I’ve been saving this random post for dinnertime because I want you to be hungry when you read it
The other night we visited a little Thai spot called The Smiling Elephant, and man… it was good!The Smiling Elephant is this tiny hut tucked in 12 South (Nashville, not DC!).There are only a handful of tables inside, which makes it even more charming.Anthony and I thought we’d had enough Asian food after our Vietnam and Singapore adventures, but we were ready for more as soon as we saw these rice paper rolls…As all the five-star reviews hinted, each spoonful of coconut soup was blissful.I got the pad kra pao, a spicy pork stir fry complete with a runny egg. Looks kinda gross, tastes completely good.Two thumbs up for The Smiling Elephant (with one wavering slightly because they don’t serve alcohol.) YUM.
Anyways, after our Thai-tastic meal, we headed to War Memorial Plaza to see a throwback concert: John Tesh. This reporter/musician/performer hit his prime in the 1980s (when I was learning to walk), but is still kicking it on stage.My parents were around during his big Entertainment Tonight days and had a blast seeing him rock out 20+ years later.They also were great double date company!
And that’s a wrap.
- What was the last concert you saw?
- Favorite Thai dish?
- If you opened a restaurant, what type of restaurant would it be?
