Food in Mouth

Khao soi at Pams Real Thai

I don't like volcanoes. In fact, you could probably say that I hate volcanoes. Sure, sure, the lava it spews out makes for cool looking islands in Hawaii but hey... when it spews out ash clouds and cancels flights... well, it throws the tail end of a vacation all outta wack. So instead of more France talk, I'll talk about Thai food! Prior to my trip to France I had a good lunch at Pam's Real Thai with James of The Eaten Path.

Previously at Pam's Real Thai, I had things like pad kee mao and pad krapow. But never a northern Thai delicacy like khao soi. It's got a curry broth that's coconut based and it's fantabulous. The noodles are egg noodles, but they add a fried version of the noodles on top along with some fried shallots. If you ever see khao soi on the menu anywhere... just get it.

We also got this shredded chicken dish that was a little weird. It had a sweetness that I wasn't a fan of, but thankfully it came in such a small package that there wasn't much to eat anyway.

The third portion of the meal was anchovy fried rice, which was probably stir fried with some anchovy paste? And then the other ingredients of the fried rice dish was presented in a deconstructed manner. It came with some sliced mangoes, pork, egg, and red onions. Mixing the ingredients together provides a balanced flavor and a more complex textural contrast. But really, I could eat the rice straight up. Obviously not for those of you who don't like anchovies... because every bite of the rice taste of anchovies.

I have more to say about France in general as far as what it was like, all the pastries I ate after the last post y'all saw... and why my airline, Delta, sucks so much. Since tomorrow is Friday and I don't have to give you a real food review, tomorrow will be rant day! Stay tuned...
