After a long day of being stuck at the car dealership to buy a car (more on that later), we were STARVING! After mulling over what we should get, we eventually decided to go to Wat Dong Moon Lek for some good eats.
The Crispy Green Beans has got to be our favorite thing on the menu. If you check out WDML, it would be a SIN not to order a plate of this. It's a heaping plate of crispy green beans covered in a sweet and spicy and savory sauce that is oh-so-good. Being as hungry as we were, Carlos and I finished this plate in a hurry. (We shoulda gotten another order!)
I decided to order the Seafood Tam Yam Noodles this evening and it very thoroughly hit the spot! It's a savory bowl of hot and sour soup with delectable pieces of fish, squid, shrimp, and mussels. I had some of the best poached white fish in the bowl - I couldn't stop talking about it. The flat rice noodles were a slurpy goodness. I happened to have asked for Medium heat and I thought it was a tad too spicy (and I am no spice-wimp. I basically don't eat anything without Sriracha in it). If I come back to and order this, I would probably ask for Mild :)
This bowl of Tom Kha Udon is perfection. Carlos ordered it with Chicken, but I had a taste of the broth. Next time, this is going to be my order, no doubt. The creaminess of the coconut milk tames the spiciness a bit so the level of heat is somewhat more balanced.
The udon is a great pair to the broth and it makes it that much more yummy. Please do yourself a favor and rush to WDML to taste this!
After our meal, we had to order our favorite drink to-go. Their pineapple-basil slushy is a revelation. It's one of those flavor combination that just works. And when you have a sip, it will literally blow your mind. (I'm thinking this is also very awesome with some rum, tequila, or whiskey, but I digress!)
This was a great great meal. And for less than $50, it is absolutely splurge-worthy!
...we just had to get some of their Shrimp Jungle Fried Rice to go!
We didn't have room for it during our meal, but we will later on this evening! (So worth the order!)
