Thai Smile

It's not quite Christmas dinner for a Jew if it doesn't involve some kind of oriental meal. I was in Palm Springs for the Holiday weekend to soak up some sun and get a quick break from work. After going to the movies we went to my parents' favorite thai spot in the area. It's a smallish restaurant with about 60 seats but nicely decorated. It was the only place with any life in the shopping center at 8pm on December 25th. We had some good food and some ok food. Even my mother said that it's normally a bit tastier but maybe it was the second team in the kitchen or abnormally busy since not many places are open.

Our starters of chicken satay and some kind of deep fried shrimp roll were the best things on the table all night. I loved the peanut sauce with the chicken and the shrimp roll was very tasty.




Our main dishes were a vegetable pad see iew, a vegetable something and an awesome fried scallop dish. Fried scallops sound goofy but whatever they did worked. The sauce was great and the scallops well cooked and then encased in batter.



My noodle dish was exceptionally disappointing. There was no flavor to the sauce and the noodles tasted over cooked. We ended up ordering a pad thai in addition and that was better but a little sweet.

We had a nice meal with some ups and downs. A few dishes were great and some were not but the company was great and that's the most important thing on any holiday night.
