Jutamas is a fine dining, Thai Restaurant in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. After worship service this morning my sweetheart and I joined our pastor and his sweet wife at Jutamas for a wonderful lunch and fellowship. My friend Rosy lives in Singapore, and because of the wonders of the internet she and I are able to talk about food often. Since she was not able to be at Jutamas with us…this post is for her.
We started our meal with a couple of appetizers. Fresh Rolls were brought to our table first. They were fresh spring rolls filled with cooked chicken, shrimp, egg noodles, avocado, tofu and vegetables and wrapped with rice pastry. Crushed peanuts are sprinkled on top, and they are served with peanut sauce.
Next up was Toong Tong. These tasty appetizers are crispy fried pastries stuffed with a mixture of pork, shrimp, and crab meat. They were served with sweet and sour sauce. Our waitress did not understand the order, and we were only brought a serving for two. Our pastor insisted Allen and I eat them. What a blessing, because they were delicious.
After our appetizers each of us were served a bowl of soup…I’m sorry, but I don’t know the name of the soup. It was delicious and enjoyed by all. It was made of chicken broth, tofu, basil leaves and bean sprouts.
This cute little lemon critter topped our pastor’s glass of unsweetened tea. My sweetie ordered sweet tea…he didn’t get a cute little lemon critter. :<
Our pastor ordered Phad Khing…This dish was sliced chicken, stir-fried fresh ginger, onions, bell peppers, carrots, baby corn and mushrooms in brown sauce.
Brenda, our pastor’s wife, ordered Shrimp Asparagus. It was asparagus with stir-fried shrimp with onion, carrots and bell peppers in brown sauce.
My sweetheart ordered Phad med Ma Moung. This dish was sliced chicken, stir fried with cashew nuts, onions, mushrooms, carrots and bell peppers in brown sauce.
And finally…I ordered Gang Keaw Wam. It is classic green curry, blended with coconut milk, green beans, carrots, eggplant, bamboo shoots, bell peppers and sweet basil. It was superb but way more than I could eat in one sitting. The dishes were so pretty…I would have loved to have taken them home with me. ~sigh~
Rosy, I hope this was almost as good as being with us. Even if we don’t ever share a meal on planet earth we can look forward to a grand banquet in heaven. Maybe we can sit close to one another there. I think we would have a grand time.
Until next time…
