Laura and I went back to Nahm Thai Cuisine the other day because we were craving their coconut soup. As you might remember in my last review, their coconut soup is the best I have had in town. During this visit I decided to branch out past my favorite green curry dish and try something new.
For appetizers we had the coconut soup along with a trio sampler appetizer. The trio consisted of calamari, pork spare ribs, and fried wontons with crab and shrimp (I think that’s what they were). The calamari was really good, and very meaty. Many places serve calamari that could be confused with fried chips, no squid! Nahm had some beefy pieces. There was a delicious sweet sauce on the calamari, I just wish there was more of it. The short ribs were nice, but nothing too memorable. The fired wonton things were really good! There wasnt much as far as stuffing goes. It was more of a soft fried chip. But that combined with the sweet and spicy sauce was a dynamite combination!
For entrees Laura got the pad thai (her staple dish at Thai restaurants). She liked the dish a lot but will tell you her favorite pad thai in the area is at Lime Juice Bistro. This time I got the beef short ribs in massaman curry. Massaman curry is a thicker creamier red colored curry that has a sweeter flavor. Often it is served with potatoes, nuts such as cashews, and avocado. My first bite of the short ribs in the sauce was like an epiphany of flavor! It was so good! The short ribs were incredibly tender (as they should be) and seemed to just melt with the curry and rice. I will be getting this dish again. Might be a new favorite.
So to let everybody know, Nahm is still kicking ass and whipping out some great food!
