Ever since that Four Things post, I’ve been totally jonesing for Tohm Kah Gai. This little place on Northwest Boulevard called Nong’s Hunan Express has the best Thai food I’ve ever had. Okay, granted that the only Thai food I’ve ever had has been in the U.S., and the preponderance of it has been in Ohio, but oh God, their tohm kah gai! I just scarfed some for lunch, with a side of steamed rice to fill me up. 

What is tohm kah gai? It says this on their menu: “Piquant Light Soup and Coconut Milk with Chicken or Tofu, Galonga, Mushroom, Tomato, Green Onion, and Sweet Onion.” My happy taste buds say it’s heaven. (Is it rude to lick the bowl in the privacy of your own cubicle?)
