Thai Tida, Lambertville, NJ

We have a severe lack of good Thai food in our area, so I was happy to go try Thai Tida in Lambertville. We only got to try a couple of dishes, but they were intriguing enough to warrant a repeat visit to try some more standbys.

We started off with a bunch of appetizers - chicken satay, spring rolls, and these stuffed chicken wings in which the wings were deboned, the meat removed, minced, and mixed with spices, then restuffed into the wing under the skin. You gotta love how the Asians "play" with meat.

I ordered my entree from the section of the menu subtitled, "Family favorites, requests from friends: dishes we can recommend for your kind consideration" -- Hoi Ob Song Kruang, steamed mussels with Thai herbs, with curry on the side for dipping. The broth was delicious and full of Thai basil flavor. Redneckhunter got a perennial favorite - drunken noodles (Pad Kee Miow Gai). This of course was not nearly as good as Sripraphai, but redneckhunter still enjoyed it. I want to go back again and try some other favorites -- larb, green papaya salad.

Since it was our friend's birthday, the restaurant brought out coconut pudding and sweet sticky rice with coconut milk for her.
