Attempting to find delicious fresh stir fry away from your own kitchen can be a gamble. So many over soy sauce, over cook and over price. It’s very easy to mess a Solid Simple stir fry up.
Not to mention it is rare that you know where your meats and veggies are being sourced from. If the spices are fresh or stale. If the oil they are cooking with has turned rancid. Rancidity is a bigger problem than most think. Oils turn rancid if not stored properly very quickly. Hopefully you trust your restaurant of choice.
For our night on the town we decided on Thai Fresh. And oh how fresh it was. Absolutely perfect. Of course I am a fan of my own cooking as I tend to add a southern flare to almost everything, thank you Granny. BUT!!!! Having someone else slice, dice, slave n clean is always a treat even if in your own house. (hint hubby hint).
I love the Chicken Stir Fry. It was light in oils, not too heavy on the sodium and delightfully crispy. I love a veggie with the crisp still kickin. The nicest thing about Thai Fresh is you can pick and choose all your your ingredients right there. Completely Customizable. Freshness at your fingertips. Yes Please.
Though the ambience isn’t fancy it is exactly Austintatious. We weren’t in flip flops and shorts but we also weren’t in heels and pearls. Well, wedges don’t count as heels. Ladies come on, we could run a halfy in our wedges. But don’t tell the men because that nice foot rub when you get home cannot be undermined so the secret is ourrrrrs (insert evil laugh.)
We did decide to spice up the evening with a private chauffeur. We used a limo company to find a nice Escalade and added a little romance to the evening (aka champagne). Limo’s Austin came recommended from our neighbor and our driver, Ali, was so romantic, oops I mean professional. He opened all our doors even to the restaurants. It was a surprisingly nice adventure to say the least. We took a detour to the Capitol grounds and went for a stroll (dropped a hint about afore mentioned foot rub) “Oh how steep these shoes are, no no I’m fine honey, this is such an amazing evening, I love you.” Then off to more stuffing at Lick. THAT IS A FANTASTIC SWEET TREAT!
Mom’s night out was a success!!!
Made me miss the no kid life for just a sec, till I got a kiss from my munch. Melt!
