Know Your Onions

‘Tis the season for sprouts

Onions can be tricky to grow, which is why a farmer's onions have long been considered a litmus test for agricultural skill. Hence the expression, "he knows his onions," which is like saying, "he knows the ropes." Knowing one's onions in a literal sense is a great thing to aspire to, and this applies as much in the kitchen as it does in the garden.

Chowtown Restaurant Guide

At some point down the line Thai food became synonymous with comfort food for me. It was my family’s favorite dining out cuisine when I was young, and now I have a lot of good nostalgia wrapped up in the smell of lemongrass and curry. Tom kha gai, papaya salad and pad see ew are my go-to orders when I’m sick or just craving something warming and familiar, so I’ve visited most of the Thai spots in town to find some of my favorites of each. That GrubHub bill is getting a little out of control at this point, honestly.

Here’s a few of my favorite spots to order Thai in the Duke City. May they bring you many spicy tears and great evenings.
