Finally, we made it to fabulous, fresh Vieng Thai

Get the fish cake appetizer. Get the shredded green papaya salad. Most importantly, order what the food critics tell you to order. Here it would be things with keffir lime leaves, and things Alison Cook tells you to get. If I don’t do my homework, I can leave a great place having ordered all the boring things, and not learn what the depths of the kitchen are. But also go with luck. The best thing we got was the fish cakes. They weren’t very fishy, but they just exploded with that delicious lime flavor. Really, everything was great!

Vieng Thai isn’t that far away. It is north from I10 on Silber, going past Ikea. Then turn right on Longpoint, which is the second major light. It’s almost immediately there in the shopping center. We were lucky to have our family with us, and so could try lots of things. We’ll be back!

By the way, you bring your own beer or wine if you want it. We stuck with water.

    I’m going to go- green papaya salad is good and the satay looks like the stuff I got in Singapore

    Weird that you and Dave are gone. Sad for me, really
