Ban Hat Rawai

After a long day of doing absolutely nothing at the hotel (ie: gym time, pool time, beach time, jet skiing, massages…torturous I know!) we figured it was time to get out and headed 45min south toward the tip of Phuket Island to Promthep Cape to check out the beautiful sunset.  The long hot muggy ride…

Sea Hag

Apologies for my absence from the blogosphere.  I’ve found myself at a bit of a transition in my life, ending one chapter and starting a new one.  Hopefully, this next chapter will leave me less overworked and underfed, which will allow for new and different food adventures.  To kick things off, I’ll be blogging about…

Red Onion

It’s official, I LOVE Thai food.  I love the harmonious interplay of bold flavors: sour, sweet, spicy, salty.  It’s probably the food I crave the most when I’ve gone a period of time without it.  It’s a good thing Dumpling Man also likes Thai food, but his version of Thai food is limited to Thai…

Portland Food Carts

Red Corner Asia

So I used to be a big fan of Palms Thai. Between Elvis, the hours, the plentitude of seating, and the delicious food, how could you ask for more?! Plus, a thai friend in med school gave Palms here seal of genuine Thai approval. When someone with 5 syllables in their last name says a…
