New dish

No, not that kind, you gossip fiends. I'm very much enjoying the self-imposed lack of socialization of the last week or so. However, no woman is an island, and I do get hungry from time to time, so when a good friend asked me to join him at Mom's Siam last night for dinner, I could not resist.

Nestled at the very bottom of Carytown, Mom's Siam is a staple for Thai-loving Richmonders, and the outdoor patio is to die for. Last night was simply as good as it gets, weather-wise, so we dined al fresco and caught up on our recent life happenings.

Rather innocuously, I ordered a noodle dish for the first time, the Pad See Ew (I think there may be different ways to spell it, and since I forgot to grab a to-go menu, I'll just have to go with the one came up on google). Wide, flat rice noodles with a light sweet soy sauce, pork and broccoli, this dish was absolute heaven. Creamy in texture, and comfortingly filling, without being too heavy for the spring, I could not get enough.

I love when out of nowhere a dish hits you and suddenly becomes your favorite, beckoning you back time and time again until another flavor combination steals your heart away. Like a new lover, I couldn't resist having it again in the morning. Dinner leftovers for breakfast are something that I rarely indulge in, but it was all I could think about when I woke up this morning.

I will be back for more. Soon. Often. Tonight? Perhaps.

Oh my god I love Pad See Iew (that's how it's spelled on menus where I live)! And curry puffs! Anything Thai.

I've been reading your blog for a while and this is my first comment?

I hope you don't think I'm crazy I just love food. And Pad See Iew is delish!

Kat - I'm psyched that you commented! And I went back for more Pad See-whatever last night and looked for curry puffs on the menu but they didn't have any. :(
