I tasted Thai food for the first time when I was in college.  I remember having Thai iced tea and loving how sweet and refreshing it was.  Then I had tom kha gai and thought how unusual (and delightful!) it was to be sipping spicy, tangy, coconut milk.  And I finished the meal with a [continue reading… ]
