Cee Fine Thai Dining, Fairfax, VA

I am a big believer in trying new things. I love to try new places to eat and to try new things on different menus. My parents told me that they had a new place for us to try out for dinner:

Cee’s Fine Thai Dining

I have always been a fan of Thai food. My parents never wanted to try out any Thai restaurants with me in high school. Whenever we went out for family dinners I wanted Thai, but no one else did. When they suggested this Thai restaurant tonight I was very surprised and excited. Apparently they went here with some friends and loved it. I was hoping to love it too!

Cee’s is a cute little restaurant off Fairfax Boulevard. April 326

  I loved all the detail as soon as I sat down. Check out these cute plates. I want them in my apartment! April 328

  As soon as we sat down, we ordered drinks! I got a Pinot Noir, my dad got a Thai beer and my mom got a lychee martiniApril 330

Cheers to mama, papa and daughta!April 331

Say hello to my mom and dad blog world! I think this is their first official blog picture!   April 335

And here I am! Their favorite (only) daugther!

My mom and I were practicing out wedding smiles today. She told me that when you say “Prune” you naturally smile.

Here I am mid- “prune” – try it, it works! April 338

The happy family, minus brother and fiancé (and the dogs!) – ok we are missing many parts of our family, but this is dad with the girls!April 339

On to dinner! We started off with Paper Moons – which are crab filled won-tons! They were delish! April 341

Then we all split some chicken satay and jacketed shrimp.

They we split Pad Himmapan – Sliced chicken sautéed stir fried with cashew nut, onion, bell pepper and carrot.

April 345

We also had the Panang – chicken cooked in panang curry paste with
coconut milk and basil leaves.

April 346

Both dishes were awesome, but they also were FIREY HOT! They were burning my face off! I love a spicy dish, but these were crazy hot. The food was awesome, but next time we come back I have to ask them to tone down my plates a tiny bit. I thought I could handle the spice, but I was wrong.

Can you handle spicy dishes?

April 347

For dessert we had my favorite Thai dish – mango and sticky rice. This stuff rocks my socks off.

Have you ever tried this dish?

I love me some Thai food! Yummers!

    I love Thai food…and wine 🙂 I also love the pictures of your mum and dad. This is just such a great post, Leslie. It is going to make Jimmy very hungry – I see Thai in my future tonite. I sent you a little sunshine on my (our) blog today 🙂

    I love Thai food. I was first introduced to it while visiting a friend when I was 14. I was hooked. I actually developed more of a tolerance for heat because I wanted to be able to try more Thai dishes. I'm now in the medium range for heat tolerance but it means I can now eat most things Thai. Yum – my favorites ate curries, an eggplant-green bean dish, and praram – love spinach with peanut sauce!
    Now I want Thai food!!

    Cee's I think is better than Tara Thai – been to both and prefer Cee;s. Friends who have lived in Thailand said that the food is very authentic. Looks like you have enjoyed your weekend at home.
