Good Eats: Hot Food on a Cold Night

Our mild weather has given way to winter with a vengeance. It was pretty chilly the other night as Dylan and I walked past a favorite local restaurant, Kamrai Thai

We decided to pop in for Dylan's favorite food in the world, Pad Thai Noodles with fried tofu. They always remember exactly what he wants when he waltzes in. His food is half way cooked by the time I order. I often get their spicy garlic eggplant dish because, well, I love eggplant. 

This time I felt like something to warm me up. The ever reliable Tom Ka Gai soup would have done the job, but I went for the green curry with tofu.

It was practically a soup anyway. The green beans and other veggies were lightly cooked, how I like it, and were still in the process of soaking in all the flavor when I started into it. The last bites were way better than the first, and actually, this dish was outstanding cold the next morning, like a Thai gazpacho. 

I've had quite a few items on their menu over the years and it's all good. I'm happy they have survived the economy and somewhat tough location. Kamrai does seem to have quite a few international students from nearby Shoreline Community College coming in, usually ordering 4 and 5 star spicy dishes. Not for me, these days. I ordered the green curry at 2 stars and let the subtle burn and delicious Thai flavors warm me on this mid-winter night.
