Tara Thai

Aah, Tara Thai. I used to come here a lot back in my college days. It’s relatively affordable, and it’s not sports bar food, which was usually the other option back then. I poked around their Yelp page today, and was amused by how varied the reviews are, ranging from “I love it!!” to “Worst Thai food evar omg!!” (paraphrasing). I can’t vouch for its authenticity, having never been to Thailand myself, but it’s fairly decent. I don’t think I’d go out of my way to dine here, but it’s a nice option if you’re in the area. Some people might find the underwater themed decor a little cheesy, but I don’t mind it so much.

My brother and I went to their Rockville restaurant last week when he was visiting for the weekend. I got the pad thai, pictured above. I think it was okay, if a little on the bland side.

The rest:

Thai iced tea…sweet! Almost too sweet.

A very light Thai beer. I liked it, but I don’t drink very strong beers.. My brother took this picture.

These curry puffs were from the daily special menu, and were stuffed with chicken and mashed potatoes. I really liked this! The crust was nice and flaky. They were like mini empanadas. ♥

Green curry with chicken. Not bad. I liked the hint of coconut milk, and it had enough heat (at least, for me). It’s not my favorite of the curries, though.
