Indochine Restaurant - Lusciousness Abounds, So Does my Stomach

Last night, to celebrate her 31st wedding anniversary, my husband and I let me mom treat us to a Thai dinner at this amazing place called Indochine. And we feasted!

Check out the menu on the link here.

We started with a delicious appetizer sampler, filled with several things I can't pronounce and 5 delicious dipping sauces, pictured below. Yum + Variety = What more could you want?!

And next, because no one would believe me that we should share entrees, we ordered enough food to find 12 people...for the 3 of us. We will be having leftover Thai for lunch and sensible snacks for the rest of the week. The doggy bag alone probably weighed 10 pounds.

Even though I'm a total newbie to Wilmington, I am going to go ahead and say I know enough to recommend this place to anyone. The inside of the restaurant is great, very Thai/Vietnamese inspired. But the back of the restaurant is awesome sauce. You can get your own personal little Tiki huts to eat in. I've been told this is most luscious during the Spring or Fall when you won't be dripping sweat into your Moo Goo Gai Pan.

Try this place! It was truly amazing service, excellent food, and good company. Just trust me when I say that sharing an entree is still more than enough food for two people. Despite how un-fun that may sound to begin with, I promise you'll be able to breath much better if you share.
