(jamjuree.com) – Capital Hill
How I heard of this place: While I’m confident I have heard of Jamjuree before, and may have even sampled the Thai cuisine in this north Capital Hill establishment in the past, this trip was recommended by my friend Tahirih on a whim and a craving for red curry.
Type of cuisine: Thai cuisine. Thai food prepared with slightly less kick for the American palate.
Ambiance: Dark interior furnishings in an open space with chairs and tables to both sides of the entrance hall. A small bar is also available as seating for the lone diner. Minimal ornate Thai decorations grace the space. It is comfortable and family friendly.
What I ordered: Having had dinner just two hours prior to meeting up with my friend, I opted for the seasonal special white sticky rice with fresh mango ($6.50) and dusted with sesame seeds. My dining companion started with a Thai iced tea ($2.50) and an order of the spring rolls ($6.50) – crispy stuffed vegetable rolls served with sweet & sour sauce. For her main course, my dining companion ordered the Plik King ($8.25) – tofu with red curry paste, green beans, basil, and lime leaves and a side of red rice.
What I loved: Most of all, in the bites I sampled, the favorite was the red curry stir-fry with fresh, crisp green beans and steamed tofu. My dining companion was very pleasantly surprised by the delicious sweet sticky rice. Both of us were blown away the perfectly ripe, gorgeous, succulent, pre-sliced mango!
Why I loved it: The service was friendly and quick. The food full of flavor and the company priceless.
Cost: Low to average ($8-$10 for dinner entrees)
