We were on the way home tonight and did what many couples do when they realize they don’t have dinner prepared yet and are growing hungrier: take-out. There are at least 3 Thai restaurants within 3 blocks of us and this time, we ordered ahead from Erawan (123 S 23rd St, Phila, PA). I’ve recently been on a Tom Kha (Coconut Soup) kick and thoroughly enjoyed this offering which I had in the veggie variety. I find that the coconut milk provides a silky and creaminess without being heavy (or dairy for that matter). The wife enjoyed the drunken noodles with chicken which at a medium-spice level had more heat than many restaurants’ hot-spice level (note to self on that). I had the thai-basil chicken which had a good flavor, but I could have used more basil and less red pepper/tomato. The ever present jasmine rice was a great sponge for the basil-garlic sauce leftover from my dinner.
