Nit's Thai Cuisine
I had to eat some more food at Nit's the other day so I could take some photos for Nit. WIth the task at hand, I had to step up to the plate (not reluctantly) and started with an order of the Dried Beef Appetizer ($9) made with specially prepared Thai seasonings then deep-fried. When eating these, they are so tasty with a bit of smokiness and a touch of pika they could well be the perfect chaser with beer. No beer for me that day so I had the Thai Tea, which was quite refreshing on the palate.
Warming up to the task at hand, I also ordered Shrimp Salad ($10), which is supposed to be the Thai version of kelaguen. The menu says diced shrimp, however, I think they forgot their dicer! These were BIG Shrimp, sprinkled with green onions and a spicy marinade. I know that eating them made my ears warm! I did eat 'em all though!
Last but not least I ordered Thai Red Curry with Chicken ($8). This is one of the quintessential dishes of Thailand. It's culinary art in a bowl, with fresh green basil leaves garnishing the top and bamboo shoots, local eggplant, and tender chicken chunks floating in a golden pond of richly curried coconut milk peppered with chili flakes. I am sure it could have been hotter in terms of spice heat, however, it was just fine and I could savor every ingredient without any punishing burns!
Nit does an awesome job and her popularity is increasing. I am looking forward to my next visit!
