Depends on my mood! All of the above are good, plus Japanese udon, and real non-instant ramen; also seafood Alfredo. There’s a local Thai place that was serving Khao Soi Gai, a coconut curry chicken soup with noodles that was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten, but it looks like it’s currently not on the menu.
@jerk_nugget I’m hoping it’s just temporary because of Covid restrictions, since it’s a dish that isn’t as suitable for take-out as some of the others. I’ve never heard of laksa before, but I looked it up and it does sound similar, and delicious. Did you make it?
@Kyeh i hope so too! i haven’t made it yet, just doing the groundwork i want to make the paste that forms the base of the dish myself, so i’ll have to see what’s at the grocery store next trip. i’m lucky in that i think i can find most of it - i know fresh turmeric is there, and i think i have seen galangal but i’m not 100%. already have shrimp paste in the fridge. there’s some kind of nut and leaf i’ll have to substitute, but i think i can make do and come out with something that’s pretty tasty. we’ll see!
I’m originally from the East Coast, where it’s a common dish, so I never gave it a second thought until my family moved to Indiana. Turns out it never made its way out here (very few Italian-Americans in my area), so all my Hoosier friends think I’m some kind of culinary genius.
Alternatively, pastina. I’m still trying to get my grandma’s recipe right. (Hers involved milk and cheddar cheese.)
