After the pub we toddled off down King Street Newtown looking for a feed. Thai was the preference. It wasn't long before we found Thai Pothong. A sign in the window says they've won the award for Sydney's best Thai restaurant for the last 4 years running. That'll do me.
First things first and that is why we knock the top of a Singha, a Thai beer. Jasmine went for coconut juice.
We decided on a selection of entrees. I push for the stuffed chicken wings. The availability of stuffed chicken wings is a 50-50 proposition. Some Thai places serve it and some don't. I grab it when I can get it. I love the crispy wing stuffed with the juicy meaty stuffing. The wings here are very very good.
