portland, or : kati portland.

ok, we go from pretty good thai in chicago to absolutely incredible thai in portland ... specifically, kati portland.

this spot was a recommend from former chicago vegan, now the pdx vegan, kilee. (as are a couple other amazing spots coming up, so get readyyy.)

anyway, josh & i both lurve thai food, so kati was a must stop for our first dinner in the city of roses ... especially when i did a deeper dive into this joint : "we are small, local thai vegetarian/vegan cuisine ... our thai cooking roots are infused with original flavors, inventive style, displayed in a chef-driven evolving menu ... all we want for our guests is simple: the best possible thai food experience in portland." can't speak to all of portland ... but this was potentially the best thai i've ever had. for real. 

we did some sharing & some not. here's what i had ...

 kharee pup :
thai-style spiral puff filled with stir-fried curry of potato, onion, carrot & cilantro, then deep fried to perfection. served with house pickled cucumber. 
can't go wrong when "deep fried" is in the description. 

nam kao tod :
crispy rive with fresh herbs, green onion, red onions, cilantro, carrot, glass noodle, peanuts & a twist of lime, served with lettuce.
love me a lettuce cup. this was deliciousss. 

gang dang (red curry) :
coconut milk red curry with sugar pea, pumpkin, bamboo shoot, carrot, thai eggplant, red & green bell peppers & sweet basil. 
the. best. red. curry. EVER. in. my. LIFE. legit. was so full after our apps, but managed to inhale basically the entire bowl. fine. i left some veggies, but literally drank the curry. omg. want more now. 

pretty sure i'm going to say this about every place in portland ... but kati is an actual must stop. we need something like this in chicago. vegan/vegetarian ... authentic ... delicious thai.
