We had dinner at Azuthai
restaurant at the exact date and time when earth hour
was observed. Earth hour is a worldwide movement that called for shutting down your lights at home, work, the mall for an hour on March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm local time. The lights in the restaurant were turned down that’s why it was challenging to get good pictures.
It’s been a while since I’ve eaten in a restaurant where I left really happy and satisfied. In Azuthai everything was good. Only a couple of dishes were too spicy for me. But then I have a low threshold for hot food. The next day I told my other friends about how good Azuthai was.
There were supposed to be 7 of us for dinner but only 4 showed up. Deb must have forgotten how many we are because she still ordered enough for 7. The waitress kept asking if there were still others coming. We did a good job of polishing off the food though. We did have leftovers of the bagoong rice and phad thai.
the kitchen was the only place where the lights were fully on
dining area with minimal lights
Thankfully the area where we sat had more lights on. These photos were shot at an iso of 1600 as suggested by Elisa. I think they came out all right. Thanks for the tip!

This soup is just to die for. Next time I want a whole order just for me. It reminds me of laksa soup. The fresh mushrooms, tomatoes and chicken strips were a perfect complement to the rich and flavorful soup.
Tom Ka Gai P345
chicken soup with galangal, keffir lime leaves and coconut milk
The lamb in this dish must have been cooked for hours. It was melt in your mouth tender and the curry was only mildly spiced. This dish is perfect with white rice.

Pad Thai P325

The kale veggies was sooooooooo hot and spicy! The crispy pork was more to my taste.
Pahk Kahna Moo Krop P465
stir fried kale with crispy pork
Both desserts were refreshing and a perfect end to a spicy meal. A good thing they did was to freeze coconut milk and used that to top the dessert. This avoided the dilution from water if they used ice. We also ordered Mango with sticky rice but I forgot to take a picture of it.
