Zach and I wanted a quick and relatively cheap meal, so took me to Jamjuree for dinner. I had never been before, but I had walked by the place and thought it looked too fancy to be a good thai place. The restaurant has nice, dim lighting, rich colors and fabrics on the walls and a comfortable table arrangement (i.e. the tables aren’t crammed next to one another).
I ordered the swimming rama, with a one-star rating—I was feeling wimpy. The chicken was perfectly cooked and tender, resting on really fresh spinach and topped with a perfect peanut sauce. Zach thought it would be even better with more spice, but I liked it just fine.
Zach ordered a tamarind seafood dish with three stars. It was packed with prawns, scallops and octopus. It was great, but I couldn’t eat much of it because it was so spicy. We also got an order of the plain brown rice, which looked more red than brown, but it had a great nutty flavor.
I’m excited to have a nearby thai place to frequent!
