Uninzi lokutya kunye nomoya kwi-Saratoga's Mint Leaf Cuisine yi-Thai kwimvelaphi efana nabanini i-Mint Sirisawad kunye ne-Laksana Chuangpia, kodwa imenyu inikeza i-melange yezithako ezivela kwiindawo ezahlukeneyo zase-Asia nangaphaya. Kukho ingca yelamuni kunye netshilisi evela eThailand, i-udon noodles kunye ne-nori yolwandle yaseJapan, i-Greek feta, kunye ne-hamburger yaseMelika yonke.



Sekunjalo, yidessert yemango kunye nerayisi encangathi (i-7 yeedola) eza kundibuyisela apha ngokuphindaphindiweyo. Esi sidlo - izilayi zemango eziswiti ezidityaniswe nerayisi enyibilikayo efakwe kubisi lwekhokhonathi kwaye inongwe ngetyuwa encinci - iyakhobokisa. Ukugqibelana kwam ndandikuyo kwindawo yokutyela ekwicandelo labakhenkethi eBangkok, apho izibane ze-neon zajika ubusuku bube yimini kwaye iindlovu ezincinci zazizulazula esitratweni namakhwenkwe akwishumi elivisayo emiqolo yawo. Inguqulelo ka Mint Leaf ye dessert yakudala yaseThai indibuyisele umva ngokucacileyo ngendingothukanga ukubona indlovu igxumela eBig Basin Way.

Sele ingunyaka ukusukela oko iMint Leaf Cuisine yavulwa, izisa uhlobo lwayo lokutyela eAsia kwindawo enqabileyo yeevenkile kunye neeresityu kwindawo eyimbali yedolophu.





Ukongeza kwimenyu ephambili yesidlo sangokuhlwa, ebandakanya ukhetho olunomtsalane lwemifuno, iMint Leaf inemenyu yesidlo sasemini enexabiso elifanelekileyo. Zonke izitya eziphambili zesidlo sasemini ziza kunye nesinye sezitikha zeembiza (zixabisa i-$ 9 kwimenyu yokutya). Amadombolo athosiweyo azaliswe ingulube egayiweyo kunye ne-anyanisi eluhlaza, kwaye isetyenziswe nge-mayonnaise ebabayo kunye ne-sauce ye-soy kunye neviniga emnyama.

Kwii-appetizers ndizamile, izitikha zeembiza kunye neSaratoga Curry Puffs (i-$ 10) yayingcono kakhulu. Ngokufana kakhulu neesamosas zaseIndiya, iikhari ezine kwiodolo yethu zazaliswa iitapile ezinongwe ngomgubo wekhari. I-pastry nganye e-savory yanikezelwa kwisitya esincinci kunye nesaladi yokupholisa yamakhukhamba adiyiweyo kunye ne-peanut sauce yokudipha.



Ngoononkala, itshizi ekhrimu kunye ne-avocado wontons (i-10 yeedola), nangona kunjalo, kubonakala ngathi umzamo ongakumbi usetyenzisiwe kwinkcazo kunencasa. Beza neeribhoni ezicekethekileyo zebeet kunye nekherothi ezibotshwe ngeenxa zonke kunye necephe lesosi eswiti-namuncu ngaphantsi kweqhekeza ngalinye. Kodwa ukupakishwa okuhle akukwazanga kumelana nenyaniso yokuba unonkala wayenqabile kwaye wayelinganisa unonkala ekuqaliseni (indawo exhaphake kakhulu kwiindawo zokutyela ezininzi).

Indawo yokutyela eyokozelayo, ngamanye amaxesha iba ngaphezulu, ihombise inokukukhumbuza itempile ehonjisiweyo yaseThai. Iibhena ezimhlophe zijinga ngaphezulu kwegumbi lokutyela njengeseyile, kunye neqela elinye leeribhoni ezinemibala ezihombisa izindlu zomoya zaseThai. Igumbi lokutyela eliseleyo lihonjiswe ngegqabi elibomvu negolide, nomfanekiso kaBuddha encuma ezantsi ngoxolo. Imiqamelo yesilika kunye neetapestries zisetyenziselwa ukuthambisa izitulo kunye neebhentshi zamaplanga.



Indawo yokutyela yeyokuqala kaSirisawad kunye nenkosikazi yakhe, uChuangpia. Baye bachitha unyaka bevavanya iiresiphi ekhaya kunye nokuxuba kunye nokuthelekisa izithako ababethanda ukwenza ukhetho lweMint Leaf Cuisine, abathi ke bafundisa umpheki oyintloko uJansri Wongkham. IChuangpia igxile kwimisebenzi yangaphambili yendlu, kodwa ingena ekhitshini xa ifuneka. Kwaye xa engekho kwindawo yokutyela, uSirisawad usebenza njengomphandi kwilebhu yaseSilicon Valley.

