Day 347 of 365…
Tonight I received a call from my friend Chris Hill asking if I’d like to grab a bite to eat. He suggested one of his favorite Thai places. It’s a place I’ve heard other great things about and been wanting to “check out” so it was a perfect mix. Dinner with a dear friend and an opportunity to share someplace with a larger audience.
So, he and I met at Thai Lotus in Cascade Park to enjoy dinner. I am happy to report, he and several others are correct about Thai Lotus being an excellent choice for Thai. I was shocked to walk in and see how large the inside is. It’s located in the center of the center and they have a couple different dining areas plus a small banquet room for that private party. It was bright, clean and very welcoming.
Chris suggested we begin with salad rolls and who am I to argue? :) I really enjoy salad rolls as they’re a light appetizer and the peanut sauce with these were exceptionally good. We decided to order two dinner plates and enjoy them family style. Again, this was a great call. We got a Cashew Chicken dish and a Lemongrass Chicken dish that was served with peanut sauce. Both dishes were superb. The chicken was all tender and flavorful and all the veggies were done just right.
