More Food Options in Survey

April 18, 2009

Thanks to Ann and Emily, I got new ideas for surveys to capture your opinions.  I have updated the survey to reflect more choices in favorite foods.  It was ironic that the day after the first survey posting that I went for Thai and had forgot Thai on the survey. Then Ann reminded me how she loved Thai and Indian food with a get recommendation in the Conchy area just outside Philly. So I added Indian, then I added Caribbean and then an option to add your own favorite.  So please take the survey, pick or add your own choice and let see which cuisine remains supreme.

Bambi Elephant Please

April 17, 2009

Work took me to the Raritan, NJ area this morning and since I work there for about five years I remembered Thai Kitchen for lunch.  It’s just down the road from where I was visiting.  I found this ironic since the poll I created yesterday didn’t include Thai as a choice (take the poll if you haven’t) 

Not much had chanced in this shopping center eaterysince my last visit a couple of months back .  The restaurant turns tables quickly but keeps customers coming back with good food, quick service and good value.  For $12 including a 20% tip, I got a delicious a crispy Thai Egg Roll, Shrimp Pad Thai and a Thai Ice Tea.

Pad Thai, Thai Spring Roll and Thai Ice Tea = $12

Pad Thai, Thai Spring Roll and Thai Ice Tea = $12

 

The lightly fried Thai Egg Roll contained cabbage, glass noodles and carrots.  It was served with a gentle sweet and sour sauce.  The Pad Thai was a delite with nice mixtures of hot smooth Thai rice noodles and cold crispy bean sprouts, crunchy peanuts and turnips along with soft tofu and egg. I choose shrimp, rather than chicken, pork or squid, to complete the dish.  The waiter did ask me how hot I liked it.  The menu had a scale of one to five very red elephants.  Given I come from the Great White North and haven’t built up a good tolerence to heat even after 8 years in the USA, I went for one Elephant. The waiter suggested I go for a”Bambi Elephant”.  LOL but I went for it.  In retrospect I think I could handle a whole Elephant or even two (big day for me).

 

If you are in the Raritan/Bridgewater be sure to check out the Thai Kitchen.
