I am a huge fan of taro, a starchy root vegetable with a hint of sweetness and is used often in Asian desserts. Luckily, R. loves it too, so we started our meal with a delicious Taro Bubble Drink to share which I didn't get a good shot of, but it was tasty.
For my entree, as per usual, I selected a curry. This time, I decided to try the Penang Curry with Pork. It was rich and flavorful and everything a girl could hope for in a curry.

R. went for the Queen Tilapia, served with mangos, Thai basil, green bell peppers, an onions, in a sweet and sour sauce. Even though I really like curry, and the Penang Curry was excellent, I'd have to concede that R. made the better choice. Everything was just perfect about this dish: the fish perfectly cooked, the sauce perfectly balanced between sweet and sour. I can't believe what I'm about to say, but I actually liked the Queen Tilapia better than curry!

We saved room for dessert, of course. My memory is a bit fuzzy now, as I'm not quite sure who ordered the Coconut Mango Ice Cream. I do remember ordering the Taro Custard (because I just had to have everything taro on the menu!), and it was excellent, even if it was more like a cake than a custard consistency.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Green Mango is truly a great spot for Thai food out in the eastern suburbs!
