One Night in Bangkok

February 12, 2012

in bakeries/cafes/dessert places, dessert, dinner, restaurant

I stayed home all of yesterday to prepare for an audition, so when the sun went down, I was eager for some quality time with Abe’s parents…


…we took them out to one of our favorite Thai places, Ruen Pair – which was packed at 6pm:


Pineapple Fried Rice – ordered with tofu instead of chicken/shrimp – comes with egg, onion, tomatoes, green onion, and cashew nuts


Pa Nang – Chicken with peanut curry paste in coconut milk


The requisite Morning Glory…


…Pad Thai with shrimp…


…and rice


The only mediocre dish was the Rahd Nah – flat rice noodles with Chinese Broccoli and Fried Tofu


Everything else (as usual) was great!

Eaten family style…


…I cleared three large, packed plates:

Afterwards, we headed across the parking lot to Bhan Kanom Thai



I adore this place, but never have enough stomach room to eat anything fresh from the counter (I’ll have to come BEFORE dinner next time)

Still, it’s fun just to poke around…


…there’s A LOT to look at…


…they even have imported potato chips!


Ultimately, we bought some intriguing snacks for a later date…


…plus some sweets for brunch…


…which we’re off to soon!

Broccoli chips!! Cool! I haven’t ever seen such a thing. I think those are my husband’s ultimate nightmare food, although I am sure I would like ‘em.

That PadThai looks to DIE for, I haven’t had pad thai in so long… but that picture is making me think of gettin’ sum tonight ! haha. I love it when it has oodles of bean sprouts.

We eat a lot of Thai food here, too, but I’m not familiar with Morning Glory. What is that?

Pineapple fried rice?! Sounds and looks delicious!! I love imported snacks. American brand foods made in other countries taste SOOOO much better!!
