There is a tiny thai food place down the street from my apartment called Tawan's. I mostly order take out from them, far more often than I should when Tyler is on tour. It has come to the point where when I call to place an order, they know who I am (caller ID) and know what I want: Pad See Ew. Every time. Pad See Ew.
There's something about Thai food that hooks you. It's delicious, first and foremost, but it's also surprising. The complementary contrasts of spice cooled by coconut milk, the soft noodles with crunchy vegetables, or the fluffy rice with sticky sauce. Today we're making Thai curry with coconut rice. I find this dish very comforting, especially on winter nights.
