Thai cuisine cooked by a Laotian chef

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.”

Champa Thai 011-A

We started with the Appetizer Combination Platter (Mee Krob, Spring Rolls, Thai Toast, and Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce):

Champa Thai 007-A

Then we had the Panang Beef Curry with a serving of Sticky Rice:

Champa Thai 009-A

We finished the meal with Fried Champa Thai Chicken:

Champa Thai 010-A

All in all, we had a good time.

Me (with a fresh hair cut, which is too short):

Champa Thai 003-A

Well, the delicious cuisine seemed authentically Thai to us, even though the chef was Laotian.

    i love the colors you are wearing.

    One thing that I always tell myself when I get a too-short haircut: it’s always going to grow out just fine! Some of my favorite cuts started out that way. 🙂

    It was a mistake to look at this post before eating because what you had looked better than my own dinner plans, Gigi. I will be getting a hair cut next week and plan to ask for a short cut, but if you don’t like yours you should find a different stylist next time.
