David and I had a nice lunch at Champa Thai Restaurant in Pearl Kai Shopping Center. It is owned and operated by a Laotian. I asked the waiter why the restaurant was not called Champa Lao. He replied with a laugh, “No one would come.”
We started with the Appetizer Combination Platter (Mee Krob, Spring Rolls, Thai Toast, and Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce):
Then we had the Panang Beef Curry with a serving of Sticky Rice:
We finished the meal with Fried Champa Thai Chicken:
All in all, we had a good time.
Me (with a fresh hair cut, which is too short):
Well, the delicious cuisine seemed authentically Thai to us, even though the chef was Laotian.
