New Year’s Eve is a traditional takeaway night for us. Who wants to pay 5 quid to get in to a pub that is free to enter on 364 days of the year? So it’s an easy night in, no cooking, and the drink of your choice. And no queue to get to the bar. And no drunken idiots yelling in your ear.
For most of the last 15 years, we’ve been opting for a Chinese takeaway, but in the last couple of years, we have switched allegiances to Thai. As usual over the festive period, Doi Intanon was closed, so it was off to Jintana, our Thai of choice for New Year’s Eve. Mr Predictable strikes again – a starter of chicken satay with peanut chilli sauce and a chicken mussaman curry:-
The mussaman is probably one of the most consistent curries across different venues, with meat, potato, carrot, onion and peanuts almost always present. Jintana’s mussaman is a good one, with a nice hint of chilli.
One other item of note, the last beer of 2015, this Bibble from The Wild Beer Co – a fruity pale ale that cans well, and a very tasty way to finish off a year of lovely beers…
Happy new year!
