On Wednesday me and the OH celebrated 8 years together. What better way to celebrate than to eat our bodyweight in Thai food..
The restaurant of choice was Thaikhun the relatively new Thai restaurant from the creators of Thai fine-dining Chaophraya. Thaikhun concentrates on the busling street food of Bangkok which is emulated in its crazy interior.
We started with a Bangkok street platter – 4 in 1 classics such as Chicken and pork skewers, steamed chicken balls, prawn and chicken wontons with various dips. This was incredibly tasty with great flavours.
Next was some old faithfuls, Thai green curry, Pad Thai and beef in oyster sauce. Each dish was wonderful and although we were very full. Our plates were left squeaky clean.
Although there are a few teething problems, such as a long weight for our main courses and waiters dropping trying to drop off other peoples food/drinks to our table it definitely hasn’t put me off and I will be back again.
To all the people who are moving to University Good Luck! To all the people who are coming to Manchester Congratulations!!
Welcome to the best years of your life. Manchester is such a vibrant, varied city with enough bars, music and shops that you can shake a drunken finger at.
My advice to all your freshers is to really live your life to the full. For many this is the first time you have moved away from home, from your friends and are embarking on a brand new adventure.
Embrace every moment of it, I know myself what an exciting but daunting experience it can be. My word of advice would be – don’t care too much about what other people think. Don’t follow the crowd. If you want to do a certain something then do it! This is the time for you to be who you want to be.
Work hard, play hard and enjoy.
