Talay Thai tantalizes my taste buds

I had a pretty impromptu dinner tonight. A friend called, asked if I wanted to go for Thai, and when I responded “yea”, said good I’ll be there in 5. Eeekk! I ran around my apt. getting ready and then proceed down to Talay Thai on Barrington St. for one of the best Thai meals I’ve had in a while.

While in NY over Christmas, my sis got me hooked on green curry. I do love meat, but for some reason, this dish lends itself lusciously to tofu- crisp on the outside and soft within. I spooned some sticky rice onto my plate and then proceeded to lavish it with the rich, spicy curry. As the sauce and rice melded together, I inhaled the sweet aroma of basil-the best part of a green curry.

Green Curry w/ Tofu
Green curry paste w/ coconut milk, eggplant, bamboo, red pepper and basil

Garlic Prawn
Deep fried prawn w/ garlic & black pepper

These were delish; a simple marriage of black pepper and garlic
made an incredible flavour sheath for the juicy prawns

Thai Hot and Sour Soup: Tom Yam w/ Prawns
Soup cooked in a herb broth w/
lime, lemongrass, galangal, tomato, mushroom, shallot & chili

Nom, nom, nom. What a great feed- I even have some leftovers. Talay Thai creates great, rich curries, but they also have some fantastic appys. Check out the Duck Curry, Cashew Chicken and their delicious Spring Rolls here.
