Thai Mountain Restaurant
8/21 Goggs St, Jindalee
I've been told that I once went past this restaurant and said "this place looks good - we must try it". Now, I don't actually recall saying that because I don't even remember noticing this restaurant before but Charlie had mentally cataloged it as somewhere to take me. What a nice guy. We went there spontaneously one weekday evening and it was surprisingly busy. If you're familiar with the area, you'll know we don't have a lot of fancy shmancy restaurants so anything that managed to GRAB THE LOCALS get elevated to 'potentially awesome' in my books.
The restaurant is small. There's a bit of outdoor dining space but the night we went, it was FREEZING so I didn't even think about sitting outside. The first thing I noticed is that the staff wear really cute 'costumes'. Really cute.
We got our menus and picked a couple of dishes to share: red duck curry and chili steamed fish. This was a small meal but like I said, it was a spontaneous weeknight meal - can't be too elaborate.
Our food didn't take very long to arrive. The duck curry was rich and creamy and spicy and fabulous. There weren't as many duck pieces as I would like but it was still quite a full-filling dish.
I felt like I should hold back from posting about Thai Mountain Restaurant till I go a few more times and try new things... but I'll post what I have so far anyway. If I get more experiences, I'll update this post or link to any updates.
