Preparing for Thailand

As my trip to Thailand is a only 4 days aways, I am realizing all of the things I need to get done before I take off.

The office staff wanted to make sure that I would not waste away while there, as they steered me away from even trying to order a steak. They were shocked to hear that I had never tried Thai food, and so we made a trip to a small restaurant just of Jasper Ave for lunch yesterday.

I am not a fan of spicy foods, i tend to stay away from them, as I can not handle the hotness of them. However, with 4 good friends they managed to pick out 7 dishes that I should try.

Let me tell you... if you have never had Thai food, GO!! It was the most flavourful, tasteful food I have had for a long time. You are able to order your food to the spicy level that suits you as well, which was a bonus for me. My favorite dish was the Pai Thai, a noodle, and meat dish that is amazing. The coconut rice was also a big hit. I would suggest staying away from the salad rolls, unless you like the pallet of slimy uncooked rice wraps.

Overall the experience was fantastic, I would give Thai food at Bua Thai a solid 4/5 stars. Not a meal I want everyday, but a great treat a few times a month!

Wholly only four days! I promise that I will call this weekend. I can't believe that you are going to be gone for that long. When you come back it will almost be time for Vegas!
