Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

If Seamless had speed dial for its takeout-friendly cuisines, we'd bet Thai is number one. But there does come a time when pad Thai fatigue hits. A few staple ingredients can help you make a multitude of lesser-known but equally delicious Thai dishes. So take stock of coconut milk and umami-packed fish sauce and make your own takeout.

① Drink: Tamarind Whiskey Sour
You won't find any bottled sour mix here. Instead, Pok Pok chef Andy Ricker uses fresh citrus juice and palm sugar simple syrup for this reimagined bar staple, which was the first cocktail he served at the restaurant.

② Main Course: Khao Tung Na Tung
It's a mouthful to say, so we'll let a bite of this authentic peanut, pork and shrimp dip speak for itself. When piled on crispy rice cakes, it makes a deceptively filling dish that will leave you happily satisfied.

③ Side Dish: Smashed Cucumber Salad
Workweek got you down? Take it out on the cucumbers. This spicy yet refreshing salad couldn't be easier to make, and leftover dressing from the bottom of the bowl is great for pepping up a mound of plain white rice.
