A proper lunch date at Thai Lahna
Telling myself here not to get caught up or expecting the moon. Our emotions do that to us sometimes.
Today JP called and asked what was I doing (I was working) and did I want to join him for lunch. Did I?
He called two hours later to say he was heading my way and that we needed to find something tasty to eat. I suggested Thai, Indian (Native American) or Cambodian, all are fairly close to me. He opted for Thai, which I love and don't get enough of.
Around the corner from the kitchen wench is Thai Lahna. It is a simple mom and pop place, with a bursting (huge) menu. JP ordered for us (a nice touch I thought): chicken and green beans in a spicy sauce, pad thai with chicken and shrimp and todd munn (fish cakes). A thai tea for me and a thai coffee for him.
Lunch was tasty and leisurely. We are getting to know each other over food (and ballgames).
The kitchen wench could get used to this.
And I got to take home the green beans and rice. Yummy! It's spicy enough that if you have allergies like I do, they will clear you up, at least for an afternoon.
I have also tried their Tom Yum Gai (hot and sour soup with chicken) on a previous visit, this soup has mushrooms and lemongrass/lime/ginger and will pep up your spirits if you've had a rough day physically or emotionally.
Get your Thai "on" at Thai Lahna.
