Indochine

Hello Fellow Fashionable Foodies!!! ;)


I was so happy when my good friend Krystle came to town for a few days this week!  We decided to meet up with for lunch and I thought going to this urban-chic Thai restaurant downtown would be perfect for lunch!  It's called Indochine.

I absolutely loved the ambiance of this place.  It's just the swankiest little Thai restaurant you'll ever want to eat in.  I love the entrance to the restaurant, the exposed brick inside of the restaurant, and all of the Buddhist inspired art showcased through out the space.
The food was pretty good!  For starters we got the following:
Crab Rangoons:  I ordered these and while the curried cream cheese added great flavor , I didn't taste a bit of crab.  I even opened one of them up on a mad search for crab and was  disappointed when I found none.

Crispy Rolls:  These were rolls stuffed with ground pork, mushrooms, mung bean noodles, onion, cabbage, and carrots, fried to a perfect crisp, and were the BOMB DIGGITY!!!

Steamed Dumpling:  I didn't taste these but Krystle's BF said they were pretty good.
For my main dish, I had the Shrimp and Chicken Pad Thai.  It was my first time trying Pad Thai and though I'm not the biggest fan of peanut, the peanut undertones were subtle and it had a tolerable amount of spice, making for a pretty tasty dish!  I love how you can determine the level of spice you want using a scale from 1F-6F with 6 being the hottest!  I ordered this dish at a 3F and it had the right amount of "kick" for me.

This was the Mee Krob which came with bok choy, chicken, veggies, served over fried crispy rice noodles. the broth in this dish was amazing!
 This beef fried rice was good but there was nothing extraordinary about it,

Overall, my experience at Indochine was good!  Although I had the hiccup with my rangoons appetizers, everything else made up for it.  The space was inviting, the service was good, and the food was tasty!  I would definitely go back the next time I'm downtown and want a good bite to eat!

Talk to you all soon!

  1. All these pictures make this place look absolutely scrumptious! Especially that Mee Krob and that fried rice (I'm a huge rice eater). Funny thing, I order crab rangoons at every chinese restaurant I go to (haven't been to a tai one yet) and they are so delicious but I never taste crab either. haha Either way, I'm still addicted to them.
    P.s. I have a giveaway going on if you want to enter! :)
