Restaurant Review: Farmhouse Thai Kitchen

I love eating out and and checking out new restaurants, but shelter-in-place has really put a damper on that. I’m not much of a take out fan so I’ve been eating at home a lot lately (and it also doesn’t hurt that my mom cooks well). My mom’s birthday was coming up and I didn’t want her to cook for herself, but I didn’t want to cook a birthday worthy meal either. After randomly scrolling through Instagram, I came across pictures of the Little Lao Table at Farmhouse Thai Kitchen and knew that it was going to be the perfect solution.

This platter was so worth $59.99. First of all, the presentation was impressive and colorful. Second, all the food was delicious! There was so much variety and so much flavor and I was super happy the whole time I was eating. Regardless if you’re too lazy to cook or not, I would recommend ordering this platter (take out only obviously) as it was affordable (we were able to feed around 4 people even though it’s meant for 2) and delicious!
