Our modus operandi whenever my wife and I hit the Thai town on Hollywood Boulevard is to treat ourselves to some authentic home-cooked style Thai dishes at our favorite restaurant. We know a little cozy place that serves no fancy-schmancy stuff, but just good, delicious (and spicy!) Thai dishes. Then we would visit a Thai snack specialty store just right across the parking lot. It is always a better idea to come to this snack store with a full stomach, otherwise you will just get every single delicious item they carry!
So, we got some stuff that we thought would go perfectly well with a cup of tea at home. When I realized how photogenic these snacks are, I decided to snap a few pictures and blog them.
They are perfectly great with a cup of light green tea or jasmine.
