At long last Thai

henare got stuck at Sea-Tac airport for six plus hours today; conveniently, I dropped my parents off for their flight back to London at about four this afternoon. This meant that I got to drag henry out to a Thai restaurant I'd been hoping to try - it's hard by the airport, which is convenient if you need to go to the airport, but far from convenient if you live in Salmonberg.

Bai Tong restaurant was - if you believe what you read on the Internet - originally founded by Thai Airways International so that their crews could eat good food whenver they visited Seattle. Now, call me skeptical, but heck, Thai don't even fly to Seattle these days, so... I dunno. What I do know is that I've just had one of the best Thai meals I've had in the US, and definitely the best Thai food I've had in the Pacific Northwest. The chicken coconut milk soup came crammed with galingale and lemongrass [oh yeah, and chicken and straw mushrooms too]; it was not greasy, subtle, and harmonious. Yum. As a main, I had the penang beef, which was very scrummy. Next time, I aim to try the hotter curries and see if I can attain the Holy Grail of a red beef curry that makes me cry.

Here's hoping henry gets back to The City today - it sucks when your travel plans are screwed with extensively as his has been. :(
