Chada Thai & Wine

I've been to many Thai restaurants in town and Chada Thai & Wine stands out to me.  Other than their nice chic atmosphere, they serve dishes that I've never seen before (see menu) other than the popular Thai dishes like Larb or Panang Curry.  Some of the dishes we got were Miang Pou (left middle pic)- a lettuce wrap with crab meat, ginger, roasted coconut, peanut, chili, lime, and onion; Fresh Oysters (top right pic)- topped with roasted chili, lime, garlic, and cilantro; Hor Mok(middle right pic)- steamed curry with seafood, basil, and nappa cabbage.

It was refreshing to eat different Thai foods and the way that each dish were flavored were on point!  Also, this restaurant is also known for their wine selection and if you're on a gluten-free diet, just request for the special menu.

Oregon Trip '14

Earlier this year we went to Oregon for a little getaway from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas.  We were out and about in Beaverton, Portland, and Corvallis.  I, of course had to see which restaurants in these areas were good to eat at :

Aomatsu

In Corvallis we ate sushi at Aomatsu and came in just in time for Happy Hour (8:30-10pm, Mon-Thurs).  Our favorite sushi roll from the Happy Hour menu was the Crunch Monster Roll, which comes with shrimp tempura, avocado, crab, cucumber w/ spicy dressing covered in crunchy dressing (panko):


Since my husband and brother-in-law have big appetites, the Happy Hour items weren't enough so we got the Love Boat from the regular menu.  This entree came with shrimp and vegetable tempura, seaweed salad, Rainbow Roll, Tuna, Salmon, and Yellowtail Nigiri and Sashimi, and an eel roll:



What I liked about Aomatsu other than the sushi was that they other offered Asian foods like Korean BBQ.  There was a separate area for the tables with the grills.
