It's been a while since I've been this motivated - to write a food review right after the night of the meal. So what's with this efficiency this time? The answer is - Thai food.
As a compensation for not showing up to two gatherings in a row, I was asked to arrange a Thai dinner for them. It was quite a challenge, because these friends were very internationalized. I couldn't take them to that notable franchise and hope that they'd be satisfied with that. I couldn't just take them to my casual Thai place, either. But how in the world could I find an authentic Thai place? I found this place through web search. Apparently, it's run by a Thai food chain - S&P. I guess that's enough reason to give it a try. I was there with extremely high expectations!
There's seating in front of the counter, in case you need to wait for friends or wait for your table to be ready.
The interior design was alright. Not too fancy. the lighting was also just right.
Decorations on the wall.
I was quite excited to see Beer Chang on the drink list, but unfortunately they were out. So it's the same old Singha Beer.
First up, is som tam, I'm sure many are familiar with this.
Krapao Gai (fried chicken with basil leaves) is another familiar and popular dish.
Shrimp sauce fried veggies.
I took charge of ordering the food. But it was quite a difficult task, as there were so many I wanted to try (that can't be found in other places). But there were only five of us, so I had to be careful with what I order.
湯的部分因為大家比較熟悉的是"tom yam koong"（酸辣鮮蝦湯），所以天仙這次特別介紹另一種風味："tom kha gai"『冬佧該』（椰漿酸辣雞湯）
Everyone is familiar with the shrimp "tom yam", so I decided to let my friends try something else: tom kha - which has cocoanut milk in the soup.
清蒸檸檬鱸魚 Steamed fish with lemon sauce
雞肉沙嗲（也有豬肉）一定要沾醬吃才好吃 Chicken satay, do try it with the sauce!
You can see the rice in this picture. The way Thai people usually eat is with spoon and fork. Chopsticks are used for Chinese food and noodles.
香蘭葉包雞 Chicken wrapped in pandanus leaf
不喜歡吃辣的人一定會喜歡這個！Those who can't take spicy food will surely enjoy this.
The most exciting thing of all was that they served 'mango sticky rice"! I don't understand. It's one of the most straight-forward, easy to make desserts of all Thai desserts. But this is the first time I've actually seen a place do it right. I can stand the ice cream, because you can just leave it if you don't want it. But there should just be mango, cocoanut milk, and sticky rice! It's not the same thing if you make it any other way!
We didn't get to try these, but I think these should also be worth trying:
酸辣生蝦 Thai style raw shrimp
酸辣拌海鮮Spicy Seafood Blend
東北碎肉包生菜 Minced meat with lettuce
河粉 Pad Thai
蟹肉炒飯 Fried rice with crab meat
冬佧（海鮮）Tom Kha tale(seafood)
They didn't ask me how spicy we wanted our food. Other than the fact that it wasn't spicy enough for me, everything else basically met my expectations. Do remember to ask them to make it spicier if that's how you like it!
