How do I put into words how much I miss authentic Thai food? Most of the Thai food restaurants found here in Taiwan are a fusion between Yunnan, Burmese, and Thai style cuisine. It's been a while since I had Thai food of any kind, so I thought anything resembling Thai food would have to do. The reason why we decided to come here this time, was because the previous day, we were also at another Thai food restuarant, but because there were a couple of people in our group that could not take spicy food, almost the entire meal comprised of non-spicy Thai food. And if you enjoy Thai food enough, you'll know that no Thai food is Thai enough without its spicy taste.
Thus to satisfy my craving for spicy Thai food, we picked this restaurant that was closest to us. I had not read any reviews and had not dined here prior to this. We were here to explore.
Spicy seafood salad 涼拌海鮮沙拉
It didn't taste 'Thai' enough, but it was delicious nonetheless.
Spicy fried chicken 辣炒雞肉
Again, not 'Thai' enough. But this time, there is nothing too special about this dish.
Curry shrimp 咖哩蝦
The mild curry helps you down your rice.
Shrimp paste fried veggies 蝦醬青菜
One of the favourite dishes amongst Taiwanese.
Tom yam goong. 泰式酸辣鮮蝦湯
I think this is what made the entire meal worthwhile. It was absolutely delicious. A good Tom yam soup is very difficult to make. I've tried making this by following recipes, but still fail to produce something that resembles it. So in the end, the meal was absolutely worth it (although it's still not very spicy).
This was a meal for TWO!
