During my childhood, Arharn Thai, located at 36th Avenue Astoria, NY used to be one of my go-to places with my family for special occasions such as graduations, anniversaries, and birthdays. To many, it may seem like a typical restaurant. However, every time I pass this restaurant, it always brings back blissful nostalgic memories from decades ago. Today, I was in the mood to re-live those happy memories and was craving for the red snapper that my parents used to order at Arharn Thai. I finally decided to stop by after many years and ordered the same items that my parents would when I was a kid. It may sound ludicrous, but the 30-minutes car ride was totally worth it!
For appetizers, we started off with the following:
Shrimp Tom Yom Soup
For the main course:
Shrimp with Mixed Vegetables
Mixed Vegetable Fried Rice
Fried Red Snapper with Sweet, Sour, & Chili Sauce
The dishes were absolutely delicious and the red snapper was sweet and spicy, just the way my family and I enjoyed it! Lastly, to finish off the meal, we would always have mango with sweet sticky rice as desert. Unfortunately, with summer almost at its end, mango season is also finished and so the restaurant was not offering the item at this time of the year. Nevertheless, if you’re in Astoria, do check this place out!
My trip to Wilmington was quite a memorable and rejuvenating experience. (Thank you Monsieur Urban). Sadly, it was only for one day. From time-to-time, being able to get away from all the chaos in the Big Apple and submerge myself into the subtleness in the south is always therapeutic for me. Also, being right by the beach put me in the mood for some seafood too; so, we decided to stop by a well-known local spot called ‘Fish Bites Seafood Restaurant‘. The name is catchy, the food is great, and so I just had to share some photos on UB.
The fresh seafood selections and the taste in each platter was simply on point! This place is definitely worth visiting again.
