A short while after our wedding, we decided we cannot rest on our laurels, and continued with our dedicated work – writing this blog.
Three years ago we took our first trip abroad together and had five dreamy weeks in Thailand. We fell in love with the spicy food and ate it all day long. Once we came back we have searched for something that will remind us the wonderful holiday – so we found the Thai house.
Unfortunately, it was too good to be true. Our first visit in Thai house left us with bad taste in our mouth (literally). It took us about two more years until we had the guts to come back, and we weren’t sorry at all.
Thai house is located at the top 10 restaurants in Tel Aviv according to Trip Advisor. Not surprisingly as it is located right is in the middle of the tourist area – Bugrashov and Ben Yehuda.
For starters we had two salads – Papaya Salad and Yam-Wun-Sen Goung (Shrimp Salad with Glass Noodles). Both of them were refreshing and included memories from the far east. In Thai house every dish is marked with a spicy scale; the shrimps salad was rated, accurately, as mildly spiced.
We shared the main course – Naam Tuk Neua (or as described at the menu “As Asian as it gets”) – Sliced beef roasted in traditional ”I-San” seasoning with mint leaves, purple onion, coriander, dry hot peppers & lime juice. Turns out that sharing the course was a smart move as it was very big and very spicy, which made it a little hard for us to eat. Nevertheless, the course that was served at the room temperature, was a wonderful choice. We took the bartender’s advice and replaced the fried rice with sticky rise – which made it easier for us to digest the spiciness of the beef.
We decided to skip dessert and go home and dream a little bit more about Thailand.
