BackstoryHeidi as promised here is a simple but very tasty Thai dish. Kathie and I were introduced to Thai food in the early 1980s because of an article in Los Angeles Magazine. One of the first Thai restaurants we visited in Los Angeles was Bangkok I on Melrose Avenue. A small place with excellent food and friendly service
