We are so excited to have a new event series with Christine Liu, Citysearch's National Community Manager and a Union Square resident. Together we’ve devised a recurring celebration on our patio of one Thai ingredient.
Thai Me Down (Christine has a gift for naming events) happens from 6:30 to 8:30. Our July evening featured Lemongrass.
To start, we featured a little known Thai tradition. Yom Pla Kra Pong (or as we called it, phantom chicken) is a combination of condiments often used to make a chicken dish. The concept is, if you can’t afford to buy the chicken, by shooting some sake and eating a combination of small bits of the condiments (and shooting more sake) you can imagine you are eating the chicken. And if you eat enough phantom chicken (thanks to the sake), you may just forget your troubles anyway. Try it!
The format for Thai Me Down includes a tasting of the house offerings in beer, wine & sake (This month we tried, among other things, champaign with lemongrass syrup. Though some can't resist our Thai Sangria, especially on the patio.)
Throughout the event, we experiment with the theme ingredient, this time offering lemongrass with both Golden Curry and Sardine Salad. Yum!
