Across the street from Gardiner's Market, there's a new Thai place where Thai Angel used to be...with Vietnamese, Japanese and Korean offerings, too:
Went for dinner and it was EXCELLENT. I highly recommend! Very friendly service, too.
Started with fried dumplings--marinated chicken wrapped in wontons. Crispy outside and unlike other dumplings we've ever eaten. Almost shaped like little pouches. DEEEEELICIOUS!
For our entrees: red curry with pork and basil with chicken. Generous portions, loads of fresh veggies, flavorful and plentiful sauces.
I couldn't resist fried bananas for dessert. They were plated as little individual banana dumplings (rather than the entire tempura banana I've had elsewhere), drizzled with a little MAPLE SYRUP (YES!), then served with a scoop of ice cream topped with whipped cream. I have never had maple syrup on fried bananas before...what a great idea and flavor combination!
I can't wait to go back for lunch--their lunch combos look like quite the bargain: choice of entree, vegetable soup, Thai roll, crab rangoon, salad and rice for $9.95. I am so there next week (except Monday, that's the one day they're closed)! And I'll be back for dinner, too.
