It was a scorching hot afternoon when we stepped out of the church one Sunday. Then came the always inevitable question, "what do you feel like eating today?" asked the husband. I didn't know what I wanted to have so I let him decide.

Then the husband said we'll go for the Thai soft shelled crab. He kept his promise and I had the most flavorful Poo Phat Pong Kari in my entire life. Okay, okay. It was just my first time. :P But it was really unforgettable! The crab was cooked to perfection, just enough tenderness and crisp. It was then complemented with a spicy and rich curry that a cup of rice is not enough!

The husband had the Tom Yum Soup. If you know him personally, you would know that this isn't going to be enough to fill his tummy. But I guess he knows better, because I cannot finish the soft shell crab by myself and he ends up eating half of it. It always happens!

At last but not the least was the dessert - Coconut Paradise. The name didn't really stand out in the menu. But I wanted to try it just because of the coconut ice cream. When the server came with it, I was really curious because of the presentation. I actually don't know how to eat it but we just basically ate a spoonful of each and it was a burst of flavor in the mouth. The luscious coconut ice cream, the sweetness of the the sugar palm and papaya cubes with the sticky glutinous balls showered with the salty peanuts. Just glorious!

Two things were stuck in my mind. The soft shell crab and the coconut ice cream. I want to make Thai dessert at home! Now, I have to go and look for coconut ice cream.
