Daisy Mint Thai Restaurant, Pasadena, CA
Daisy Mint in Pasadena has some interesting decor!

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 Salad
grilled 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 & Ginger
Fresh ginger sauteed with onions, mushrooms and scallions (with Tofu, $8.95)

Daisy Mint Thai Restaurant, Pasadena, CA
Daisy Noodles
rice 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!

Oh yeah, that's a 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!

I'm a big fan of Daisy Mint too! In fact, I ate there twice last week ;-) The decor is so dang cute! I will try the salad next time I swing in for a bite.

This Thai place looks really good. I'm super picky about my Thai food. There are 3 in Santa Cruz and they all suck. If you're ever in Hawaii go toe Haleiwa Eats. SO Good.

That pumpkin custard dessert looks awesome. I'm a huge fan of pumpkin.

I'm really loving those two pumpkin dishes! What a unique way to serve the custard . . . now I've got ideas to try. :)

Man alive. I am now officially feeling sorry for myself. Where I live, I have yet to find a SINGLE really good ASIAN restaurant, let alone a Thai one. In the South of France you tendto find lots of delicious...French food. This post has me jonesing at a fairly critical level!

What I wouldn't do for that pork salad.
