There's a restaurant in a village nearby call the Royal Thai. No idea why it's call that because all the food tastes like it came straight from Delhi via Goa on it's way to Jaipur to me, but that's neither here nor there. Apparently, it's supposed to be a Thai restaurant.
Anyway, back to what I'm here to tell/show you.
We go there every so often because they make this dish I love more than some of my relatives. It's DELISH. The last time we went, for some odd reason (blogging), I decided to take my camera (lifeline). Here are a few photos of the experience.
Don't pretend you haven't been wondering what the food I eat at restaurants looks like. I know you were.
Here's what we had for an appetizer. (Incidentally, if given the choice between appetizer or dessert, I'd most likely go with appetizer, as I did on this night. What would you choose? Am I odd?) The thing on the left is Chicken Satay for the Bear and on the right is a corn cake thingamy for me. What? You people know I'm bad with naming stuff.
While we were waiting for this deliciousness to arrive, I glanced to my right and saw this guy.
My food came. To understate the event, they changed the format of the presentation.
To look like a bird.
MY FOOD LOOKED LIKE A BIRD.
"Yes, I'll have number eighteen on the vegetarian menu. Oh, and can you make that look like some sort of animal? That'd be great. Thanks so much."
I loved it! It was one of those things where you think to yourself, "Why didn't I bring my camera?" except I DID. Isn't it cute? It had retained all of it's yumminess and gained some pizzazz.
Just so you know, I ate almost that whole thing. I think I left part of a pineapple wing and maybe a bit of cucumber tail. But I definitely ate the chili pepper beak.
So glad I had my camera with me.
