Thai Spices on Instagram



There's a Thai restaurant close to my workplace and I go there a couple times a month for lunch. The food is oh-so-yummy, and I crave it if it's been too long since my last visit! And with the exception of one time when my friend Barbara joined me for lunch, I dine there alone.

I love that the sweet server knows my regular order and doesn't even bother to bring me a menu. It's a shame that I've dined there so many times and not asked what her name is! I'll remedy that next time.*

Anyway! When I go to Thai Spices I always take a photo and Instagram it. It's become a semi-regular feature in my Instagram feed, and many times I'll tag Barbara saying I wish she was there with me. And I joke about it myself as I post yet another photo from that same restaurant, while my blog friend Ginger plays it up like she misses it if I don't Instagram Thai Spices for a while.

I love that my nieces and nephews follow my Instagram feed, and I laughed last weekend while we were in California when my 17-year old nephew randomly mentioned it. He put his arm around me and lifted his chin up a bit as he mockingly said, "You at Thai Spices, Aunt Deb?" Haha. I love that kid.

And I love Thai Spices Restaurant and the little gal who serves me there.
I order Pad Kee Mow every time. Mild. And a glass of water.
Mmmmm, I'm in the mood for some Thai food now.
Thai Spices, coming soon to Instagram...

They must be thrilled to have such a happy, regular customer! I cannot believe their prices - you would pay double that over here. It all sounds delicious, enjoy!

Never been but there is one close by so now I may have to stop in. Looks yummy!

Ginger said...

Those photos together make a lovely collage Deb!

If I EVER come to Phoenix I'm meeting you at Thai Spices!!

What a great montage - they should get you to design and write teir promotional material :). It's quite nice having a regular place you like to eat in, isn't it!

Whenever I see your Thai Spices posts on Instagram, I always immediately start craving Thai. Thanks, Deb! :-)

I always want Thai once you've posted your pics :) How lovely of Anna to give you dessert :)

In answer to Rinda's question, I used SnapWidget to create a free Blogger gadget to get my Instagram feed on my blog's sidebar. You can find that here: http://snapwidget.com/#getstarted

Also, if you Google "How to add Instagram feed to Blogger" you'll see several blog tutorials that others have created. It was actually a very simple process once I put my mind to it. SnapWidget made it easy. :o)

I love Thai food, and your photos are enticing! I love that Anna connected with you after your conversation. I think I see a nice relationship building here.
