Corn Cakes and Tofu at Neecha
Although I really not big on fried foods, the corn cakes above, from Neecha, a Thai restaurant in San Francisco, were quite the tasty treat. Corn kernels with a wonderful spice/herb flavor I couldn't identify, fried in a batter until very crispy. Believe me, these corn cakes have crunch!
This tofu dish was also something "completely different" for me. Deep fried puffy tofu, with a lightly dusted affect, in a sweet sticky chili sauce with carmelized onions and basil. Very different, this dish literally shined.
Neecha offers lots of vegetarian dishes. I also tried the vegetarian satay with peanut sauce and po pia. Everything was good.
