Took a weekend trip to Miami with some friends and one of them had received a recommendation to this adorable Thai restaurant called Khong River House. Just off Lincoln road, the restaurant’s reclaimed wood chairs gave it an old boat kind of vibe. Unfortunately that was countered by the blasting AC that gave the girls at the table goosebumps throughout our meal, but I’ve noticed this as a recurring theme in Miami. I don’t know how they can go through constant extreme changes in temperature every time they transition from outside to inside without getting sick. The second strike was the peculiarly small portion sizes. Particularly peculiar since our waitress initially suggested we share everything family style, which normally implies large portion sizes. No?
We ordered: the drunken rice noodles, the tofu stirfry, the northern style pad thai, and the thai crispy duck. I can’t comment on the duck but everything else was delish. Just small, small, small. Maybe we were just starving? But apparently the hot & sour cocktail was amazing if you’re into a little spice in your drank, and that seemed like a normal portion size. View high resolution

Yesterday I had my first good South Indian cuisine dining experience at Saravanaa Bhavan- a Chennai, India based chain with locations in 11 different countries. I went to their Curry Hill location for a team lunch. Everything was vegetarian. We had pav bhaji, idli, and thali. I could not believe how many different little dishes of curry, raita, achar, soup, yogurt, and halwa the thali came with. Perfect for the indecisive type like me who like to sample, mix and match with lots of options. I still think a thali is WAY too much food for just one person unless you are in some kind of weight gain competition. View high resolution
