Friday, two of my coworkers, Endrina & Edie, (they call me “daughter”, I call them “mama”) took me out for lunch as a super early birthday celebration. Any May babies out there?!
Nit Noi Thai Restaurant & Cafe
1005 Dairy Ashford Rd
Houston, TX 77057
Ordered our array of curry and it came with free salad! Score. Too saucy though but still good. No picture … just picture a salad.
Crispy Spring Rolls [2 per order] | $2.95 each
Endrina ordered two orders of this, It tasted more like coleslaw without the mayonnaise in that little wrapped roll. Not a fan. If I was to go by myself with someone else, I would not recommend this.
Red Curry Hurry [with beef] | $9.95
I got it with Medium spice. This was the only curry out of all the others she asked what level of spiciness I wanted it. And it was the perfect level. I loved this one a lot. It had potatoes, pineapples, beef, basil, and green beans.
The only thing I could do without is the pineapples but it didn’t bother me. Mmm … most recommended.
Panaeng is Curry So Hurry [with chicken] | $9.95
Filled with chicken and green beans. The flavor from this one tasted like Mum’s curry so I automatically liked this a lot. They said it tasted a little bitter … which I don’t agree but all our palettes are different. I would recommend this to people for sure!
Musamun is Curry Too [with chicken and tofu] | $9.95
Filled with carrots, potatoes, tofu, chicken, and potatoes. My least favorite. Not sure why but it was sweeter and had a more peanut taste to it. I would only recommend this if they stopped serving the other two.
The good: As much rice as you’d like. I don’t think they charged us extra for that.
The bad: lack of ingredients in the curry. It was super saucy which is great for rice but if they made the price go up just a little and added more ingredients, it would be well worth it.
Edie bought me a present. Yay pens. I’m excited. I wish I had super important documents to sign … like a real business woman.
Internet is almost here. I am too excited to be able to connect with y’all whenever the heck I want!
Happy Tuesday, y’all!
