Taste of Thailand: Komeeda's First Event was a Blast!
WE HAD A BLAST!
Our first event was a great success! We had a full house and we left with full tummies! It took place at Glow Thai Lounge, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. A chic and authentic Thai restaurant with great food and cocktails!
Everyone began to file into the restaurant as I was checking in the attendees. By 7:15, all had a drink in their hand and socializing. People rekindling, making new friends and chatting with the owner and flirting with the bartenders.
At 7:30, everyone seated themselves and we introduced Komeeda, provided some background behind the name and the concept. And then... Chef Suwana of Glow Thai Lounge began serving the Komeaters flavorful & authentic Thai cuisine.
Spring rolls filled with veggies were crunchy and moist on the inside.
Curry puffs were bursting with the most flavorful set of potatoes and peas.
Fish In Garden was colorful, sweet all on top of a crispy Tilapia fillet at the bottom
Glow Thai Wings, were deliciously sweet and spicy
Green Curry; very aromatic and filled with healthy taste. Soaking the jasmine rice in the green curry sauce hit us with a punch of flavor!
And the food service came to a conclusion with the Pad See Ew. Thick noodles, mixed with beef & fresh Thai veggies.
The food service concluded and the Komeaters continued to socialize, cocktails were being concocted, beers being restocked and the tables were clearing up. When the last call was announced, we sensed some disappointment, which was expected.
Everyone shaking hands, hugging and sending their temporary farewells. The rating cards being dropped off and the restaurant finally cleared. Just five minutes ago, that place was filled with energy but the memories are embedded in our heads forever.
From the event; the Komeaters chose the most favorable dish, the CURRY PUFFS (84 points); no surprise to us, but the Green Curry & Pad See Ew were tied for a close second (71 points).
So, if you plan on visiting Glow Thai Lounge in the near future, we highly recommend these dishes. It will be worth your hard earned dollar and your deprived taste buds. Just tell them that Komeeda recommended those dishes to you!

Komeeda was created to introduce a new dining dynamic to foodies and their friends. Komeeda works with restaurants to host events for Komeaters to enjoy and critique a variety of dishes, hang out with friends, meet fellow foodies, and interact with the owners, managers, and chefs of the restaurant – all culminating in a great night of dining.
The goal is to highlight the best of what restaurants have to offer to a hungry, social crowd, and Chef Amatmontri is ready to take your taste buds on a journey through her homeland of Thailand. Glow Thai, which established itself in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, has been serving savory and authentic Southeast Asian food since September 2011. On March 5th, 2014, Chef Amatmontri will be delighting Kom-Eaters with this unique dining experience. A quick look at the menu; and it's easy to see why you should come out to this hot event instead of hibernating.
