Green curry & melon blossoms

Taste of Thai, Orleans Rd., Charleston, S.C.

In my campaign to eat green curry in every Thai Restaurant in South Carolina, I came across these carved blossoms on display at the Taste of Thai on Orleans Rd., West Ashley.

Wow. I can't imagine putting that much work into something that will rot. The carving was incredibly delicate. Is it some kind of melon?

I am pleased to report that the green curry passed my taste test as well although I can't seem to get enough eggplant. Truth is, I really just like eggplant in coconut curry sauce.
