Curry for days
Pumpkin curry, Bangkok@12 Thai Restaurant
Pumpkins don’t always belong in pies. My favorite year-round dose of vitamin A is the pumpkin curry ($10.95) from Bangkok@12 Thai Restaurant. Meaty chunks of squash and tofu swim in an addictive red curry sauce made creamy with coconut milk. Sub prawns, chicken or pork for the tofu for $3 more and order it with brown rice. It scratches my itch for Thai flavors every time, and provides enough curry for two good-sized servings. With the carrots, peppers and plentiful basil, it’s a meal-in-one dish. 900 12th Street, http://bangkok12restaurant.com.
