A Night with Thai Cuisine

Last night I went out for dinner. But, instead of downtown Downey, I went to the Castaway restaurant in Burbank where I was invited to attend an event sponsored by the Thai Trade Center of LA. The evening was centered around promoting Thai food products and had numerous restaurants who provided food from the four distinct regions of Thailand.

In addition, the Royal Thai government presented awards to a number of western region Thai restaurants who had earned the Thai government's seal of approval—the 2013 "Thai Select" certification awards (for the authenticity of the food they served and the ambiance of their restaurants).

The food was very yummy. I tried Singha beer mixed with coconut soda...surprisingly good. I had a Thai lollipop (lamb), a crab nugget (to die for), wild pork with chili, miang khum, and much more. I ate more than I should have and loved every minute of it...
