Jeremy, our friend and officially amazing Seattle tour guide, took us to Thai Tom’s, a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant on the Ave in the U-District. We then proceeded to eat the best Thai food we’ve ever had.
The part of all of this, besides the incredible food, was watching the cook prepare the food. He could feed a small army in fifteen minutes. Dude was fast. We just sat there spellbound as he flung oil, rice, veggies, and pepper around into pots and pans that sparked on the indoor metal grill.
A word to the wise: If you don’t like spicy food, definitely let them know that. They rate their spiciness on a 1 to 5 scale. I had a 3, and although tasty, it was definitely h.o.t.
