Essay VS. Osha Thai? Yea right, Osha Thai Wins!
In SF, it is rare to find a swanky lounge/restaurant that has an affordable menu. Thankfully, I discovered Osha Thai a couple of years ago.
Last saturday, I took Lu with me to get some happy hour drinks and eats before meeting up with some other friends. We were working at our day job earlier in the day and I basically had to convince her to forget about her essay and come frolick in the city with me. We went to the lounge on Embarcadero. I love the convenient parking garage. It’s a bitch to find parking in the city. The happy hour menu is amazing. Seven dollar special cocktails!??! Count me in. We started with the lychee martini. Deliciously light and fruity, this martini even came with a magenta orchid floating atop.
Girl Talk about
We ended up having some girl talk about boys. Correction, Men. Lu has a boyfriend, and I am the single one. She basically mentors me, and I go in the complete opposite direction. Once you get to know us a little bit in our future posts, you know that our dynamic personalities mesh together but our dating patterns? A complete opposite. She is my Marshall, and I am her Ted Mosby. She may be my Barney Stinson, minus all the sexcapades.
Anyways, we ended up getting a bit buzzed and I got a bit irate at the conversation about men so we ordered some Pad Thai w/chicken and Volcanic Beef. And another drink. I forgot what it’s called, but it was delicious. It had four types of liquor in it, and it was reddish?? I don’t remember. If you ask the bartender, just say, “it has 4 types of liquor, and these two asian chicks had it and said it was delish” Note to foodie: If you ever go to an Osha Thai, order the Volcanic beef. The meet is tender and the sauce is perfect.
After hopping into my jeep wrangler (I gotta name it something, maybe Dundee?), we were well satisfied with our visit to Osha. We ended up venturing off to other places. But that’s all secret for now. Until next time. ;)
