Try Some Thai

It's no secret I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to trying new foods. I don't like "weird" foods and prefer blander tastes. I like really good food, but at a fancy restaurant I usually order the simplest thing on the menu. While Ant isn't the most adventurous foodie I know, he's always willing to try new things.

Tonight Ant had a taste for Thai food. I'm sure it's no surprise that I've never tried Thai food. I was a little reluctant, but after looking over The Happy Elephant's menu, I decided to try the Garlic Lover with chicken. It was basically just chicken, broccoli and carrots in soy sauce (or something similar), but unfortunately I didn't taste much garlic. My meal also came with some white rice, so I ate it like stir fry (which you guys know I love!).

Ant got an order of Pad Thai and chicken pot stickers. He liked the Pad Thai and loved the pot stickers.

While I don't think I would have ever ordered Thai food on my own, it was pretty good! And definitely not "weird." If I'm ever in the mood for stir fry I would definitely order from them again, a much better alternative to the Stouffer's meal we tried last week.

What foods were you hesitant to try and ended up loving?

  2. I would have to say a couple of egg-related dishes are my reluctant surprises. I was always very skeptical of egg salad and deviled eggs, but the Mrs. makes them both deliciously.
