These were taken in Bangkok, Thailand, Oct 2009.
I will never forget this plate of phad Thai. This was how I imagined the epitome of the flavor of phad thai should be. My tour guide Dan brought me here because I said I wanted the best phad thai in the city. I thought he would take me to a side street restaurant but no, this was inside a mall. I forgot which.
He said this restaurant in the mall was famous. The phad thai was so good I ordered two.
This crispy catfish dish was taken in Taling Pling Gastrocafe in the mall that was burnt during the demonstrations against the Thai government. It was pretty spicy but I loved it.
I need to get back there. If only for the food.
