During our recent trip to Dallas, we squeezed in a quick one day visit to Houston to visit family. It had been years since I had seen my cousins and I had never met their kids. With them being so close in age to Q, I really wanted to get them together and meet. It didn't take long for them to form a bond, and in no time, they were playing with trains and drawing on their ipads.
We went out for dinner later in the evening to their favourite thai restaurants, Tony Thai. We got there just before they were going to close but they welcomed us in for a quick bite.
We started with soup, Tom Yum. The spicy broth with all kinds of seafood was delicious. We also had some Thai wings as a starter which were the most delicious wings I had tasted. The breaded wings had a sweet and spicy sauce that we just couldn't get enough of. They were a huge hit and we had to order another round.
The fried rice was tasty with chunks of chicken and loaded with veggies. This went perfectly with the chicken in red curry, a spicy sauce fragranced with coconut milk. The greens were delicious as well, with lemongrass and garlic - a tasty way to eat your veggies.
We ended the meal off with a delicious creme brulee. Although there for just a day, it was wonderful to spend time with family.
