Na Na Thai Update

Yesterday, Becka took some photos while we ate at Na Na Thai in Bloomington. She is very good with a lens and managed to capture some of the exceptionally brilliant light coming in through the window. The food was delicious as usual, and we were pretty stuffed when we left. I really wanted to try one of their salads, but the waiter informed me that they were not entree salads - though they were priced only about a dollar cheaper than the entrees.

Becka had the Kang Pa Curry with chicken, which had a very prominent basil flavor. It was based on a red curry without coconut milk. It was very tasty, but unfortunately, not attractive enough to feature here. I had the Pad Se Ew with shrimp which was pretty sweet and a bit boring. Many of you probably know that I'm not a huge fan of sweet, but I was able to add tons of red chili sauce which contributed complexity to the dish. Broccoli was a major component of the dish, including the leaves, which I'm not fond of. All in all, I enjoyed it, but probably won't order it again. We also had Chicken Satays and Thai Egg Rolls. The satays had been marinated in a decent sauce and were seared nicely. They came with a nice Cucumber Salad and a Peanut Sauce that was bit thick and gravy like. The Thai Egg Rolls were filled very meagerly with chicken, carrots, and transparent mushrooms. It seemed as if there was more wrapper than filling, but they were still delicious, crispy, and greasy. The filling was very flavorful and the dipping sauce was excellent - sort of a Thai Sweet and Sour sauce.
