Thai Temple Food on Sundays (Tampa area)

Just thought I'd share a piece i wrote about the nice food available every Sunday at the Tampa/Riverview Thai Buddhist Temple. There some nice photos as well. While the quality of the food varies, for the prices (and the cause), the Thai Temple is a sweet spot.

my faves include the glazed sweet potato, banana, and taro deep fried and served in paper bags. if you can find them, the shrimp fritters, for lack of a better description, are awesome: small whole shrimp (heads, shells and all) clumped in batter and fried till crispy with a nice sauce studded with fresh cucumber. don't forget the little coconut/green onion cakes/custards. The papaya salad is nice and hot, and in general i like to explore the offerings.

what kinds of experiences have local hounds had there? any favorite dishes or vendors?
