Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another edition of InMotion Hosting’s Foodie Friday’s!
It seems like every other Friday lately is some kind of “National (insert unhealthy food type) Day?” Leave it to us Americans to have days of the year dedicated to glorifying unhealthy food choices haha. Well, I’m not complaining. I LOVE having an excuse to indulge in unhealthy treats heh.
Today’s no exception to the unhealthiness of a “National Food Holiday!” In fact, it’s probably the most unhealthy of the food types……..
Yet again, I only find out about it after our lunch time, soooo, this means I know what dessert I’m having for din din!
Anyway, backtracking to today’s lunch. We opted for yet another nostalgic place that we used to order from back at the Marina del Rey office, Ekkamai Thai. This is one of those places where you gotta know what’s good, otherwise their food can be pretty mediocre. That being said, the office gave this place 3.75 star rating.
The highest rated dishes included the Pad Ekkamai (w/ chicken or beef), Pad See-Ew (w/ chicken), Orange Chicken, Steamed Pork Dumplings, Yellow Curry (w/ chicken), and the Green Curry (w/ chicken). Basically, the noodle and curry dishes here are excellent!
On the other hand, dishes that didn’t quite get a decent rating were not given a low rating because of the food flavor or quality itself, but due to the fact that either their order was not correct or it didn’t quite settle in their tummies too well heh. So, it’s not really worth mentioning the dishes because the rating would’ve been higher by avoiding things such as 1, make sure your order is correct. 2, Thai food can be pretty heavy and greasy at times, so make sure you have the appetite and iron stomach for it.
Oh wait, I take part of the previous statement back, out of all of the different items I’ve had at this place, the Tom Yum soup is quite disappointing. It lacks in flavor and tastes pretty watered down.
Well, to conclude, the downside of placing large orders, such as for an office of 15+ people, would be that it’s a bit tough to make sure every order is correct. Always sucks to be the person with the messed up food order! Anyhow, if you’re ever in the mood for Thai and are in the Marina del Rey/South Culver City area, give Ekkamai a try!
