My friend Davanh suggested that we go to this Asian Restaurant nestled in cute Elmwood Village, kind of across from the Co Op. Davanh is pretty good with restaurant suggestions so I wasn’t worried. As long as they had vegetarian or seafood options, I was good (By the way a post about my mid-key Pescatarian Journey will be up next week).
First thing’s first, I started out with ordering their calamari that came with this pineapple type dipping sauce. BOMB. Omg. So bomb.
My entree I opted to go with the Broccoli Stir Free in oyster sauce with shrimp as my protein. Let me just say that I eat food like a kid and can no longer eat large portions. I didn’t eat that much and actually just finished eating this today for lunch, and we went on Tuesday. Also this came with a bowl of rice for us to share. I came home and made brown rice for my leftovers though. Nonetheless, this deal is good!! I highly recommend it!
Lastly my dessert. Now I NEVER order dessert. Especially if I ordered an appetizer. Because I know how wasteful I can be. But anyone, Davanh suggested rice made in coconut milk. I’m not really sure what it’s called but I ordered it with a mango on top versus custard and CHIIILLLEEEEEEEEE!! CHILE!!!!! GIRL! GET IT!!
Have you ever been to Taste of Siam? What are your thoughts? What did you order?
