We went to our favorite Thai restaurant, Bangkok Garden. For openers, we shared an order of fresh spring rolls, DH had a cucumber martini and I had a ginseng martini. Mmm, that was delicious! Then I had shrimp pad Thai and DH had stir-fried shrimp with pea pods. The sauce tasted like it had oyster sauce in it - very savory.

We had a very nice dinner, except for the guy at a table nearby who seemed to think he knew more about making Thai food than the four staff members he called over to speak to about it. He seemed to think he was a judge on Top Chef, with all his detailed comments about the noodles picking up the sauce, which could have been a tad sweeter to balance the lime and on and on. As I left, I made a point to interrupt and tell the staff member he was speaking to then that DH and I have been enjoying their food and the beautiful restaurant for many years and thanked her for a wonderful evening.
