My high school friend, Monica, took me to Thai Village in Princeton, NJ. I have a special connection with Princeton because I spent three years living as a boarder at The Hun School of Princeton and loved every minute of this quaint university town. Since I last lived there, Princeton has become very global and very Asian. I lost count of the Asian restaurants on Nassau Street. Thai Village is the favorite Thai place for Monica. It’s a no-nonsense, looks like a take out joint but is also a sit down place, restaurant. The conversations surrounding us included one on technology startup infrastructure and one on pharmaceutical clinical trial. Monica and I chatted about her photography business, MK Photography, and the pleasure in creating beautiful images. For her, it’s the headshots. For me, it’s the food, nature, far away places, and people.See Me: Crispy egg noodles topped with brown gravy and cooked with shrimps, bamboo shoots, scallions, and straw mushrooms. I ordered this dish largely because of its name. I want you to SEE ME! Chicken with red curry and coconut milk.
The food was fresh and tasty. No complaints for a $20 meal for two. It’s even better by the simple fact that there is a free parking lot attached to the restaurant. Of course, love from a long time friend is definitely priceless. If I lived in Princeton, I would frequent the place.
