Hot and spicy dishes at the Thai House

HOT and spicy with a dash of sweet taste are the dominant flavors in the two dishes that we tried at the Thai House in Garapan on Saturday evening. Not so hungry, we decided to check out the place and ordered a couple of dishes. Our order of Pah Peah Todd was actually a plate of petite spring rolls stuffed with fresh, finely chopped Julienne mushrooms, carrots, cabbage,...
