Here we are, the one review I couldn't wait to write. Or, I guess I should say: eat.Khun Pic's Bhan Thai
3429 SE Belmont 97214
This place is extremely hard to find, if you don't know it is there. It is literally a hidden gem - an old PDX Victorian on Belmont street, nestled between a vacant lot and a vintage storefront, shrouded behind the privacy of a fig tree garden.... The only give away that you are at the right address is the scent of curried coconut milk dancing in the air.
There are a few things you should know about this place. If you don't know these things, you can act in a totally inappropriate manner at Khun Pic's Bhan Thai. And you don't want to do that, do you? No one wants to be inappropriate.
1. This is just some Dudes house. Well, some Dude and his wife.
2. You are eating in this families living room. In front of their fire place. Or in their front yard. Act like you were invited over to dinner. Be polite.
3. This Dude is your server. He is the only server.
4. This Dude's wife (Ms. Khun Pic) is the chef. The only chef. And she is cooking in her very own kitchen.
5. Please, take #3 and #4 into account when you sit down to eat and see 8 other couples around you.
6. If you had to cook (from
scratch) authentic Thai cuisine for 8 couples who all ordered at the same (relatively) time, it might take you a little longer than 7 line cooks, no?
7. And, if you had to wait on 8 couples who all sat down at the same time, it might take you a little longer than expected to get water over to couple #5, right?
So, do not go here with small children. Do not go here with an impatient woman. Do not go here with a super hungry starving famished belly man. You're gonna have to be patient. And, believe me, its more than worth the little wait. So, order an appetizer and suck it up when its 40 minutes later and you want your entree NOW. Its on its way.
*We went to this place 2 times before we actually sat down to eat here. The Dude greeted us the first 2 times at the door, stressed as all get out, sweating and said "its really busy, it could be 2 hours before you get your meal" so we left. We appreciated the honestly, and the integrity/authenticity of the food, and came back when at more appropriate times. Like, a Thursday night around 6:30 rather than Friday at 8:00.
We sat outside this time, under the fig trees. There were a few other couples on the patio with us, chatting away. Lights in the trees, great atmosphere. And wicked quiet for being right on Belmont.
What we ordered: Veggie Spring Rolls, Spicy Fried Rice with Prawns, Veggies in Green Curry Sauce (with white rice). Our entrees were both served with "Medium" spiciness. The Dude acts out each level of spice for you when you order, so you can pick appropriately. "Medium" was a nose tickle. "Medium-Hot" was a sweat-wipe of the forehead. We stuck with the tickle.
I timed the Spring Rolls. 10 minutes. Score.
These things are to die for. Seriously. Perfectly fresh. The peanut sauce was so good Chris and I actually used our fingers to clean the serving bowl. We may be in someones home
(and we were very polite) but we did use our fingers. Sorry momma.
40 minutes after that our entrees showed up. I thought the portions looked small at first, but no. This lady knows what she is doing. They were spot on. And it was all amazing. Really, fresh, spicy, full of herbs, flavor to last a month.... I am actually going to let the pictures speak for themselves [Mister: add away!!]
....To be truthful, I was really sad about a couple of things. Like I said, this was the one review I was waiting to write/eat. We had a fantastic experience the first time and I couldn't wait to go back. The flavor was great again, the atmosphere, the service - all stellar. Disappointingly, though.... My water cup was dirty. Covered in lipstick. And Dude was so busy attending to us all that I didn't ask for another water glass. I am sure he would have been seriously apologetic, but he just is so flusteredly-busy! I just drank from
the Misters water glass. Also, in our fried rice we found a hair. A very very long hair. So long that after we removed it Chris almost inadvertently ate it (again) because, while being off of the plate, it managed to be long enough to remain ON the plate. We got passed that. We ate the whole dish. But still. No bueno. Again, we didn't mention it to Dude. He probably would have given us money off the tab, but we felt it was all okay. It make me sad just to think about it, I wanted to come here and RAVE about how good the food was (and it WAS) but these 2 things sucked a bit.
Anyhow. Total tally: $44.00. And, despite the lipstick and the hair we left a humongo tip. They are an amazing team those two. As we were leaving some crabby woman who didn't read the warning on top of the menu about wait time was complaining to Dude about how long it took for her to get her soup (maybe 20 minutes) (she was sooo hungry!!
China Beach Carmel
The mid week weather has been fantastic here in California. I spent a random weekday in the Carmel Valley hiking in the hills at Garland Ranch. I made the decision to drive down from
Santa Cruz at six am and got on the road by seven. My efforts were not wasted as I pulled up to park at the entrance to the Saddle Trail and hiked up four miles and 1500 feet to the top of the trail. The sun was hot but the shade from
the trees made is less painful. i stopped often and drank from
my new camelback so I was fine. The backpack was full of water and camera gear that tipped the scales at twenty pounds. I was glad when I hit the top and walked downhill to this pond. I was amazed to see the entire surface covered in a bright red mat of organic material. The ducks were walking rather than paddling.
I have been here before when the reflective qualities of the water were more pleasing. The oak trees were nice and I set up the tripod to take the cleanest shot possible. I was glad I chose the steep climb first so that the rest of the trail was mostly downhill to the Creek below. I spent the next three hours hiking and stopping to take pictures. i only passed one couple on the way down. The rest of the hike was solitary and peaceful as I walked down through the purple flowers and saw many birds and insects.
Once I had reached the shade and comfort of the creek I stopped and shot from
the edge and then from several temporary bridges that crossed the water five different times. I was thrilled with the water rapids shots that I took and the tripod was an absolute must.
Once I had finished the hike and made it back to the truck, I decided to eat lunch and then I parked on Highway One outside Point Lobos Park In Carmel, and rode my bike in a couple miles to the ocean and spent the last of the day shooting China Beach and soaking in more sun than I really needed. My legs were getting tired by now and I road back to the truck to drive home
and take a long nap. Sometimes my ambitious nature extends beyond my aging body.
The overhead sun is not the best for dramatic side lighting, but the sand bottom lights up perfect and the clear water allow the greens and blues to shine through.
