Thank you for organizing another wonderful event and it was good to see greyelf again.
The food was wonderfully spiced and season and served in a great presentation.
Loved the Herb Sausage, Yum Koh Moo Yang and Beef with young black peppercorn. These dishes were the highlight of the meal for me.
Everything else was just fine but some dish were just stand out.
It is great to have more events for us hounds to enjoy.
Thanks to Ruth for a wonderful wine which top off the meal.
Thank you for organizing and doing such a good job of ordering. When I took my first bite (of the grilled pork shoulder salad) I knew this was "real" Thai food, with all the tangy, savory, herbal flavors and plenty of heat. I also particularly liked the beef jerky and the sea bass in spicy sour soup. The soup was an interesting presentation: a whole fish on a platter with some broth, and then a whole separate tureen (one of those steel basins with a sterno chimney) with more broth and chunks of fish.
