Thai Recipes Restaurant 401 E. Thompson Road.

Thai Recipes 004

This restaurant is very new. It is at the corner of Thompson Road and US 31. A pretty busy intersection. Pat lives very close by so he was intrigued when he saw the fancy sign going up. He learned from chatting with the owner that this is his first joint and he plans on doing all of his advertising by “social media”. He does have a very nice website.

The place is on the small side but still can seat a bunch of bodies. It is very tastefully decorated in what I would call a Classical Asian style.

The menu is very traditional,offering several luncheon specials for $7.88, and a pretty good beer and wine list as well. As a general rule I don’t dig Asian beer so I usually stick with water as my beverage of choice.

This is the soup and Spring Roll that comes with each lunch entrée. The soup was a spicy,broth concoction with a few pieces of mushroom and tofu and some cilantro leaves. I agree with Pat. It was a bit spicy and very good. The roll was crunchy and crisp with vegetables. It would stand on its own as an appetizer.

The last few times we have gone to Thai joints I was determined to get some wide rice noodles. Euphemistically referred to as ” drunken noodles”. However, when I do something “shiny” on the menu distracts me and I don’t. This time it was pineapple, water chestnuts and sticky rice all dressed up in a tomato sweet and sour. Now how could I resist.

As you may expect it was an excellent dish. Full of flavor and tremendous textural components it was a wonderful lunch.

I know there are several Thai places around the city but I think we can support one more and I think this joint is worth considering.
