I know, I know - you've been anxiously awaiting the return of FoodBaby. How are you supposed to know where to get a nap inducing lunch? Where will you turn to find your new favorite cart food? Have no fear, I am back on the interweb. After a month layoff from posting, due to a wedding and honeymoon, I return to my electronic stomping ground with a whole new list of places to go and try this summer. 

Places I can't wait to check out:
Farm & Fisherman
Mirabella Meatball Co.
Ortlieb's Jazzhouse (just announced that it's coming back)
Talula's Garden
Pub & Kitchen
Erawan Thai in Chinatown
Sahara Indian
Le Virtu
The Corner

In the meantime though, I thought I'd include some highlights from our trip to Thailand. In every aspect, the food is just incredible there. From street carts in Bangkok, to fresh seafood from the Andaman sea in Ao Nang, we ate like kings - plus it's cheap! Here's some of the best we had. Oh, there was also a little stop off in Paris for a 10 hour layover that allowed us to have lunch at a great cafe overlooking Notre Dame cathedral.  Oh the life...

Pad Kee Mao - Drunken Noodles with shrimp.  Cooked in a wok over a charcoal fire. Incredible.

Lunch appetizer at Rei Lei - the leaves were like little wraps with bits of toasted coconut, dried prawns, onion, and spicy peppers.  Drizzle it with the palm sugar in the middle and roll it up.  Yumm!
