Crying Tiger Steak

Meat Me at Home

Most Thai restaurants stick to a pretty formulaic menu structure—there's the rice, noodles, or curry with choice of meat I would wager the majority of people order off of, then the specialities. Those specialities almost always sound the most interesting (to me anyway), but also fetch a higher price, making them feel like a splurge from the normal Thai night out. It was on one of those evenings I felt like shaking things up and ordered off of the specialities that I discovered Crying Tiger Steak, and it's since become hard for me not order it whenever I see it. It's a pretty simple dish—grilled steak with a spicy chili dipping sauce—but so good that it's totally worthy of the extra spend on an regular basis.

Meat Me at Home

I'm a homebody by nature, and The Meatwave is a reflection of that—I prefer to stay at home, cook, and have friends come to me rather than go out. Likewise, my sense of home is strong, making me one not apt to move around, so the fact that this Meatwave represented its second home in less than a year is kind of a big deal for me. The good news behind all the moving is that this is hopefully The Meatwave's forever home, and what better way to warm it than with tons of grilled goodies!

Grilled Bok Choy with Honey-soy Dressing

So I'm always on the hunt for grilled accompaniments that can be cooked up super quick, say in the time it takes for a piece of steak, chicken, or pork to rest before serving. This grilled bok choy is designed to do just that, and besides being fast, it's also dead simple and really delicious with the equally easy honey-soy dressing.
