Is it already the end of February?! And I’m barely posting about what Chris and I did for Valentine’s Day?! Whoops. Life has been rather busy, and I’ve finally finished catching up with my travel posts from December, so time to shift gears into a foodie file post!
Since I had work on Valentine’s Day, Chris and I decided to have lunch the next day at Tahoe Joe’s. TJ’s has happy hour from 11am-6pm on weekdays and that’s basically the only reason we went there for. When we arrived, the lady sat us in the regular dining area but we asked to move to the bar for the happy hour prices.
We ended up getting the Railroad Camp Shrimp, Onion Straws, Spinach & Artichoke Dip, and Cabin Fries. The shrimp was amazing. It’s basically tempura-battered shrimp served with a spicy garlic-soy dipping sauce. 10/10 would come back just for that.
THAI BASIL RESTAURANT
The next day, I was craving Thai food so we headed over to Thai Basil Restaurant for dinner. It was a little out of the way for us since it was on the other side of town, but we still made the drive. Chris got the cashew chicken with a spicy level of 6/10; I opted for the yellow curry with a spicy level of 3/10. We shared an order of their chicken fried rice and decided to make it a level 8 on their spicy level.
This place fulfilled my cravings. Their yellow curry was delicious, and it paired really well with the fried rice. I mean, anything goes with rice because rice is life. I love this little Thai restaurant! It was pretty cool they used a numeric scale for adjusting their food’s spiciness to the customer’s level. I love hot Cheetos but I can’t really tolerate spicy entrees and I tell you, the rice was burning my insides!
Aaaand that’s how Chris & I basically spent our Valentine’s Day/week this year. No fancy gifts, just good food in our bellies! ‘Til the next foodie file!
P.S. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
