amazing. It was also cute that they give you the dried chili flakes and spices in the wax paper so you could add it to taste. The place is really just a pick-up window in the middle of the block with a couple benches along the wall. I really like it this way way though. It’s no frills, but the food is delicious!
Mmm, this was really tasty! I loved that the duck still had all its bones because they’re always more flavorful that way. I just wish there was more duck in there! The rich coconut curry was delicious and very filling.
Spicy curry with green chilies, coconut milk, bamboo shoots, Thai aubergines and lime leaves. Set Menu A £11.80 per person
Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar, London ENGLAND
Yuck, this green curry was gross! It had a thick, gloppy consistency and was utterly unappetizing. There was also an odd bitter taste that I couldn’t figure out. Definitely one of the worst Thai curries I’ve tasted.
Coconut milk chicken soup with mushrooms. Set Menu A £11.80 per person
Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar, London ENGLAND
Wow, this set menu was a great deal! Unfortunately, the food was horrible. This soup was probably the highlight of the meal. Everything else that follow was poorly prepared and odd tasting. Hmm, I would say that maybe I’m just used to American Thai food but I’ve spent a month and a half traveling through Thailand so I have a decent idea of what authentic Thai food should taste like. And this wasn’t even close! 😦
The Sherlock Holmes Pub. We were walking from Trafalgar Sqaure to the London Eye when we passed this establishment. I thought it looked charming so I snapped a quick pic.
Local shellfish (mussels, shrimp, fish), coconut milk, soffrito and croutons. $22.50 Bossa Nova, San Francisco CA
This is my favorite dish at Bossa Nova and I order it every time. Unfortunately, this time around they served it without any bread and it took a while to get the waitress’ attention afterward. That was a bit careless, but this seafood stew is so warm and comforting that it quickly eases any frustration. Mmm!
Beef in medium red curry sauce (coconut milk based) and fresh basil. A la carte $10.95 Thai House Express, San Francisco CA
I really like the panang curry at Thai House Express. It has a wonderfully rich flavor and the beef is almost always juicy and tender. I did have it once when the beef was dry and stringy, ew. I once had a visitor from Thailand and I took him here. He ordered everything in Thai and requested that the dishes be prepared “Thai spicy”. Omg, I could barely eat anything! It was SO spicy. That just reinforces the fact that “American spicy” isn’t really spicy at all. But I will say that even when I was traveling in the outer provinces of Thailand, they didn’t prepare food as spicy as Thai House Express that night.

The Castro. The large rainbow flag marks your arrival to the fun and diverse neighborhood located in the middle of The City.
Infused with green curry, lime and coconut milk, with “plantains” bananas, tomato, and asparagus. €24 Do Brazil, Gustavia, SAINT BARTHELEMY
This dish was beautifully presented and deceivingly large. I think they put the entire baby rooster in there, lol! The dish was delicious but on the mild (plain) side. When surrounded by ginormous burgers and sweet potato fries at the table, this dish appeared too tame and proper. This could have been helped with a little more spice in the curry.
Complimentary bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Omg, this bread was SO good! I don’t know where they get it. It was perfectly crusty on the outside and so soft and airy on the inside. Noms!
