eating out

Thai Wi-Rat

Tedster and I went out tonight for dinner in the Valley before going to see Frost/Nixon (excellent, by the way).  It was clearly an evening of all-round fantasticness, because the food was exactly what I was after too.

We had deliciously hot duck larb, crisp and cooling green pawpaw salad, and sticky rice.  It was perfect.  Food for two plus one beer was $33.  The rest of the menu looks good too – lots of things I’ll go back to try, like black pickled egg salad, and other things I may or may not work up the courage for, like steamed boneless chicken feet salad and spicy soup with ox liver and tripe.  Discovering this place has made me intensely happy – I have been searching Brisbane for good Thai ever since we got back.