Ngexesha lotyelelo lwethu lwesidlo sangokuhlwa, isuphu ye-nori kunye nesquid efakwe (i-12 yeedola) idibanise izinto zaseJapan kunye neVietnam ukuze zibe nesiphumo esincomekayo. Izikwere ze-nori yolwandle kunye namakhowa e-shiitake adada kumhluzi we-miso onetyuwa kancinane. Irayisi ye-noodles ye-Rice vermicelli kunye ne-squid yesitayela saseVietnam, efakwe kwinyama yehagu egayiweyo kunye neentwana ezininzi ze-noodles, yenza oku kube kwanele ukuba ababini babelane okanye inxalenye yesitya esikhulu. Iskwidi esixutyiweyo sasikwicala elinzima, nangona kunjalo.



Kwakhona kwakunzima ukugquma kwi-Tilapia yoMlilo (i-16 yeedola), ngokungathi bekukho umgubo omninzi kwintlama okanye intlanzi ihleli ixeshana phantsi kwesibane sobushushu. Iifilts ezintathu zentlanzi zaziphekwe kakhulu, ngokunjalo. Kulihlazo, kuba esi sidlo sinencasa entle evela kwisosi yetshilisi kunye nengca yelamuni, kwaye ibinokuba yeyona khosi ibalaseleyo.

Endaweni yoko, i-garlic rib-eye (i-18 yeedola) - ii-cubes ze-steak eziqhotsiweyo kunye ne-petite organic beech mushroom kwaye zinongwe ngegalikhi - wathatha loo mbeko. Irayisi eqhotsiweyo yenkukhu (i-) enetshili kunye nebasil yayiluhle kakhulu, uhlobo oluphezulu lokutya kwasesitalatweni saseThai. Yayinongwe ngokwaneleyo kangangokuba ndandibulela ukuba neglasi egcwele umzimba, enefruity Gew├╝rztraminer (i-), idibaniso yewayini yakudala edibanisa ukutya kwaseThai, ukuyikhapha.



Ngexesha lotyelelo lwesidlo sasemini, ndadlula ngaphaya koluhlu lwewayini ndaze ndayalela iti ye-Thai enomkhenkce (i-), engumbala wecantaloupe evuthiweyo kwaye ihanjiswa kwiglasi ende yepilsner. Idityaniswe nobisi oluncitshisiweyo, iti yenza i-sweet, i-concoction ecebileyo ene-dessert ngaphezu kokusela, kodwa inamandla okucima umlilo waso nasiphi na isidlo esineziqholo.

Bendilindele ukuba ikheri ebomvu yemango kunye nenyama yenkomo (i-.50) ipakishe ubushushu obuncinci, kodwa yajika yathambile kunokuba bendilindele. Iziqwenga ezikhulu zenyama yenkomo ethambileyo, iipepile ezibomvu zentsimbi, iicashews kunye neerasentyisi zazihlanjwa kumhluzi wobisi lwekhokhonathi. Ndingathanda ngakumbi ivumba elimnandi le-kaffir lime kunye nengca yelamuni emhluzini, kwaye ndingathanda ukucela ukulungiswa kwe-spicier kancinane kwixesha elizayo. Kodwa enye yeendwendwe zam zesidlo sasemini yayithanda kanye ngale ndlela yayiyiyo kwaye yafunga ukuba iza kuyiodola kwakhona xa ibuya.

Imango yakhe kunye nenkukhu yakhe yecashew (i-.95), ezele ngamaqhekeza amnandi eminqathe, iseleri kunye nentsimbi yepepile, yayintle. Kodwa ipayinapple turmeric irayisi eqhotsiweyo kunye nelolipops yenkukhu (i-$ 9.50) mhlawumbi yayiyeyona nto ingcono kwisidlo sasemini. I-Tequila-marinated chicken drumettes yayizele incasa, njengoko kwakunjalo kwiinduli zegolide zerayisi ezigalelwe iirasentyisi, iicashews kunye neminqathe ehanjiswa ngayo.

Inkonzo yayichwayitile kwaye inyameko, nangona kutyelelo lwam omabini kwakukho iitafile ezimbalwa kuphela. Ndingathanda ukucinga ukuba injalo rhoqo apha, kuba iMint Leaf yindawo yokutyela elungileyo. Ngoqwalaselo oluthe kratya lokuqinisekisa ukuba zonke izitya ziphekwe ngokufanelekileyo, le dayimani kwindawo erhabaxa ingajika ibe lilitye elinqabileyo lokwenyani. Musa nje ukutshintsha irayisi encangathi kunye nemango.
