You know how the second time is never as good as the first?
I’m hoping that old wisdom isn’t true tonight. I have the opportunity to return to Thara Thai in Champaign, Ill., for dinner. Good Thai food — in the heart of Illinois? Find it here. I wrote about this place a year ago, so I know enough to bring Kleenex.
Update: The shrimp green curry isn’t as hot as I remember. But delicious!
