Thai food is crazy diverse with awesome, rich flavors that don't need meat. And my favorite Thai food nearby is Song Phi Nong in Houma.
I usually get red curry with tofu. But the other day I was chatting with my seriously tall Australian student and he looked down at me like I'd lost my mind . . . . "Nobody eats that. Try the green curry." But I don't like chunks of eggplant and green peppers . . . . "Try it." OK.
And you know what, the big chunks of eggplant were really good in this coconut milk-based sauce. And he's right, it's a new favorite.
Just one quick piece of advice . . . the spice levels are kinda unpredictable. I'm sort of a big sissy and don't like much spice. And even though I've learned to ask for no spice, it was still so spicy once that I couldn't even eat it. Like sweating, chugging water kind of spicy. So I said something and the waitress was just like, oh OK. I've decided you get what you get.
So I asked the Aussie if he had any trouble with the spice. No. But then again, when you're 6'7", most people know better.
