thai songkran fest 2006 escondido (report).

alex | May 1, 2006 12:13 AM

out of this world...
so this sunday i had to decide between chula vista cinco de mayo and escondido wat thai;s buddist fest.

since there will be another 5 may fest next weekend in old town sd...thai won out.

the homestyle food prepared by these fantastic thai women was the best i have ever had...no joke

the piece de la resistance had to have been the pork leg rice (i believe it is called Koa Ka Mu) this braised pork stew was heaven on a plate (especially for a famished person..no breakfast or dinner night before) the sauce beautifully seeped into the fragrant jasmine rice...a perfect pair. complemented by what i belive to be mustard greens.

if anyone knows more about this dish please respond..i'm desperate.

the chicken and pork skewers were good, the chicken especially juicy.

beef and chicken panag curry were great as well as the pad thai...perfectly seasoned, enjoying the crunch of the bean sprouts and tender egg. '

also saw fried bannanas taro and sw potato in what looked like black sesame batter.

i had a shrimp or fish cake fry with a nice cucumber salad alongside.

there was also what looked like a steamed fish cake boat???

music was kicken too.
