Krabi, Thailand

Our last stop in Asia was in Krabi, Thailand in the lower Andaman coast. While the Thai food was certainly good (with gorgeous views to boot), the food in the States was also comparable at some points. 
We tried to sample local dishes like chicken satay, spring rolls, various curries, pad see ew, pad thai (of course), and chicken with cashews and chilies (must find this dish in the States).
One of our favorite meals was at Mr. Krab-I in downtown Krabi town. It's run by a Milano husband and Thai wife. The atmosphere was casual, but the food was on point. We had the best noodles there; sticky, salty, and a tad sweet.
Another favorite meal was at Lae Lay Grill in Ao Nang beach, where we traversed up a mountain to eat at this cliffside restaurant. We devoured an entire steamed sea bass with keffir lime and red peppers and crispy grouper with a sweet chili sauce. So good.
Our trip was absolutely fantastic. If anyone is tinkering with the notion of traveling to Asia, drop me a line. It's an incredible journey and well worth every penny and every minute in the air.
