Portland Happy Hour: E-San Thai Cuisine

A friend of mine and I make a point to get together every other week for dinner, and while we've been slacking a bit lately (too much hw as usual), with finals over we were finally able to meet for happy hour at E-San Thai Cuisine. Happy hour is only served in the bar and while the service was a bit slow, the relatively large food menu and $2 drafts certainly make the trek downtown worth it. After some deliberation, we ordered the egg rolls, wantons, Pad Thai and Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles). The egg rolls were tasty, the noodle dishes nice and spicy, and there was more than enough food for the two of us. And best of all, our 4 dishes and 3 beers came to a grand total of only $19.

And since there was no school the next day...we finished the night off with some hot buttered rum across the street at Kels (too cinnamon-y) before heading home to meet friends for hot cocoa with baileys (caramel it!) and a viewing of Elf. If only Christmas break lasted all year...
