Thai Food Friday

I think we kind of officially meet every Friday at AP's now. And though the group gets larger or smaller each week, Panne never fails us. Last week was a table full of fish dishes and this week we reprised some curries we'd already tried.


We started off with the curry rolls which are a real treat. We don't get them very often because they are very tedious to make.







Then she brought out those wonderful Thai egg rolls with the unctuous sauce and the green lettuce leaves to wrap them in. One of my favorites of the appetizers.







Next came the papaya salad, spicy hot, fresh and very healthy tasting. We wrapped the salad in an unfamiliar bitter tasting leaf that made the entire mouthful an explosion of heat and flavor.





The main course was green curry with Thai eggplants and little skeins of noodles, spicy and boldly flavorful, this is a regular dish for us here. Becoming a lot like comfort food to me. That and the noodle soup.





All things must come to an end. If you want to meet up with us next Friday, drop me a line at greg at circabellum.com and I'll get you the details. We'll make you feel at home...
