vieng thai photos

i'm borrowing my aunt's camera and i realize i'm an idiot even with point and shoot cameras. i did manage to get some good photos at vieng thai which i have already reviewed here and some others that don't look so bad shrunken down. here's my work in order from favorite to least favorite:

som tum - green papaya salad, thai style (still the best in houston) $6.99

plaa pad ped- crispy catfish in curry paste with basil $9.99

boat noodle soup - most popular noodle soup dish in thailand $5.99

tom kha gai - hot and spicy coconut milk soup w/chicken $6.99

tom yum noodle soup - hot and sour soup w/rice noodles $6.99

the soups were great for the slight hangovers at the table. each of the soups we ordered were tangy but had its own unique flavors. the tom kha was glorious in all its coconut milk goodness. the boat noodle soup was very beefy and reminiscent of vietnamese hot and sour soup. i call this one thai pho. the tom yum noodle soup which also contained rice noodles was joined by minced pork, fish balls, and plenty of bean sprouts was the lightest and had the most fish sauce flavor.

vieng thai actually started out as a thai grocery store that sold noodle soups on sunday. their noodle soups were so good and wildly popular that they closed the market and opened a restaurant instead. the two noodle soups were ordered by my brother's thai/cambodian girlfriend who has been coming to VT since she was a kid. i'm glad she introduced me to a whole other section of the menu. there are 5 other noodle soups on the menu. i look forward to trying a few more.

vieng thai is still undoubtedly the best thai restaurant in houston.
