Ugh, how I love Thai food. Too much. So much, that I couldn't leave Spice on Saturday night, even after waiting for over an hour for a table. When we got there, they told us it would be 15-20 minutes...yeah, I know, you're thinking, just like that episode of Seinfeld. Except that unlike the smarter Seinfeld, we waited it out. We got there at 9, we didn't get a table until about 10:30.

And, I regret to say, it was totally worth it. Those golden fritters...those drunk-man noodles...I feel like such a sucker.

P.S. James (appel) is in town, and we're having a high time. Upright Citizen's Brigade has been patronized (the Step-fathers were awesome, when you come to town, insist on seeing them), we saw a new film by a French director (see here, or here), and lots and lots of food has been eaten, including a stop at the dessert truck, James's (appel and best) favorite [mobile] food ever.
and this (below) is fairyland itself
the chocolate bread pudding (we got all of these listed...and one more...a pumpkin custard)the crème brûlée
listen, we both know what the picture below signifies. obviously, it was all eaten up. let's not make a big deal about it.the molten chocolateand the hot chocolate. they say if you save and refrigerate this, you can eat it the next day as pudding. yeah. pudding.


  1. A truck that sells dessert? Could you slip him a 20 to come out here. It's warm in California. He'll like it here.

  2. I'll ask. I have a feeling James Appel would be willing to match that $20 if he'd consider coming to California.

  3. Ok, I seriously just started walking to Greenwich Village. Seriously, until I realized I'd eventually hit water and swimming is such a bother.

    It just might be worth it for that crème brûlée.

  4. Oh, and to hang out with you guys.

  5. I want to hang with you guys and James Appel. Why doesn't he want to come to Utah and get a slurpee?

  6. I don't know, Rachel, I just don't know. It's like he doesn't even care about slurpees.
