Bangkok 54

Had dinner the other night with Mike and Arlene Roberts, from Denver. Mike is a custom home builder and Arlene is an elementary school teacher in Denver Public Schools. We ate at Bangkok 54, web site, 2919 Columbia Pike, Arlington, VA, 703-521-4070 [TCEDG | Washingtonian | WaPo | City Paper | Don Rockwell | openlist | Yelp | Gayot]

The only dish we tried that was so-so, and is not pictured, was the Tum Yum soup with shrimp. The shrimp was good, but the broth was very heavy and a bit greasy, not anything like the delicate Tum Yum soups we have had elsewhere.

Fried Soft Shell Crabs
The Fried Soft Shell Crabs were very good

Penang
Penang, curry chicken, was excellent

Pad Cha from the Sea

Mango Sticky Rice
The Mango Sticky Rice dessert is one of the few desserts worth trying in an Asian restaurant (the other is the ABC in a Malaysian or some Thai places)
