About one week ago my Dad, Brother, Grand parents and I went to a Thai restaurant called Mai Thaiku on Phinney Ridge. I loved evrything about it. The space was an open flow (but small) house that (for every one who lives in Seattle) is located right across from the famous Red Mill. The food was great and it is now my favorite Thai restaurant.
To start we had chicken shish kabobs (satay) in a sweet and tangy sauce and they were so good. I probably could have had just that for dinner. Then we had something I have never seen before. It was some type of leaf and then there where different ingredients like ginger, coconut, lime , peppers, onion, peanuts, and a sweet sauce. You would then add the toppings on to the leaf and roll it together and eat it! They were pretty good especially with the sauce and coconut.
After that we ordered our main dishes. I got Khao Soi, it is a coconut curry with chicken and fresh and crispy fried egg noodles and it was amazing! Spicy but amazing. I am sorry to say I forgot to take a pic of it! oops!
My little brother who isn’t as adventurous as I am (he is only seven) got fried rice with chicken and that was good too. He liked it and and was full pretty quickly so my family helped him with it. It was good good and they give you a lot.
For Desert I got coconut icecream and it tasted exactly like coconut. It was just the right amout of sweet for me and it served well as a pallet clenser after such a big meal. My dad got black sesame ice cream and it was vary good and such an unusual flavor. I love it when restaurants have new and different flavors it is just so much fun to try them!
The service was good and I got to personally talk to the owners and I just want to say thank you and good luck with your new restaurant!
I will have an new post about me TRYING to make lemon cupcakes with raspberry filling.
