365: Day 75 – Siamese Garden (On my list to try)

I came across this restaurant while exploring a cute little area of Los Angeles that I will post about tomorrow. The restaurant entrance has a very tropical feel to it and seems like it would be a beautiful place for a date around the sunset hour, and a great place to catch up with friends or family during the day.

The three most popular dishes seem to be Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, and Green Curry. I am particularly interested in the green curry as it seems to be more popular than my favorite, yellow curry. For some reason, I think most people would be inclined to go for a yellow food rather than a green one…or perhaps it’s just me who thinks this of other people.

Looking through their menu, I also see a couple of other dishes that are not as popular, but seem quite interesting: Spicy Mint Noodle, and Panang Curry. The other thing I want to try is the Mango Sticky Rice: my favorite Thai dessert.

The restaurant has over 1,100 reviews on yelp and an average rating of 4 stars. On Google is has 272 reviews and 4.3 stars. Not what I would call excellent reviews, but very good nonetheless. It’s a $$ restaurant so it’s quite affordable. Not sure if I’ll make the drive down there for takeout during the pandemic, but definitely somewhere I’d like to come back to once it is safe to dine in a restaurant.

*I am experimenting trying to write posts about places I would like to try and things I’d like to do, so bear with me as I fine tune this to be more useful and entertaining. 🙂
