Where Was I Eating That Spicy and Sour Bowl of Yellow Curry? Kin Shop!
Congratulations to lmirabelle, who correctly guessed that I was eating the sour yellow curry ($19) at Kin Shop. Beneath the broth, golden-edged chunks of roasted king oyster mushrooms float among tender snow peas. Odd bits of winter melon and parsnips also swim in the bowl, allowing the dish to behave like a vegetarian oyster pan roast. Order a side of the faintly-scented coconut rice to sop up the remnants of sauce and congratulate yourself for ordering such a hearty vegetarian meal.
