Yim Yam

Mum was down to stay this weekend and we ate dinner at Yim Yam.

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.

We shared:

Fish cakes with sweet chili and lemongrass sauce

Steamed chicken wrapped in pandan leaves – the flavour in the chicken was amazing – so sweet.

Roti bread

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!

  4. Carly,
    Love the dress.

    Your mum is gorgeous!

    There is nothing like a hot meal out when it's freezing. It really lifts the mood and helps you forget the chill.
