Toomie’s Thai

Last weekend, I was craving some Thai food.  So, my friend and I headed over to Toomie’s Thai in Alameda, California for some dinner.

I sipped a tall glass of Thai iced tea as we perused the menu:


We decided to start off with their Tamarind fish off their specialty menu:

Next, we got their yellow curry:

And my favorite is always Pad Thai

Feeling glutinous after dinner, we decided to order dessert – fried banana with coconut ice cream:

The best part of this restaurant for me is getting take out – it’s easy and fast and you can even do it online.  Never disappoints and if you can’t get a seat (or more like parking in that area), you can always get it to go!
