Thai soup? Me?
I have never been a huge fan of Thai food until recently.
In my opinion, most of it is too overwhelming in one area or another, either too much heat (and you know I love heat), or the flavor contrasts are disappointing. And that just pisses me off when a dish looks so good. If a dish that’s pretty should taste good damnit. Of course, maybe I’ve been going to the wrong restaurants.
I don’t give up on food; even if I’m not crazy about something I make it at home. There are lots of things I love when I make them myself, but wouldn’t order out. Chinese is another one (but I do love P.F. Chang’s).
I love the coconut milk in this; it balances everything out.

It’s kinda spicy, hearty, a hint of coconut, and a little buttery.
