Yim Yam has a wonderful mix of meals from Thailand and Laos heritage. I had never eaten there before, but I have bought takeaway three times – just the red duck curry which is delicious.
Last night was the coldest night I've experienced for a while. Icy! A great night for spicy Asian food.
Fish cakes with sweet chili and lemongrass sauce
Steamed chicken wrapped in pandan leaves – the flavour in the chicken was amazing – so sweet.
I had seafood curry cooked in a young coconut. It was packed full of real seafood, none of this frozen plastic seafood extender stuff.
And the novelty of eating from a coconut was fun!
Mum had a very spicy prawn stirfry.
She eats chili in everything and said that these chilis were exceptionally hot.
I also had a thai custard dish. I don't know what it tasted like...bread and butter pudding would be the closest.
The service was great and the prices were cheap.
Even the house wine was nice!
I am wearing a dress thrifted from the lovely Mez. I have about four layers of clothing on due to the cold.
There is a huge artwork on the wall which I love. It is so vibrant. Here is some of it.
I showed Mum the wonders of the Hipstamatic camera iPhone app.
We had lots of laughs. It was a nice, but freezing night!
