One Night in Bangkok

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…

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…

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

    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.

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