Siam Terrace

A few weeks back, we stopped in to Siam Terrace in Urbana for some dinner. I wish I would have taken a few interior photos - it is pretty cute inside. Instead, here's a shot of our Thai Iced Tea:

YUM. We had the Dragon Shrimp as an appetizer: "Four marinated tiger shrimp wrapped in egg noodles and deep fried served with our special orange sauce."

These are delicious. The sauce was sort of like orange juice - quite watery, so we dipped them in the sweet chili sauce that came with our other appetizer, eggplant tempura:

We shared 2 entrees - the first: scallops in a clay pot with glass noodles (below). The scallops were perfect and gingery. Highly recommend this dish!

The second was the Pad See You - big ole flat noodles! This dish is super yummy and i love eating those wide noodles.

The whole reason for this post? To show the best dessert in Champaign-Urbana: the fried bananas with coconut ice cream and honey. OMG - you have to save room for these. I'm actually thinking right now of going up there tonight just for these dang bananas. Ken calls this his "Ratatouille" moment - the scene where the critic eats the ratatouille and flashes back to his childhoood. He says these bananas do that to him! Just look at them:

They are hot little blobs of goodness.
