Today a group of teachers and students participated in our monthly activity called "A Taste of OC."
The purpose of this activity is to give our Language Systems students the chance to taste some of the amazing ethnic foods we have here in Southern California.
Today we went to the Thai-Lao Market in Anaheim, which has a restaurant connected to the market. Both the market and restaurant are run by the same family. It's a true mom & pop hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant.
Today's activity had students from Thailand, China, Taiwan, Chile, Peru, and Japan. For most of them, it was their very first time to try Thai food. It was really delicious, yet inexpensive.
A combo plate with rice and 2 items was just $5.95. Most of the food was spicy, but that is to be expected from real Thai food.
We had a great time hanging out. Next month we'll be hitting a local Korean restaurant. We'll keep you posted!
