Who doesn't like fondue right? So a few months ago I brought the groupon to Capstone, and I finally used it a few days ago. It wasn't my first time at Capstone, but I hadn't been there in a while, so it was a good opportunity to see if much has changed. The groupon itself was $25 and that included two personal cheese and chocolate fondues. Since the last time I've been there it doesn't seem much has changed, although the portions may have gotten smaller with the introduction of the personal sizes. Anyways here's a snapshot of the food and place.

Sawasdee Thai Restaurant

A few days ago I went to a Thai Restaurant called Sawasdee. This was my second time visiting the place, and since I was in the area I decided to go there again. The restaurant is located on 4250 Main St.(near 27th) in Vancouver. Although the exterior and the interior does not showcase anything spectacular or special, the food speaks for itself. I would say it is one of the best authentic Thai places in the lower mainland.

I ordered three dishes:
1. Tod Mun Pla
 Deep fried shrimp cakes

2. Pad Ped Gai
Chicken in Thai sweet and sour sauce

3. Pad Thai
Stir fired noodles and prawns (Tamarind sauce) 

The pictures kind of suck, but I can reassure you that it looks much better and taste much better in real life.
Most items on the menu allow you to choose the intensity of heat, which ranges from mild, medium, hot, very hot. I went for the medium option. They also have their house made hot sauce, which is also really good.

So go give the place a try and let me know what you think. =)
