I'm usually the kind of gal that doesn't branch out gastronomically. If I'm eating at the Olive Garden, I get the Tuscan soup and a hazelnut cream Italian soda. If it's Taco Bell, it's the 7 layer burrito with nachos belgrande; my favorite Mexican restaurant, Roberto's Tacos (where all the Mexican's eat- Taco Bell doesn't count as Mexican) has the best chili relleno washed down with icy horchata. Unless it's a burger and fries, that is the extent of my dining comfort zone.
I had a hot lunch date today, we ate here. I was a little nervous at first, but I went with the flow. I've been on an 'Office' kick, and last night Ryan mentioned Pad Thai, so I took a leap and ordered it.
It hurts my heart to not have known that it existed before. I will never be the same. It was tangy, limey, with peanutty crunchy goodness and a hint of cilantro.
So we sat, ate with chopsticks, and made googly eyes at each other. We did have to switch spots when Liam got spaghetti sauce on Lewis' dress shirt, but other than that, it was romantic.

OH, man. Are we going to have fun when you get here! Not a single Olive Garden or Taco Bell on the island! You are going to fall in love with SO many new cuisines. I can't wait to share my love for gastronomy with you!!

I can't wait to share your love for gastronomy either. By the way, I think the guy typed loserface. I'm a cynic. And I think HE's a loserface. Ha,ha,ha.

I think I am so funny.

I'm the same way, except the only time I branched out, I regretted it. Mahi Mahi fish at The Cedars. Yuck. I buried it under my lettuce.
