I was excited to include a post on this dinner from a few nights ago. It was, hands down, the best eating out experience that we've ever had with both boys. We were a little bit hesitant how things would go with finding something on the menu for the boys at a Thai restaurant, but it was great! I don't mean to make it sound like they sat there with their arms folded, but Lincoln's fussing was pretty minimal and Noah really was close to perfect...Mark and I just kept looking at each other in disbelief with raised eyebrows. Anyway, my friend Jenny passed on a coupon from restaurant.com where we were able to buy a $25.00 gift certificate to this Thai place for just $1.00! So we decided to go out (cheaply!) and try this place (Thai Garden). We used to do Thai a lot while living in Iowa, and with the link that smells have to memories it was kind of fun to take a little trip down memory lane that way.
The food was great (I loved the yellow curry) and the servers were friendly. Noah was even excited about ordering some "noodle soup with chicken" and to eat it with chopsticks!
Lincoln loved the egg rolls.
And, very most of all, Lincoln was quite protective of his cheese/shrimp puffs. This clip is pretty funny - at first he is smelling the "sauce" (he loves that word), and then he is laying claim on his plate of food:
So, we'll definitely keep an eye out for another good deal for Thai Garden and go there again! Yummy food, great service, and even a huge fish tank in the middle of the dining area to amuse the kiddos. If you live in the area - give the place a try and let me know what you think. And, I've been encouraged to continue expanding the types of foods my kids try (we found out that Lincoln not only tolerates, but enjoys food with a little bit of spice)!
