Yes, I know. It’s been a long time between drinks. I’ve been too busy eating and proscrastinating writing by eating some more. I have been to some cracking places recently, so will hopefully have a few more posts up in coming weeks. So mum, you will have something to read soon.
I heart mid week date nights. Especially when it involves anything fried. So, heading to Son in Law on a Wednesday night with husbo was rather ideal. I am the queen of ordering most of the menu and I can assure you, I went to town on the menu at Son in Law. I mean, why wouldn’t you!
Like a few places popping up around Melbs, Son in Law is serving thai dishes with a modern swish. I was going to say twist, but everyone says twist, so let’s go with swish. The staff are so welcoming and there’s no feel of needing to rush through a quick meal which is always a bonus and hard to come by in alot of new popular places.
I’ll just let the food do the talking really, coz let’s face it, that’s what you’re here for.
Betel leaf bites – Crispy prawns, peanuts, mint, lime, roasted coconut, caramelised tamarind sauce
Betel leaves are one of my favourite things and these were delicious. The caramelised taramind sauce should come in drink bottles. And I would purchase it. In case you weren’t sure if that’s what I was leading to.
Son in Law Eggies – Sweet tamarind, chilli, fried shallots
I feel like this needs an Ed Stark meme but one must not venture to Son in Law and not eat those Son in Law eggs. Fried shallots, can you please feature on all meals from now on please.
