It's not every day you find a Cornish hen in your curry. Actually, its not every day you find chicken in stateside Thai spots that isn't of the dull boneless-skinless variety. Circles has plenty of that at both it's locations, but at their Northern Liberties outpost (812 N. 2nd St.), you can order the Southern Islam Massaman Curry, a mouthful starring a crispy-skinned braised poussin charged with cardamom, cloves, bay and mace. The moist, delicate bird makes a pretty presentation, and the mix-ins of elegantly slender carrots, grilled roasted pearl onions and unbelievably good (I can't overstate this enough) fingerling potatoes give this curry a puttin'-on-the-ritz feel. I had it last week, and I don't think I'll ever order anything else from Circles again. Eat this immediately.
