Coconut Thai Restaurant Front Street Issaquah

There’s a new Thai restaurant in town, Coconut Thai on Front Street, downtown Issaquah.  It had great reviews so we decided to try it out last night for dinner.  We arrived just before 5 PM to avoid the crowds — we did not have to wait at all.  Friendly staff seated us at one of the booth seats.  We ordered spring rolls right away with our Thai Iced Tea.  They came out not too long after, accompanied with sweet sauce, delicious and perfect start to our meal.  We were very hungry as we did a short hike on the Grand Ridge Trail earlier in the day.

Next, we ordered Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken, Padseew with Beef (kids’ favorite), and Red Curry with soft Tofu.  Pineapple Fried Rice was delicious with a unique flavor, different than other Thai recipes.  Our son detected nuts in the dish, which is unusal.  We asked the server if there were any nuts in the rice, and he replied “no”.  However, we can see and taste big chunks of cashews in the dish.  Personally I loved the cashews, but if our other son would have ate it, it would have been dangerous as he has nut allergies.  So, be careful about ordering as they may think peanuts are the only dangerous nuts, in fact cashews can be just as deadly for nut allergy sufferers.

Padseew tasted good, there were some large chunks of cabbage in it as fillers, which we haven’t seen before.  The flavor was good and the kids enjoyed it.  Red Curry with Tofu was good, but nothing to write home about.  It also had too much fillers, this time too many bamboo shoots.  We also ordered Coconut Ice Cream, which came with some chopped peanuts sprinkled on top, delicious and a perfect way to end the meal.  As we were paying for our check, the server brought my son a complimentary coconut cupcake to take home.  That was a sweet touch.  We will be back, but we will be very careful about the nuts in the dishes.

Easy and Quick Bacon

Kirkland Fully Cooked Easy Bacon

Does your family love bacon? Who doesn’t like the delicious smell of bacon.  But do you hate the grease splatters and cleaning up the greasy pan afterwards? Our family have been enjoying the pre-cooked bacon from Costco.  You simply line them up on a foil sheet in the toaster oven (use a cookie sheet or pan that came with the toaster oven) and toast it once or twice, depending on how crispy you want them.  You can also do the same in the regular oven.  Gently dab it with a paper towel and you got delicious crispy bacon in minutes with quick clean up.  Just toss the foil sheet in the garbage.

Try it, Hormel Kirkland Signature Bacon from Costco.  Delicious and easy.

Pumpkin Waffles

Saturday morning usually means waffles, pancakes or hash brown skillets in our home.  This morning, we decided to make pumpkin waffles with bacon.  I mix half of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin pancake/waffle mix and half Carbon Malted Waffle Mix.  5 minutes each on the Krups waffle iron and you are good to go.  It’s not too pumpkin-like so husband enjoys it too.  My little 9 year old decided to decorate with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, bananas and raspberries.  Delicious! No need for maple syrup this morning.
