Thai food

In the spirit of it being our 8th wedding anniversary the Husband booked us a table at my favourite Thai restaurant in town. The grandparents were on baby sitting duty and we had a rare night out !

We may live in a small Norfolk market town but we're lucky in as much as we have a couple of pubs which do great food, a lovely Indian restaurant which also does (quite slow on occasions) delivery, a great Chinese and this fantastic little Thai restaurant.

I love Thai food but can't always deal with the heat. I adore spicy food but just can't do blisteringly hot - unlike the Husband. He doesn't quite subscribe to the same idea as my Dad - a good curry burns twice - but he's not far off.

Being rather unadventerous last night, we went for the set menu, but what is there not to like ?

We got a dish of mixed starters which included satay, steamed dumplings, thai fishcakes, prawn spring rolls and accompanied by 6 little pots of dips.

With our appetites suitable whetted the mains arrived. Now this must be the worst picture in the world but it shows what we had. From the top, anti-clockwise beef in oyster sauce, the biggest juiciest prawns in a spicy sweet and sour like sauce, egg fried rice with a green curry fragrant with a gentle heat and stir fried veg.

After that we were suitably full but it was all washed down with a Macon-Villages chardonnay.

The service was excellent, the bill reasonable and the company - well what can I say !!
