Scratch that. One night in Park City.
We ate dinner at a restaurant called Bangkok Thai, though.
A “rest day” for the Tour de France and Cholula NOT needing post-surgery care yesterday meant it was a prime evening for date night!
The restaurant had outdoor seating, right on Main Street. The weather was ideal, finally cooler after a hot day (even for Park City). We were situated for good people-watching. I just love going out to eat.
Since we’re still in our mini-ban on alcohol, I asked the waitress about interesting Thai drink options. She suggested a Thai iced tea. I ordered it, despite the facts that I don’t like tea very much and also don’t care for sweet drinks. But why not try something new?
It was a lovely, vibrant orange color when it arrived at the table, topped with cream. A quick stir made it resemble an orange creamsicle in a glass. I bravely gave it a tentative sip.
It wasn’t as sweet as I had expected, but it definitely tasted like tea. It was kind of like melted tea ice cream. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t my favorite new thing. And it definitely wasn’t a glass of wine.
We shared an awesome plate of fresh spring rolls- one with lobster and mango, one with crab and apple, and a pretty traditional one with shrimp and rice noodles. We experimented with the various dipping sauces. My combination of choice was the tamarind sauce with Sriracha- nice and spicy!
We shared two dinner options- pad thai with shrimp and green curry with veggies and tofu. Both were delish, and we chatted away as the stars began to come out above us. People strolled by, some with European accents, some marveling at my salmon-colored beverage. The kitchen was as slow as a snail, but the service made up for it.
It didn’t take long for our bellies to become full. As she wrapped up our leftovers, our sweet server asked us if we would like to participate in the two-for-one special… yes, please! Bonus! With that discount and without the usual bottle of wine on the bill, our date night was an unexpected steal. The lights of Main Street winked at us as we strolled back to the car. It was fun to be out and about, even just for dinner.
Not bad for a Tuesday.
Now, if I could only get that song out of my head…
