Welcome to Tiny Thai!

The hint for "T" was in yesterday's Sidewalk post. Yesterday we visited my favorite Thai restaurant on the West side and today we're stopping at Tiny Thai, a restaurant on the East Side that I like a lot. I'm a fan of Thai food and Tiny Thai has food that's tasty, as well as very friendly and quick service. 

Though I like spicy food a lot, I have learned -- via a memorable experience in Thailand -- that it's easy to overdo it and spend the entire meal drinking gallons of water. I tend to order foods that don't have the little pepper next to them on the menu or "spicy" in bold type. I've had the good fortune to travel to Thailand three times and have become a great fan of Thai food. 

 One of my favorites, Pad Thai, is listed at the top of the menu. 

Pad Thai is made with rice noodles and tofu. Tiny Thai's Pad Thai is delicious.  

In the interest of not falling totally behind in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge I am adding to this post my pick for a somewhat Unconventional "U," filming for the television show, Unforgettable. The filming took place just a few blocks from my building and I couldn't pass up this perfect "U."

There's no parking on film days. 

We're entering the home stretch of the Blogging Challenge. It's been a lot of fun and I hope you've enjoyed travelling -- and eating -- around New York City. There are still some fun places to visit and some delicious treats ahead. 

We're blessed with another sunny day today. I'm running around doing errands before my college class mini-reunion this weekend. I'm very excited to see classmates I haven't seen since graduation. And yes, there will be pictures. One of our activities includes a visit to an exhibit of costumes from "Downton Abbey."

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!

When eating spicy or hot food, drink milk. It binds the molecule that causes the burn. That is why they serve sour cream with Mexican food.


LOVE Thai food too. Restaurant looks like a real gem. How exciting about the movie being filmed nearby.

Our only Thai restaurant closed recently! *sob*
Guess it's back to making it myself.

Our older daughter ordered that at a local restaurant. She and my husband shared it. They both decided they liked it but were not huge fans of it. When you talk about the East Side and West Side, what size area is that and what is the line that divides the two? If you wanted to blog about that sometime, it might interest some people other than me - - - unless you have covered that at one time already. Thanks.

Have you thought of visiting the castle where they film Downtown Abbey in England? I think its in Oxford and tickets sell out far in advance since it is only open to the public a few days a month when they're taping. It may be a destination for you to consider in the future?

Buttercup, I have never had that kind of food. I love I would probably eat those. Do you ever go case out where they are doing a movie?? I would be so darn curious.:):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

I love Thai food also, but in the past few years I order according to the least amount of peppers next to the description on the menu. My stomach is not what it used to be.

How fortunate you were to have visited Thailand, Carol!
I can't recall the last time I enjoyed Thai cuisine, but I do love the hot and spicy.

Wishing you the BEST time at your mini-reunion this weekend!

You are blessed with a wide range of good places to eat. It's wonderful that you are so well traveled too.

Mmmmm Thai food is yummy. We have a couple of restaurants here in town but hubby doesn't care much for Thai food so we don't go often. I like it spicy but not super hot. Once I ate at a place in Seattle that served degrees of hotness by the number of "stars" next to the dish description. My then husband at the time wanted to try 4 stars until the waitress asked if we'd ever eaten Thai food before. We hadn't and she recommended not going over 2 stars the first time. Let me tell you my mouth burned for an hour after we had finished eating. I was so thankful we didn't go with 4 stars or I might have had permanent throat damage.
