On Sunday, we had a busy day at the air show (see previous post), and we had to run some errands, no time for cooking.
We ended up at our favorite chop suey house, Kin Wah, for a late lunch.
- Special Plate “A”
From bottom, beef with broccoli, gon lo mein, rice, three crispy won tons, and lemon chicken, all for six dollars, mmm, what a deal. At first, The Cat wasn’t going to eat since she already ate at the air show. But when the food came she ordered fried rice, and choi sum with sauce on the side (must be a Pavlovian response).

For dinner, The Cat wanted more vegetables, so we headed to Bangkok Chef in town for Pad Raumit #16 (stir-fried vegetables and tofu)(I’ve posted about this previously).

I wasn’t in the mood for any hot or spicy food (it was kind of hot on Sunday). I ordered the fish patties plate #2. Fried fish cake patties. I liked it, The Cat, not so much (The Cat has a dislike of fishcake).

I really liked the brown jasmine rice. The grains didn’t stick together, the texture was almost like eating fried rice (without the oil).
The Cat wanted to try the Thai iced coffee but she was concerned it might be too caffeinated, so she had her Thai iced tea instead.

The table next to us came to Bangkok Chef only for dessert. One of their desserts was a green tapioca. We thought it was green tea flavored tapioca. It turned out to be pandan flavored tapioca. Here’s more information about pandan: http://thaifood.about.com/od/glossary/g/pandanleaf.htm. It had a kind of green herb taste, not bad.

The dessert looks a little sloppy, The Cat dove in before I could get a picture.
A full day (both in activities and food). I’m is returning to my diet and ku ding cha on Monday.
