We had 14 Chowhounds last night at Thai Aroma, and from the emails so far everyone had a really good time! The Spicy Mango juice was delicious, especially paired with CurlyGirl's Blood Orange vodka! I predict a run on that vodka at the state store today... LOL We were the first ones to arrive in the restaurant and the last ones to leave!
Personally, I ate the ravioli soup, which was a clear broth with little chicken and shrimp dumplings and lots of veggies in it. It was really tasty, the dumplings had a nice texture and the skins were very delicate. I had the Jungle King as an entree, and tried the Massaman curry. I liked the curry better, but the Jungle King was very tasty. We ordered a number of appetizers... coconut shrimp, chicken satay, fish cakes, crispy tofu, summer rolls. Of those the coconut shrimp were my favorite.
Mookleknuck ordered salads to share... the spicy beef salad was really good, so was the green papaya salad - altho the heat in that one was too much for me! yikes! I think I chewed a slice of one of those thai dragon chilis or something. LOL.
At the end of the meal we passed around shots of La Belle Creole chocolate rum that Mr. Juju and I brought back from St. Lucia last week. (oh, and he found out I call him Mr. Juju on Chow... that was FUNNY.) Anyway, I thought it was a good way to finish up a wonderful meal. I hope that we'll be able to do this again sometime soon!
