Thai & Co, North Finchley, LondonAugust 7, 2007
The best Thai in North London. What could be more pleasurable than chunks of aubergine, slices of bamboo shoots and succulent chicken, infused with the sweet, medium hot flavours of the perfect green curry, soaked up with fragant, sticky rice?
Mixed hor d’oevres: a funny looking selection in the photo but absolultely divine to eat. Clockwise, left to right: Fish cake, spring roll, mee grob, chicken satay, dim sum, prawn tempura.
The Pad Thai had just the right balance of the unique signature flavours, and was filled with egg, prawn and chicken, and a healthy topping of peanuts. But the crucial question is, does the Pad Thai past the next day test? Does it re-heat, retaining the same quality of flavour, without turning greasy or stodgy? It does. Perfect.
Whatever kind of Thai craving you have – takeaway at home or a relaxed meal in sweet surroundings, Thai & Co can be relied on every time.
