My apartment hunt goes on. *sigh Today’s expedition took me to Hanover, MD, a stone’s throw from Baltimore. For those of you who have never experienced apartment hunting in a city you know nothing about say a quick thank you now, because trust me, it’s not something you want to do. Since I knew there was a chance I’d be depressed or at least disappointed after the day’s apartment viewing, I found a Thai restaurant nearby to enjoy lunch at afterwards. Yes, food makes me happy. I was hoping that if the apartment search went poorly the food would be yummy and the day wouldn’t be a complete waste.
As it turns out, today must’ve been my lucky day because the apartment search went relatively well and the Thai restaurant I found was good! Little Spice Thai (don’t you just love that name?! Too cute!) is located in a small strip filled with other ethnic restaurants – Pakistani/Indian, Mexican, and Italian. The moment I walked into the casual and cute dining room I was greeted by the delicious fragrance of Thai spices. It made me excited for what would surely be a satisfying lunch. Little Spice Thai has an excellent lunch menu offering a variety of Thai specialty dishes all priced under $10. For such a steal you get a generous entrée, appetizer, and dessert. Yum!
One of my favorite restaurants in Memphis is Emerald Thai Restaurant. They also have a superb lunch menu. For under $10 you get your choice of soup and entrée. Since it was just down the street from my job I ate there all the time. Unfortunately Little Spice Thai did not offer soup on their extensive lunch menu. Sad face.
My momentary sadness over the lack of soup quickly departed as I scanned the menu. Seriously, any Thai dish you’ve thought about trying was on the menu, and all the lunch items can be made vegetarian. Score! I decided to depart from my usual Thai choices – pad king, pad kaprow, pad Thai – instead opting for the pad panang. The moment it arrived at the table my eyes and nose were delighted. Colorful and fragrant was the pad panang. My taste buds were equally pleased by the creamy and flavorful sauce. The vegetables, shrimp, and jasmine rice were a wonderful mix of delicousness. This was the perfect ending to a rather promising day of apartment hunting.
