One of my colleagues was in Vevey from St. Louis for work this week, and it just so happened her 30th birthday is tomorrow! So, of course, we had to celebrate! This also provided a good reason to go to Mai Thai – one of the restaurants I’ve wanted to try.
(Side note: They served our Pad Thai family style. My French friend ordered Shrimp Pad Thai, too, and he declared our shared plate to be a “Love Plate.” Hilarious!)
When the birthday girl stepped away from the table to use the restroom, we asked if a dessert could come out with a candle. Apparently, something was lost in translation, because the server brought out an orange wedge with a candle in the PEEL! Definitely a birthday dessert that won’t be forgotten any time soon!
