Pre-Holiday Blogger Bash

Last night, I attended a pre-holiday blogger dinner at Tuk Tuk. There are lots of bloggers in the Atlanta area and last night, eleven of them (plus me) showed up.

And Kristy and Me. (Linking to all those blogs took forever!)

We started out sitting at the bar for an hour, trying out some of the appetizers. I only ended up getting a decent picture of one of them – the Mieng Kum which was a spinach wrap with lime, ginger, onions, roasted peanuts and coconut with a caramelized palm sugar. I also tried the Thai samosa and the Roti Ke-Yow Whan which was crispy roti with a spicy green curry dipping sauce. I could have eaten that sauce with a spoon, but I refrained.

I actually sort of liked being at the bar because I was able to walk around and talk to everyone. However, after a while, we all got hungry and were sat at a table. I wasn’t starving and honestly, I felt a little guilty for spending money on drinks, so I got a smaller dinner – the Tom Yum Koong – shrimp in a lemongrass broth. The waitress suggested that I get a bowl of rice with the soup if I wanted to have it as an entree, so that’s what I did.

For dessert, we were given a huge Bangkok snow cone to share. And for some reason, I didn’t try it. Blasphemy!

Looks good though. All in all, a fun night with fun friends.
