A friend at work recommended Thai Nana in Palm Harbor, so off we went to try yet another Thai place. When we first sat down, the waiter handed us some to-go menus to look at until the regular menus were available. It just seemed odd to me that a restaurant wouldn’t have enough menus for all of the tables.
I started out with some Tom Kha Gai soup.
I love the flavors in this chicken coconut milk soup. The aroma is so welcoming. Lemongrass and lime bring such a freshness to the dish.
We looked at the appetizers and decided to get the Thai Combo platter which had spring rolls, fried wonton, curry puff, winter shrimp, and mee krob plus several dipping sauces.
Everything on the plate was pretty good. We both really enjoyed the Mee Krob. It’s addictive. The crispy Thai noodles had an almost buttery carmelized flavor. It’s hard to describe. It made me think of caramel popcorn. Everytime I thought I was done eating, I kept finding my fork back in the noodles. The Curry Puff and Winter Shrimp were also very interesting. They both had a unique set of flavors and textures.
For our entrees, Loren ordered the chicken with ginger, onions, mushrooms, bell pepper and snow peas. What I like to call, “the usual”.
He enjoyed it. It had good flavors. I ordered the shrimp Pad Thai minus the peanuts and bean sprouts.
This was a really good Pad Thai dish. I’ll never understand why shrimp is ever served with the tails on though. It was way more than I could eat, especially after the soup and appetizers, so I had some leftovers.
Total bill was $37. This is another one of those restaurants where multiple people were taking care of all the tables. In some respects it was good, in that our drinks never went unfilled, but it felt like there were a lot more interruptions throughout the meal.
