    About Time for a Chinese

Coco Thai a lounge with a view

A good thing about Caracas is that you can find any type of cuisine you want, and the execution is quite good. So one of my stops this time was for Thai cuisine, Mary’s favourite have to say Coco Thai & Lounge. The place is in the Tolon Fashion Mall, quite famous for the gastronomic movement due to a dedicated floor to restaurants (5th floor). Typical Asian decoration and a terrace with an excellent view of the Avila. Menu is basically Thai with some additions of other Asian cuisines, mainly Japanese rolls, and a good cocktail list. 

We decided to share different dishes and mainly sushi rolls, so we went for a tempura salmon (Coquitos de Salmon), an special wakame salad, and then three different sushi  rolls Alaska special, Spicy Tuna, and a Tempura one.

The food was excellent, the coquitos were great, salmon with cream cheese tempura was superb, with a drizzle of a sweet mustard sauce just excellent, the wakame special salad was the best dish of the night, light and tasty, with tempura shrimp and octopus, just awesome. Sushi rolls were perfectly executed, which is pretty standard for Caracas, but this ones where definitely spot on. Alaska special, quite good, salmon, avocado, and cream cheese, with salmon eggs, excellent, then the spicy tuna quite good, and finally a shrimp tempura with cream cheese and crab, nice flavours.

Thailand remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Bookstore” 

Peterman: Elaine, do you have a moment? It's about your lover 
Elaine: Oh yes. I know all about his little performance in the break room 
Peterman: Elaine, who among us hasn't snuck into the break room to nibble on a love Newton? 
Elaine: Love newton? 
Peterman: I'm afraid the problem with Zach is more serious. He's back on the horse, Elaine. Smack. White palace. The Chinaman's nightcap 
Elaine: An addict? Well, it just keeps getting better! 
Peterman: And, in a tiny way, I almost feel responsible. I'm the one who sent him to Thailand in search of low-cost whistles. Filled his head with pseudoerotic tales of my own Opium excursions. Plus, I have him some phone numbers of places he could score near the hotel 
Elaine: Look, uh, Mr. Peterman, the fact is that I was planning on breaking up with Zach anyway. He was cheating on me! 
Peterman: Damn it, Elaine. That wasn't Zach. That was the yam-yam. Now, he is going cold turkey, and you will be at his side 
Elaine: Oh. Well, you know, I had planned to uh… 
Peterman: No buts, Elaine. Or I will strip you of your associate status. Uh, P.S., the first twenty-four hours are the worst, better bring a poncho
