Downtown Mtn. View eats

Boyfriend and I went on our first dinner date since we moved to NorCal last Friday night. Numerous people told me that Castro St. has plenty of great restaurants so we parked at one end and walked down the street while we tried to decide where to eat. I wasn’t craving anything in particular and almost everything sounded good! The weather was perfect for a stroll and we were able to burn off some of the calories after dinner when we walked back to the car. 🙂

Amarin has been voted the Best Thai Restaurant in Mountain View for the past five (or so) consecutive years so we took a table on the sidewalk and ate here.

I chose the Thai crispy noodles (mee-grob) because they sounded interesting and I had never had anything like them.  They were tossed with sweet and sour sauce and served with shrimp and tofu.  They were so good and really filling for an appetizer!

We went with chicken green curry with sticky rice.  It had a nice kick to it but wasn’t too spicy.

Boyfriend’s excellent choice was the Tamarind prawns with snap peas and cashews.  They tasted like they had just come off the grill.  The only downside was that they were incredibly difficult to peel off from the shell.

I loved Castro St. and the neighborhood around it. 🙂  Boyfriend really liked this restaurant and I have a feeling we’ll be back again in the future.

    I really like Thai food. The green curry really hit the spot to curb the cravings. It was all really delicious. The shells were a bit difficult to peel off the prawns, but minus that it was an excellent meal. The outside area wasn’t too busy when we first got there, but by the time we left it was packed. I’m sure we’ll be back to Castro street to try some other restaurants but I’m sure we’ll be visiting this restaurant again.
