Araya's Place and University District

Some friends and I met up for dinner at Araya's Place, a vegan Thai restaurant in Seattle. I'm not vegan, but the food was really good! One of my friends ordered Tom Kah soup. It has mushrooms and lemon (I think.) I had a small bowl of it.

I ordered Panang Curry with brown rice. A former roommate turned me onto Panang curry and since then I've had a jar of it in my fridge but this was so much better!

And I had enough to take home and eat the next day for lunch!

After dinner two of us went to University Village.

We grabbed drinks at Elemental Pizza; I had a virgin EMP, which was a mojito, and she had what was called a Rain Drop, and was basically a Lemon Drop. Both drinks were great.

Here's my EMP.

And I thought that the sign for the bar was clever.

We walked around, went to Anthropologie, J. Crew, Fran's Chocolates, and so many other places. I love University Village. One of these days when I've got more time (and more spending money) I'm definitely going to go back!

Have you tried any new restaurants lately?
