Yesterday’s lunch featured my eternal life debate: pad Thai or curry? I love Thai food—lately, even more so than sushi, which is huge. It’s so hard for me to choose between pad Thai and curry, and I always leave wanting the other. Both are so delicious.
My friend Katie introduced me to a Thai place I hadn’t been to called Thai Café in downtown Orlando. It’s a hole-in-the-wall place with not very many tables and not a lot of pizazz. They don’t even have a website.
The place was simple and unassuming, but the food tasted just as good as any other Thai place I have been to. Everything had a lot of traditional flavors, and the prices were extremely reasonable.
We started out with an order of summer rolls because all Thai meals should start with peanut sauce.
They have daily specials, which I took advantage of. One of their specials was the yellow curry, which as a part of the special came with spring rolls and ginger salad.
The spring rolls were good but were nothing compared to the summer rolls. I just adore summer rolls.
I chose tofu as my protein with my curry, and I was pleased that there was plenty of tofu throughout. The curry was very good, although a little milder in seasonings than other curries I’ve had. That didn’t stop me from cleaning my plate. I love when the rice soaks up all the curry sauce.
Katie ordered Penang curry with chicken.
I was stuffed well into the evening after our filling lunch.
