Thai Dish Restaurant in Centralia

We left Seattle Center about 3:00PM. We were heading to Centralia for the night and we estimated that it will take us slightly over 1 hour as Centralia is about 80 miles from Seattle Center. We were very wrong because the traffic snarled on I-5 and it took us more than 3 hours to reach our destination.

After checked into the hotel and washed up, it was already 7PM. We decided to just check out the neighbourhood by foot to look for a place for dinner. Enough driving for Ben for the day.

We ordered a Tom Yum Koong to start with. The spicy and sour soup with shrimp, mushroom, tomatoes and pineapple whet up our appetite. However, after the soup was served, it took a long while before the rest of our dishes to arrive. We finished the soup which already gotten cold before the rest of the food arrived.

I do like the basil flavour in this dish.

We bought 2 sliders for $7 from Morning Star Barbeque & Deli. We opted for Beef Brisket with Espresso BBQ and Pulled Pork with Secret #11 sauce which supposed to be very spicy. These were pretty good but really small bites.

Nanzaro went for Philly Cheese Steak for $8. The caramelized onions add sweetness to the sandwich. At least this is a full size sandwich. (more…)
