So finally I’ve tackled that audit assignment and have finally had some time to update… The boy has recently been obsessed with Thai Food! So one afternoon, we decided to go to Castle Towers and guess what cuisine we chose to have?
Steamed Thai Jasmine Rice with Peanut Sauce ($4.50)
Loved this dish! it’s presented really nicely but then I already had satay sauce with the satay chicken skewers (below) so maybe I should have ordered a pad thai or some other noodles instead. The sauce was alright but had quite substantial chunks of peanuts in it whereas I usually prefer mine a bit more smooth yet thick…
Petite Chicken Satay – 8 Skewers ($6.90)
Petite indeed! I have never seen chicken skewers so tiny! But I thought it was cute! Bite sized skewers of marinated chicken breast char-grilled served with homemade peanut sauce and a cucumber relish. I loved how they provided two sauces to mix it up… One thick and heavy.. the other light and tangy
Red Spoon Stuffed Squid ($21.90)
Fried squid stuffed with marinated minced chicken and vermicelli, garlic, fungi and the Red Spoon’s special sauce. Minced chicken? I couldn’t tell? Maybe because of the overpowering crispy texture of that GIGANTIC squid! I guess it’s one of their specials for a reason =)
Crispy soft shell crab with papaya salad ($10.90)
This dish is a combination of shredded green papaya with lime juice, roasted peanuts, green beans and tomatoes served with soft battered deep fried soft shell crab. The salad had a nice tangy chilli sauce and I just couldn’t stop eating it! By the end of the meal my lips were burning but it was definately well worth it!
So that’s the end of this entry. Keep tuned as I try to clear out a backlog!
