Back before I knew what real Thai food was, there was this restaurant that my friends and I used to go to back in college all the time called “Exotic Thai.”  And while totally NOT real Thai (Penang is actually in Malaysia but I guarantee you it’s not real Malaysian either), it was tasty and was my first real exposure to curries and coconut flavors in food.

This dish kind of reminded me of those same flavors I first found to be so fascinating, except that this dish is arguably LEAGUES better.
