Restaurant Week continues (next week is all San Francisco food from my recent trip!)...
We had a work thang at Pasadena City College so after a day of talking and talking, my co-workers and I went to Daisy Mint. I've been here at least four times, and seriously love this Thai restaurant. Knowing that we were going to Daisy Mint after the work event made the day go quickly! :)
Waterfall Pork Saladgrilled marinated pork with shallots, scallions, rice powder and greens with spicy lime dressing ($10.95)
OMG. This is the best. The Best. I could eat this spicy salad, um, every. day. Just go. Just go order it! And you'll see what I mean.
Pumpkin [Kabocha]with egg and basil in garlic sauce (with Chicken, $8.95)
I love kabocha (Japanese squash pumpkin). It is a sweet, dense squash. This preparation is delicious...the meat isn't even necessary.
Mushroom & GingerFresh ginger sauteed with onions, mushrooms and scallions (with Tofu, $8.95)
Daisy Noodlesrice noodles with red curry, egg, crispy onions, bean sprouts and crushed peanuts (no meat, $8.95)
This was great because we wanted a curry and a noodle dish but there were only four of us...and this dish combined the two flavors!
Pumpkin Custard DessertKabocha with a custard. Soooo good and interesting! $4.50
kabocha or pumpkin! And since it was a vegetable to begin with...we put it in the veggie category. Hee hee.
If you are in Pasadena, stop by Daisy Mint for some yummy Thai food!
