Nashville Food Friday: Thai Esane


I love Thai food. I can always get behind a good pad thai or drunken noodles. Nashville has a fair amount of places were you can get your sticky rice fix, but new comer Thai Esane gives them all a run for their money.

A nice bright dining room greets you upon entry. I really like how open and clean the main space is. We were seated in a smaller room off to the side, and that had a more intimate, warm feel. I also really like their location 12th Ave, being very close to many things. (I went to a show at Cannery Ballroom after- a few blocks away). 

We started off by sharing the springrolls with shrimp.  The roll itself was my least favorite part of the dinner. They were very cold- like they were pre-made and they were sitting in the refrigerator for who knows how long. Because of this the rice paper was very chewy. Combined with an over-abundance of lettuce made this an appetizer you can pass on. I'll just try something else next visit.

Because the weather has been incredibly cold I opted for a soup and opted for my favorite Thai option Tom Yum.  This soup was lovely and had a really nice sweet heat. There were tons of fresh veggies in here and I was sad when the bowl was empty. I highly recommend this soup.

For my entree I ordered dry Sukiyaki- a skinny noodle dish with celery, cabbage, egg and a special sauce. The menu didn't mention that this came with egg, but I asked, and I was very happy that it came with an abundance of egg.  I asked for this dish medium spicy and that was the correct level for me. I will say that most of the food from Thai Esane comes out SPICY. You should be really honest about how hot you want it, knowing that if you order it hot or medium, you will certainly feel it. But back to the entree. I was so happy with this dish that I totally finished the whole plate like a boss. 

I really liked Thai Esane, and I'm really jealous that I'm too far away to take advantage of their 3 mile radius delivery service. If you are looking for quality Thai food in a good atmosphere at a reasonable price- this is your place.

  3. Hmm... rice paper rolls (which is what the entree is is a Vietnamese dish and the sukiyaki is actually a Japanese dish that isn't what you had. That looks like it should be a pad thai noodle but with vermicelli noodles instead of rice noodles. The soup is Thai and looks great.

  4. I am a student doing a project for an Entrepreneurship class. For our class project, we have a concept of a driven food tour. We are currently looking for feedback on our idea and would really appreciate answers to some of the following questions to help better develop our product:

    1) What do you think about a moving picnic vehicle that would take you to several different restaurants and allow you to eat with family/friends while traveling around Nashville? Ideally, it would be a 2-hour tour in a vehicle with a picnic table in the center (think Pedal Tavern but with a picnic table instead of a bar). The tour would take you to 5 of Nashville's best and most well-known restaurants (Monell's, Hattie B's, etc) and the food would be brought to you to eat at the picnic table while the driver is giving you a brief history of the restaurant.

    2) What do you like/dislike about this idea?

    3) What would deter you from signing up for such a tour?

    4) How much money would you be willing to pay for this type of experience?

    5) What could be done to improve this tour experience, or which additional features do you wish would be included?

  6. The ideas, and even scenes, in this movie can be found in a whole list of SF novels and movies from Invasion of the Body Snatchers to Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse series), John Carpenter's The Thing, Alien, Avatar, The Astronaut's Wife, Blair Witch, Tarkovsky's Stalker & Solaris, and JG Ballard's The Crystal World. (In one scene I thought I was watching Ghostbusters.) It throws in some genetics jargon and wraps everything in pseudo-philosophical nonsense while adding nothing new. watch happy death day online free


    The story makes no sense. Perhaps the most significant event in human history and the investigation team seems to have the budget and staffing of a small university chemistry department. watch rampage
    Over the course of several years many research teams have entered the Shimmer, never to return (mostly). Surely, by now they'd have nuked it? But no, they do exactly the same thing again with a new team. watch the devils candy online free hd


    They go in with no back-up plan; in fact no plan at all. No protocols. Not even a bio-hazard suit? And apparently no paper and pencil for making notes, which would have been useful when they find themselves lost and with no memory of the previous 4 days. Really? They are supposed to be scientists. watch Avengers: Infinity War free online


    The protagonists do all the stupid things people in horror movies always do: Just been attacked by a giant mutant alligator? Sure, let's take to the water in small boats. Attacked by a giant mutant bear? Sure, wander off in the jungle alone. happy death day nude As with Garland's previous offering, Ex Machina, it's all style and no substance; nothing that hasn't been done before, better.
