Silom 12

I know, usually my posts are about makeup or clothes or something beauty related, but I had to tell you guys about this great restaurant I went to last night.


     For those of you who are fans of thai food and tofu, Silom 12 is the place for you! Before last night, I had never had thai food or any good tofu. The food here was excellent in terms of taste and portion! It is also B.Y.O.B(bring your own bottle)! We had wine and champagne last night. They provide you with wine glass and there is a small charge for them opening your bottle.
But first lets talk about the layout of the place.



     The restaurant is very small, especially at the entrance. If you have a somewhat large party, like we did last night, it is very cramped in the doorway. There are a few tables in the front room as well as a large bar. We did not wait long to be seated, maybe 5 minutes. A woman came to seat us at a long table in the middle of the second room (picture above). The picture was most likely taken during the day because the restaurant is fairly dim. Not too dark and not to light, the perfect setting for a relaxing dinner with friends or a romantic date.  
    They start you off with some free chips and dip. Now this is obviously not your run of the mill chips and dip! The chips look like styrofoam in the shape of a weird flower. The dip looks like some type of dark red preservative.



BUT, don't let it scare you, its actually pretty good. The chips are called Nam prik pao and I'm not sure what the dip is called. The chips are not very salty but still good enough to eat alone. When dipped in the sauce, the sauce is a mix of sweet and spicy!
   After waiting for the rest of our party to arrive everyone ordered. The first little bit I had was some of my friend's noodle dish. The dish is called Paht Woon Sen 

The noodles are glass noodles which are just noodles that are clear. They reminded me of jelly fish tentacles. They are delish! The noodles are cooked in sweet soy sauce which gives it a greasy feel but not too greasy, very flavorful! The noodles are mixed with different veggies, garlic and your choice of chicken, beef, or shrimp. My friend got chicken. The chicken is white meat chicken but very moist and somewhat flavorful. The noodles make up for what the chicken lack in flavor.

The second dish I tasted was the Spaghetti Kimao
I couldn't find a good picture of the dish. The noodles used in this dish were the traditional spaghetti noodles. The noodles are cooked in and covered with a very spicy basil sauce. If you are into spicy things this is the dish for you! However the spiciness doesn't take away from the dish, it is still edible :). Mixed in the noodles are different veggies and seafood. Usually when I see seafood I usually think of shrimp immediately, but this dish goes beyond that! There is shrimp, calamari, and even mussels in this dish. They seem to be cooked in a milder sauce that coats them with an orange sauce that works well with the noodle sauce and makes the seafood taste wonderful!

This dish is super pretty! It literally comes in a pineapple boat. The pineapple is cut in half and scraped out. The leftover pineapple chunks are mixed into the rice. The rice is a traditional friend rice with shrimp. On top of the rice is dried shredded pork. Surprisingly the dried pork isn't so dry it is very flavorful and soft. I expected it to be a bit chewy, but not at all!

The last dish I had, the I actually got as carry out was the Garlic Stir Fry Tofu(called Garlic on the menu)
Now before this dish I had never had any good tofu! It all tasted like dirty paper to me. I decided to try it one more time here. I was pleasantly surprised! The sauce it a dark sweet garlic sauce. The tofu is very moist and is covered with a little rice and garlic sauce. Broccoli and some other veggies came along with the dish as well. I'm not a big fan of the broccoli in this dish only because I like steamed broccoli instead of stir fry. They were a big crunchy but still had loads of yummy flavor! This dish is also in the stir fry part of the menu.

So for those of you here in Chicago, or looking to visit Chicago, and want to try a new resturant, and/or food type you should definitely try Silom 12 in Bucktown

LUSH LUST!

I love Lush! I love Lush! What do you mean you've never heard of it?! Do you live under a rock?! JEESH! Well if you don't know, Lush makes products from fresh organic fruits and veggies. Their products range from bath soaps and bombs to hair products and perfumes. I bought my mom some LUSH products for mothers day a few years ago and we both got hooked! The bath bombs are my favorite because, they are super inexpensive and they smell amazing! When it comes to LUSH products you have never smelled anything like it! Here are just a few products I am loving right now!



 1) R&B- This is a hair treatment that is said to "Revive & Balance Misbehaving Hair". It is a hair moisturizer that helps control fly aways and frizz.  Made from Jojoba Oil, this product is said to work well with African American hair as well as other hair types.
2) Jungle- This is a solid hair conditioner.  Made from kumquats and other fruits to condition and clean your hair. Leaves your hair smelling delicious!
3) Twilight- This is a bath bomb! Its made from tonka beans and lavender oil. It is said to be LUSH's most relaxing bathbomb yet! Great for right before bedtime.
4) Waving Not Drowning-  Another bath bomb! Made from ylang, fennel, and caradamon. This is another great bedtime bomb!

For the bath bombs, if you don't have a tub, well that sucks, but there is another option! Take a big bowl and fill it with warm water and drop a bomb in it before you go to sleep and it will fill your room with an amazing smell!

Love, Robin

I'M A GEM!

GEMINI - The Twin
Nice. Love is one of a kind. Great listeners. Very Good at confusing people… Lover not a fighter, but will still knock you out. Geminis will not take any crap from anyone. Geminis like to tell people what they should do and get offended easily. They are great at losing things and are forgetful. Geminis can be very sarcastic and childish at times and are very nosey. Trustworthy. Always happy. VERY Loud. Talkative. Outgoing. VERY FORGIVING. Loves to make out. Has a beautiful smile. Generous. Strong. THE MOST IRRESISTIBLE. 9 years of bad luck if you do not forward.



Love, Robin

Fashion Rave!

My new fashion rave has been inspired by my friend Ebony. She has a fashion blog, (go check it out! http://daintydiction.blogspot.com/) and a recent post of hers was on the designer Melody Ehsani. She designs jewelry and some shoes. Celebrities like Keri Hilson,Erykah Badu, and Nicki Minaj have worn Melody Eshani jewelry. I visited the site and fell deep in love some some pieces.



This first piece is a necklace called Bite Me
I just love it because of the bold red color and the fangs!













This piece is actually a ring called the Hot Lops 3 Finger Ring
Once again, love the bold red lips and the mouth reminds me of the Rocky Horror Picture Show!










These are earrings. This piece is called See Me. They are sooo cute and colorful. I can't tell exactly what they are but they look like little birds to me!











This final piece is called the Lightning Bolt 3 Finger Ring
I love the lighting bolt! Its really cute! I also love that its a multi finger ring! Those are my fav. type of rings!!











Go check out the site and choose your favs! I'm not a big fan of the shoes but maybe you will like them. ALSO don't forget to check out my girl Ebony's blog at www.daintydiction.blogspot.com !!
