I have just returned from my first ever trip to Las Vegas, where I enjoyed a nice meal at the Lotus Of Siam restaurant. I ordered the Nam Kao Tod as an appetizer and the Pla Dook Yang as my entree.
I was very pleased with both selections, except for the fact that I was looking for a little more heat. As Dave Feldman pointed out, my selections were not among the more incendiary of their offerings.
A return trip to Las Vegas and the Lotus Of Siam is being planned for next summer. This time, I would like to go in with a better game plan.
For one thing, I will probably be dining solo. I doubt that anybody in the group I will be traveling with will want to experiment with an unfamiliar Thai cuisine. Most of them prefer standard American fare such as steak and ribs. I tried in vain to get somebody in my group to come with me this year, but was unable to do so.
So, here's what I want to do.
I want to go in and order one of the following:
I would like each selection to not only complement each other nicely, but also provide some of the heat I am looking for. Any selection from either the main menu or the Northern or Issan menu would be fine.
One more thing. I am not terribly fond of "sweet" dishes. I saw one post in which the diner mentioned that one particular dish was too sweet for his taste. So, I want to eliminate all such dishes altogether.
Could any of you offer a recommendation from each category that you think satisfies the above? If so, I
would be deeply appreciative.
Any and all ideas and suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
