It was a sunny day today and the weather was not as cold as the past few days. So, three of us decided to have our lunch at Hot Basil Thai Cottage in Margaret Street, since we alr6eady get bored with the food in Grand Central's food court.

This Thai restaurant offers a wonderful atmosphere for you to relax while enjoying the dishes.

At last, we get to taste some "original" Tom Yam Goong in Toowoomba.

The traditional Panang Chicken contains less coconut milk, chicken pieces, lemon grass, Panang curry paste, palm sugar, and fish sauce. The ingredients used are pretty much similar to the Red Curry.

The coconut rice smelled and tasted really good.
