A great bunch of people at my favourite Thai restaurant. The combination couldn’t be better.
Love the refreshing chili spiciness that all good Thai food possess. It’s not raw chili power that you’ll often find in Malay cuisine (such as gulai pedas), but a much more subtle and refined experience that is masked by strong sour overtones. The tartness hits you first, and the chili spice, sneaks up behind. The tickle is dominantly felt on the lips, less on the tongue and palate. Just delightful.
