Haw Mok at Thailand Cafe

Tonight I had dinner at Thailand Cafe in the East Village.  I love Thai food, but sometimes I get into a rut of always ordering the usual favorites: Pad Thai and Green Curry.  This time, one of the specials, the Haw Mok (Fish Custard Curry) caught my attention.  The dish contains fish, coconut milk, and red curry, egg and Chinese cabbage – a sublime balance of light fish custard and fiery curry, made complete with a small of rice.  This may be my latest culinary obsession.  At only 11 dollars total, including tax and tip, it couldn't get any better!

Here are some recipes for Haw Mok that I found online:
