We had dinner at Thai Bay in Largo tonight.  They weren’t very busy for a Friday night.  We started off with some sushi; an East Bay roll, a Mexican roll, and some salmon.

The salmon was fresh and tasty and both of the rolls were good.  The East Bay roll had salmon, cucumber, scallions and avocado on top.  Loren also got a Nam sod and I tried their fancy duck.

The Nam Sod was good, but the duck was a bit on the tough side.  It was hard to eat.  I liked the veggies and sauce with it, but it just wasn’t tender enough.  Total bill with a drink was $53.

  • Mee Krob


    We ate dinner at Thai Nana tonight in Palm Harbor because I was craving some Mee Krob.

    It’s a very simple crispy noodle dish with a tamarind sauce on it.  It’s addictive.  A bit on the sweet side and the crunchy noodles just melt in your mouth.  There’s also a couple of shrimp and some chicken it in, but it’s all about the noodles and sauce.  And speaking of noodles and sauce, I ordered some Pad Thai for my dinner.

    Since I don’t like bean sprouts or peanuts, my Pad Thai is always a bit on the plain side, but tasty.  The pad thai sauce was on the sweet side too, so I was a bit overwhelmed with it & the appetizer.  Loren ordered a steak dish.

    He said it was tender, but desperately needed the sauce that came with it.  I think he would have been happier if it had been a dish where everything was mixed and cooked together so all of the flavors could have melded together more.  Service here is really slow.  We had to wait in the front for a while before someone came to seat us and it seemed like they were understaffed for the number of customers.  Total bill with a drink was $36.

  • Tom Yum Thai


    We went into Dunedin for dinner tonight at Tom Yum Thai.  It was chilly out, so I had to start with the chicken coconut soup.

    This is one of my favorite soups.  It has such a delicious variety of flavors, from coconut milk to lemongrass to lime.  It’s absolutely delicious.  We also got some steamed pork dumplings.

    We ordered some sushi and Loren also ordered the ginger chicken.  We always ask that both items come out together, but they never do.  I was just about finished with my sushi before his entree came out.

    I was disappointed in the sushi tonight.  The Lucky Roll wasn’t very good at all.  The Orange Dragon and spicy salmon were ok, but still not as good as sushi we’ve gotten other places.   Loren said the ginger chicken was ok.  The quality of the food just wasn’t up to expectations tonight.  Total bill with a drink was $60.

  • Our favorite Thai restaurant, Pacific Thai in Oldsmar, is now serving sushi so we had to check it out.  They have a bunch of rolls to choose from and we settled on some of our favorites.

    I have to get a Mexican roll wherever we go and this one had a nice crispy shrimp tucked inside a tight roll.  We also had a rainbow roll, a spicy kamakazee roll for Loren and some salmon.  All of it was fresh and tasty.  I really enjoyed the salmon.

    The lobster roll was a little difficult to photograph.  The glass made for an unusual presentation, but difficult to get at the pieces of lobster inside. The lobster was cooked well and the roll was yummy.  Loren also ordered a Nam Sod.

    Overall, we enjoyed their sushi options.  Total bill with a drink was $65 which is right in the price range of all of the other sushi places we visit.  They also expanded the restaurant to the space next door, so it’s not quite so crowded in there.

  • Royal Thai


    I met my sister and niece in Orlando today and we had lunch at Royal Thai.  We were seated out on the bright indoor patio.   We had the Pad Broccoli, the Pad Khing, and the Red Curry.  All of the dishes were fresh and tasty.

    My sister said the red curry was pretty spicy and had a lot of flavor.  The ginger was prominent in the Pad Khing and I enjoyed the sauce in the Pad Broccoli.   Overall, pretty good Thai food at a reasonable price.  Total bill was $25
