Last Friday, I went to Linda's, the fancier upstairs portion of the very popular Salad King Thai restaurant. I had been there before and enjoyed it enough to go back. I never thought that it was anything special. It sure ain't cheap.
Our meal was incredibly, uncommonly good. We had the fish curry. I don't remember exactly what they called it, but it was under the "chef recommends" section of the menu.
It was phenomenal. It was a bubbling bowl of beautifully intricate brownish curry; full of very interesting flavours. I spotted a star anise, and detected a hint of sweetness that added some very fine balance. The fish itself was turbot, fried to crispy, then finished in the curry sauce. The dish also featured okra, which I have never cared for due to its sliminess.
We also had the Pad Thai, which was good. Soups were also quite good. But the fish curry was worth the trip.
