      This recipe just goes to prove that I can make Thai food every bit as delicious as our favorite restaurant, with the help of someone on recipezaar! That flavor is amazing! I followed the recipe exactly but also added a small can of bamboo shoots to copy our local Thai restaurant's "Chicken Tom Kha" soup. Thank you so much for posting. I'll be making this again and again!
