Lemon Grass Chicken

I started with an order of the Bangkok Ravioli as an appetizer at Racha Thai in Worcester. They came as a serving of six, plenty to share with another person, with a sweet soy sauce. The ravioli themselves were filled with chicken and some minced vegetables, pressed into a crescent dumpling, very lightly battered and fried…

Thai Place Duck

To my mind, there are two types of restaurant experiences. Some restaurants experiences are purely functional. There are times when you simply need food to satisfy your hunger.

Because I try to avoid carbohydrates I opted for the, “Fisherman’s Basket,” which according to the menu consisted of a variety of steamed seafood and vegetables, seasoned with “Thai exotic spices.”   The visual presentation was actually pretty cool — it was served…
