Nori Thai (St. Pete Beach, FL)

I dined at Nori Thai on Night #2 of my visit to St Pete Beach.  I had been here once before on a previous visit, well before my blogging days, and remembered the food as being very good.  Nori Thai also came highly recommended by a local, so I figured this would be a great place for a solid dinner after a long day.

As is typical of my dining behavior at Thai restaurants (although Nori Thai serves Japanese food as well), I went straight for the curry section of the menu.  I just love Thai curry so much I never seem to want anything else at a Thai restaurant.  Now it is normally hot in Florida in the summer, but there was actually a heat wave going on during my visit (even the locals were complaining about the weather!), so I decided to go for something fruity and ordered the Pineapple Curry with Tofu.  And boy, was it good!  I hadn't been all that hungry when I got to the restaurant, but I finished every last bite of this dish.  Yum yum yum.  And for just $9.95?  Even better.

The mango sticky rice also came highly recommended, so I was going to order it, but alas, they were out.  Too bad.  Well, maybe not so bad news for my waistline, since I had been eating pastries and cake all day leading up to my only proper meal of the day.  I will have to try the mango sticky rice the next time I'm in town though.  Overall, a two thumbs up for Nori Thai!  Reasonable prices, comfy space, friendly service, awesome food - what's not to love?
