EVERYTHING was super delicious!

I started the evening with one of their signature cocktails.

Cocktail – RASPBERRY BREEZE stoli raspberry vodka. peach liquor. cranberry. prosecco

The server brought bread for the table topped with butter and sea salt. I could have eaten the whole plate full. I had to remember to pace myself!

The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived there for an early dinner. I liked the view at this reserved Table for Two. By the time we left though, every table was full.

Our table ordered appetizers. Here is the ahi tuna garnished with avocado and radish appetizer. The ahi tuna was extremely fresh and the texture was heavenly.

Any time there is a Caprese salad on the menu, I have to order it. This one had heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and a balsamic reduction with a garnish of microgreens and pesto.

My friend ordered the Filet Mignon. She is the reason why we came to a steakhouse. She said it was the best she’s ever tasted.

I had the Fish of the day (can’t remember which type) with vegetables (light teriyaki type glaze). It was so tasty. I ate all the fish and most of my vegetables. The texture was light and flakey.

We ordered this Brussels and Cauliflower side dish to share. I thought the red onions could have been cooked more, but the cauliflower was good.

Another friend ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese topped with ricotta. She was stuffed trying to eat it all.

We ordered Skillet Cornbread for the table. The server said it was a good choice. I think it was okay but I liked the other rolls better.

I barely had room for dessert! I ordered a single portion of the in house made raspberry sorbet. Wonderful ending to a delicious meal!

We also ordered donuts for the table. Nothing beats a hot freshly made donut tossed in sugar.

Foodie Friday: Nahm Thai Cuisine #thairestaurant #alpharettaga #foodie #goodeats

 

Welcome to the latest edition of FOODIE FRIDAY!

It has been ages that I have posted about a restaurant. The main reason is that I have been so busy and it has been hard for me to find the time to upload all my pictures. Recently, I decided that I would post using my cell phone and I think that is going to help considerably.

The other day, I was in Alpharetta, GA for work and my colleagues suggested we go to Nahm Thai Cuisine. Since they have been highly rated on many food sites, I was eager to try them out.

For an appetizer, I ordered the sampler trio which had shrimp tempura, corn fritter, and pork dumplings.

TOW Opinion: I liked all three. They were paired with sauces that were a delicate mix of sweet, spicy, and salty. My favorite would have to be the shrimp. I should have ordered a plate of just that! Perfect tempura can be difficult to find, but Nahm knows how to get the flavors right every time.
***Allergy warning for the dumplings: They were garnished with peanuts. Since it was just sprinkled on top, I removed that layer and ate the bottom ones.

     

For my main course, I ordered Massaman chicken curry. If you have never had Massaman, the paste is first fried with coconut cream, and only then are meat, potatoes, onions, fish sauce or salt, tamarind paste, sugar, coconut milk and peanuts added. And topped with avocado.

Massaman is usually eaten with rice, in a meal together with other dishes.

They added cashews instead of peanuts. I asked for them to leave off the nuts, but they did not.

 

TOW Opinion: I ordered medium heat and it was just right. I did think it was too sweet and I did not have enough rice to balance out the sweetness. The potatoes were not fully done all the way through.  I still enjoyed the food. I took home my leftovers and ate later after cooking some more rice. Even better then next day!
