Thai Spice - Oakland Park, FL

 
I had been to Thai Spice once many years ago. I don't really recall my experience good or bad, but still ended up here again anyways. The restaurant has an odd location in a shopping center, but a very warm, inviting and appealing atmosphere on the inside.

At the recommendation of our server (who was very friendly by the way) I ordered the Chang's Mai Tai as a drink. 
 

We also ordered the Steamed Dumplings to curb our appetite.
 

The restaurant was extreme dark which made it difficult to see the menus, but the hostess passing by our table noticed and gave us candles to illuminate the menus a little bit. With more of the ability to see I was able to order and select the Long Island Crispy Duck with Tamarind Sauce. It was extremely good (had a little to much sauce though). The duck was perfectly cooked.
 

My fiancé had the Whole Fried Yellowtail Fish with Sweet and Sour sauce. He devoured the fish like it was his last meal.
 

It is safe to say Thai Spice is a reliable restaurant with very friendly staff and a great place for an appetizing and fulfilling meal.

Product Review: Andovia's Natural Daily Moisturizer Cream


Before saying anything else about this product, just know that this is another fabulous  product from the Adovia skincare line. Most creams are very heavy that on the days that I wear makeup, my makeup feels like it is melting off my face by mid day and even on the days I don't, in this Miami heat, I feel like my face is greaseball by noon. However, with Andovia's Natural Daily Moisturizer Cream it is just so light and creamy on my skin. I am so happy to finally have found a moisturizer for my face that provides a great primer for my makeup.
 
For more information and to purchase.



I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
