Thai Cuisine - Ithaca (3rd visit)
I went here the other night and it's definitely one of the finer Thai places in NY. Every time I've been I like to try something new. I've had a lot of seafood dishes and last time there my entree was the roasted duck which is incredible. This time around, I had a special appetizer, a beef entree and a small dessert.
App: Pork stuffed Chicken Wings - only 3 of them for $7, but absolutely worth it. Would have ordered more if I wasn't so stuffed from the meal. Fat ends with the bone replaced by pork, chopped noodle and spices, in a deep fried chicken wing, served with a sriracha and a sweet and sour sauce. Absolutely incredible.
Entree: Gaeng Daeng - Beef in Thai red curry with coconut milk, fresh chili peppers, Thai eggplants, bamboo shoots and Thai sweet basil. Served with a tiny side of pickled cabbage and cauliflower and a bowl of rice. Incredible flavors. If there was one complaint, it was the lack of heat, but the flavor made up for it. $13.95
Dessert: Thai Iced Coffee - flavored with cream, sugar and cardamom. Delicious. A little small at $3.50, but honestly, couldn't have eaten or drank much more.
My fellow diners has the roast duck and a seafood pad thai special covered in clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops. They both loved theirs. They had a mango mousse and coconut ice cream for dessert. I only tried the ice cream, which had bits of mango chopped up inside.
With a $32 drink tab, can't really complain about $39 per person before tip
