Siamese Princess – Ardmore

I wanted to go to Blue Fin with my mom, but damn it, they’re closed on mondays. Note to you all… do not trust the hours on Yelp. Seriously, because if I hadn’t called Blue Fin and had just gone all the way there, trusting the hours on Yelp, I would have been angered. So with that little setback, I decided to go for thai instead. And I wanted to stay close to home, so we went to Siamese Princess. This place is totally small and cute and decorated up the wazoo with paraphanalia from thailand.
I decided to go crazy and get a random appetizer – steamed kow-park-more. These were a couple of steamed thin rice crepes filled with chicken, turnips, and ground peanuts, topped with fried garlic and veggies, served on a bed of julienned veggies with a vinaigrette soy sauce. Strangely enough, the actual crepe part was my least favorite part of this dish, but I liked everything else about it. Here’s to me for trying new things!
My ma got the chicken and eggplant dish. It was chock full of chicken, eggplant, and all kinds of veggies in a savory and slightly spicy sauce. This didn’t have coconut milk in it, which neither of us like, so it was a win for us. Sorry, I forget the official name of this, and damn Siamese Princess for not having much of an online presence.
I was feeling noodley, so I got the pad see ¬†yew with tofu. Why tofu? I like it, and I just didn’t feel like chicken that night. This was chock full of veggies as well, which I thoroughly appreciated. I always love how the green beans are barely cooked, just the way I like them. And I love me some wide flat rice noodles. Everything tasted super fresh in this dish. And it was plenty of food. There’s only one lady working in the front of the house. Even still, she did a great job, was friendly, and it didn’t take long for the food to come out. I’ll definitely be back!
