When you’re a food person (I don’t know if I’m a foodie) one of the best moments is when you discover a great new restaurant or a brand new dish that has become a new favorite! Both of these things happened today for me thanks to my good friend Erdbeere! Nothing like good friends and good food. 🙂 We ate at Siam Cuisine in Nashville. It’s a Thai restaurant in case you didn’t catch it by the name. There were spring rolls, Tom Ka Gai and we even had this curry shrimp that was brought out in a pineapple!
But the awesome and major discovery for me was the Mango Sticky Rice which is amazing & in house made coconut icecream. All of our other food was really good, but I now have a special place in my heart for Mango Sticky Rice! It had fresh slices of Mango laid around the edge of the plate, hugging a mound of warm rice in the middle, which was coated with a sweet coconut flavored syrup and some sesame seeds. The way I liked to eat it was by getting a little bit of both rice and mango on my fork at once. It was sweet and tart and comforting all at the same time. Oyshee!!!
You know I’ll be back to Siam Cuisine to try more dishes and for more desserts. The coconut ice cream said, “Don’t forget about little ole me!”. It was some of the best ice cream I’ve had. So smooth, creamy and refreshing. Oh I won’t forget! 😉
