As the Christmas season rolls in, I can't help but notice that the Starbucks Christmas drinks are back! I'm definitely glad my favourite Toffee Nut Latte has made the cut. Though I do mourn the demise of Dark Cherry Mocha. Having one of those drinks really makes Christmas a little bit more real for me. Can you believe that it's only a little more than a week to Christmas? How are you spending it this time round? It's going to be a lot of cosy home gatherings for me - just good company and good food!

Back when I spent the summer in Hong Kong last year, I fell in love with a cosy and unpretentious Thai Restaurant along Wan Chai. My favourite was always their Beef Brisket Thai Green Curry. I loved how they served up generous portions of chunky and slightly chewy beef brisket that were soaked in all the green curry goodness. I have to say, Nakhon Kitchen's version is pretty darn tasty as well, though the curry is on the thin side and they certainly don't serve up beef brisket. This time round, we opted to try their Thai Prawn Cakes, which cost twice as much as their Thai Fish Cakes. It was delicious, for sure, with an addictive, almost pungent prawn flavour. But it really wasn't twice as delicious. And somehow, I actually like their Thai Fish Cakes better. I'll go back to those the next time.

We tried their seafood fried rice for the first time too and liked it a lot. It was highly tasty and came with crunchy prawns, thick fish slices and quite a few slices of squid. Overall, the meal didn't disappoint. Nakhon Kitchen is most certainly still the place I'd go to for authentic and budget Thai food!
