Day out on Mississippi ave in PDX—my half and I decided to go eat at Mee Sen Thai Eatery. With the plethora of choices of great places to eat in PDX this is on our top list. There aren’t many great/good thai eatery compatible to our palettes. There is one more in town, but I will save that for another day! Mee Sen was discovered on a day walking down Mississippi ave with a hungry tummy. Restaurant is definitely authentic and the use of the old metal cups is an addition to the authenticity of Thai culture. I’m in love with authenticity—especially when restaurants uses things from the mother land—I heart it! It so happen we got there and there was 30 mins of happy hour left. With our budget it allowed us to taste two more dishes without having to pay a full price for entree. The two dishes we tried were:
1) Pad Thai- Amazingly it had a crisp to it and it was from the toasting the wok did to the noodles. My first time experiencing pad thai like it was just finish cooking on the side of the street!
2) Sai Oua (Northern Thai sausages)- The hint of lemongrass mixed in with the pork was ohhh soo YUM! One of my favorite Asian herbs.
One experience I had with trying to cook Rad Nar—Oh myyy it didn’t turn out so well due to my novice experience with starch. I believe its been almost 2.5 years since that experience and I never ordered Rad Nar again. Finally my half couldn’t bear it anymore he was brave enough to order it again. Ohhh I have to say he chose the right time and place to order it. My fear of this dish disappeared as I tasted the great cooking of this Rad Nar. The consistency of the gravy was just ohh soo right! Rad Nar is back in my life.
The entree I ordered was the Suki Haeng- Glass noodles with squid, shrimp, and greens. The sauce added more flavor which in my dishes of food I need/love FLAVOR!
