gaigaithai In our previous and current commercial kitchen there's been another business that makes donuts. It's kinda a problem... and it's even worse when they hand out samples. Just awful. :) Anyhow, have a good weekend and we'll see y'all -- rain or shine -- Saturday at Bloomington and Sunday at Kingfield! 4w

gaigaithai I'd always been curious about this Malaysian eatery down in the AV, so B and I stopped in prior to a paint run to the big orange home repair store. Mee Goreng, lemongrass wings and roast pork, red bean and kaya buns. There's also Japanese and Korean on the menu, perhaps reflecting the economic realities of trying to do a less-known Asian cuisine in the 'burbs. Still, the noodles are good, the tasty kaya buns are as close as we've come to our fave sankaya bun store in Udorn in awhile, and the polite, and ummm, young man running the counter has some mad front-of-the-house skills. 4w
  •   bahertz Where is dis? 4w
  •   gaigaithai Down the Cedar/77 speedway in Apple Valley. @bahertz 4w
  •   aliciacyt That's Hokkien noodles :) 4w
  •   bkkfatty Sounds like a solid find and if B approves, it must be good! 4w
  •   hellogrobe Right by my old house! 4w
  •   kaminiq Yes, definitely more like hokkien noodles but delicious nonetheless! I LOVE their buns. My fave is the milk cream bun. I've been told the curry puff is good and spicy. 4w

gaigaithai We'd been craving these bop bowls -- with bulgogi and pork belly (cuz this Gai doesn't Prep on veggies along) -- from @thelefthandedrabbit. Thx, y'all! 1mon

gaigaithai Much thanks to food critic Rick Nelson for including us in @startribune's "Taste 50: A celebration of Minnesota farmers markets." Above is a shot of @swamim and @bwin1222 doing what they do best and below is the article text. Thx to y'all for all your support and have great weekend! [One of the Twin Cities’ more adventurous Thai restaurants technically isn’t a restaurant, it’s a farmers market stand. Gai Gai Thai owner Kris Petcharawises pulls together an always impressive array of lively stand-up fare (the breakfast bowls are first-rate), frequently putting a Thai gloss on Midwestern ingredients, purchased from neighboring vendors. Thirsty? There’s also a refreshing lime- and lemongrass-flavored Thai iced tea, Petcharawises’ clever spin on the Arnie Palmer. Above, cook David Anderson worked the Gai Gai Thai stove at the Kingfield Farmers Market. (Bloomington, and others)] 1mon

gaigaithai Thx for Rearn Thai Market for the fresh supply of local Thai chilies! We'll be putting these to good use, slinging drunken noodles before, during and after today's televised USA-Ghana World Cup match, 5 to 8 at Nomad World Pub. #USAUSAUSA 1mon

gaigaithai Good morning! A wee bit cloudy but it still looks like it could be a "berry" nice day here in Bloomington. 1mon
  •   chefracer Wow they look amazing. 1mon
  •   phatphood What's the location exactly? 1mon
  •   gaigaithai Old shakopee rd and 98th st in Bloomington . @phatphood come on down! 1mon
  •   phatphood I was about to...until it started raining 1mon
  •   gaigaithai We, as in the whole market, bailed at 11:30. We generally like having our noodle and breakfast bowls flying off the shelves... But the wind was a bit much today. Next time! @phatphood 1mon

gaigaithai Pretty stoked about B's latest milestone. Endured a couple of years of disappointment, but today he absolutely SMASHED the height requirement for the kids' play area at the little Swedish furniture store. Skol, Bodhi! 2mon

gaigaithai Locally, it feels like Thailand in February and that's all the reason we need to make more Thaiger Woods -- our version of the Arnie Palmer, with sweetened Thai iced tea, fresh-squeezed lime and a hint of lemongrass -- for tomorrow at Kingfield. Stay cool and see y'all there! 2mon
