Here in Forest Hill we don’t have a lot of options for eating out, but we do have one pretty good Thai restaurant, called Thai Orchard. They’re no Som Saa, but they’re more than adequate sustenance for a lazy weekend night in. We ordered loads of food and ate it while watching Calvary on Netflix. Excellent film.
One of my favorite Thai standards is laab moo, a pungent salad of minced pork, fish sauce, toasted rice, lime, chillies, onions, and various herbs, and Thai Orchard do a good one. It’s properly stinky with fish sauce and they don’t hold back on the spice. Its hot-and-sour flavor was a perfect way to gussy up my corn for the day. Most satisfactory.
