One night, we decided to go to a restaurant in Hell's Kitchen with our friends Ciara and David, when we stumbled upon Yum Yum Too, the sister restaurant of Yum Yum, a Thai place located a block away, that I often saw in commercials at the movie theater few years ago. The place was quiet, although full. We started off by trying few drinks. David had a cocktail that I admit I cannot name, but remember had a nice cantaloupe taste...and color. On my side, I went for my usual Thai iced tea that was perfect.

For appetizer, we decided to try few dishes. The first one was quite surprising: it was corn fritters. It was really good: both savory and sweet, it was delightfully crispy and not greasy.

The second appetizer was vegetable spring rolls that were quite good, except the carrot sauce that was ok. I would have definitely preferred a plum sauce, but, despite that, the rolls were perfect, the shell not being too thick.

For our entrees, we all got different dishes: Jodi got sautéed vegetables with tofu that was made of broccoli, napa cabbage, bell pepper, bok choi, mushrooms, zucchini, string beans, chinese broccoli in garlic sauce. I admit that I found that dish a bit bland.

Chiara chose the chicken Penang curry:

While I went for the chicken massaman curry. Both were really good, not spicy.

David went for the duck tamarind that was delicious, well cooked with a crispy skin. It was composed of bell pepper, zucchini, string bean, broccoli, bok choy with sweet & sour tamarind sauce.

All dishes came with rice. On my side, I asked to have some sticky rice as I love it.

Of course, we could not leave without dessert. We chose two:

The first one is fried ice cream, a fantastic dessert, sweet and crunchy on the outside and creamy inside.

The second was mango sticky rice that was also delicious, the mango being ripe and the rice swimming in a nice amount of coconut milk.
