Spicy and sour soup with black cod – Little Uncle

Spicy and sour soup with black cod - Little Uncle
Lemongrass, galangal, lime leaf, cherry tomatoes, chanterelle mushrooms, served with rice. $10.95
Little Uncle, Seattle WA

This soup was very similar to the flavors of a traditional tom yum, but I really wanted it to be more spicy as advertised in its description. I think it was more sour than anything, and I like sour but some heat would have been much appreciate. I loved the large chunks of black cod in the soup and the chanterelle mushrooms were a nice change up for Thai food. Overall it was tasty.

Green curry scallops - Zadin
Seared sea scallops served on a bed of spinach noodles in a spicy galangal coconut green curry sauce. Toppped with green papaya, zucchini, and fried basil. $20
Zadin, San Francisco CA

This was a weird dish, and I’m not sure it was a successful one. The spinach noodles and green curry sauce didn’t taste amazing together, and the seared scallops just seemed like an afterthought.
