Question about Thai Food

I have only had it 3 times, all within the last 2 months. I've always heard that you order it on a spiciness scale of 1-10, and that 10 is supposed to be extremely spicy.

First time I ordered I got a 6, and it wasn't spicy at all, then I got an 8, and it barely registered. Last time I went 9 and it still didn't crave my spicy hunger.

I'm going to get a 10 next time, but wtf is up with all the hype?

P.S. I got Pad Thai each time, I don't know if that's just not a spicy dish or what.

i get this stuff at a little middle eastern grocery...incredible flavor and 'thai hot'...add some coconut milk and you've got a basic but tasty curry in minutes
I'd just make my own. The hardest thing to find in that ingredient list is Kaffir lime leaf... and I just happen to have two Kaffir lime trees on my back patio.

Ive done it both ways and I havent found the time/energy/expense cost to be worth the taste payoff when there are excellent quality pastes available. (that extra 20-30 minutes of prep and extra shopping time...I just havent found the payoff)

I could be talked into changing that viewpoint though.....maybe when my kid is older hahaha (we have some kind of chicken curry about once a week or a least a few times a month)

how long does it last if u make a batch fresh and store some of it?

Whats the best storage method?

Mortar N Pestle or food processor?

Have you tried some of the fresh pre-made pastes? (not the dry ones, but the 'wet' ones? Or any small batch/artisan/boutique vendors?)

in the last year i've become a Pho addict, there's a pho place on every corner. I love it because i can shoot it full of Sriracha and it makes it even better.
while back in KC i tried Pho KC down in the river market area. it was very good, but it came with lettuce instead of the basil which i don't understand. maybe its a regional thing.

I like this 'online chef' her recipes usually work well for me. Here's one for Pho http://www.steamykitchen.com/271-vie...-soup-pho.html

And here's a Thai recipe I make all the time - because it's full of good ol' Hillbilly ingredients - catfish and sweet potatoes! Good diet food for me. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/thai...0000000633511/

I don't normally make enough to keep on hand. I make what I need. In most cases, I have the ingredients on hand. I'm not patient enough to use a mortal and pestle, so I'll grind spices in the spice grinder and do everything else in the food processor or Vitamix.

This guy is fire ****ing good! I pay $7 for the exact same quality I paid $12 for up in Seattle. He's native, and he knows how to make the goods. I'm tempted to drive 45 minutes up there today to see him.
