Yesterday it was my colleague Nikki’s birthday. We live in the same suburb and were leaving the office at the same silly hour last night and shared a taxi home. We decided to stop somewhere in our ‘hood for dinner to celebrate the special day. Nikki, having lived in Ari for a while and being a very hip gal knows the best of everything and was keen to show me a konjee place she likes. I let her (begged her to) order everything because she knows the place and by virtue of being Thai could even read the menu.
Take a closer look at the tasty little morsels to my left (your right). On the menu they were called crispy shells which cleverly excludes the name of what you actually eat, which is some kind of snail or other creature that resides in a shell. They were pretty tasty. Also on the menu: tom yum, grilled fish and mixed vegetables. Excellent!
