Thai Town 5130 W. 38th St.

There are two Thai Towns on the westside. One on South High School Road and this. The newest. It is a very spacious and good looking joint.

It was a chilly day and Pat and I both ordered Thai Ginger tea. It was served to us with our first course. The first course was an excellent Thom Yum soup and a spring roll. The soup was excellent. Sparse on veggies but abundant in depth of flavor. It had a slight heat to it, which brought a warmth. The spring rolls are made in house and have onion in them so Pat gave me his. I thought they were wonderful. They reminded me of something I used to eat from an A&P Deli many years ago.

I also must add the the tea was delicious. My usual tea samplings have been limited to a more pedestrian variety so the Thai Ginger tea was quite a treat.

I followed Pat with an order of a red curry with medium heat. It was very good. A nice consistence level of heat punctuated with a few veggies. I would have prefered more eggplant and less green beans but it was still a good dish. I couldn’t finish it all after my soup and two spring rolls.

All in all this was a very nice lunch with excellence service.and at a very good price. Our lunches were 8 bucks each. I will be back for the tea, spring rolls and soup. That would be a meal for me.

  1. It does sound like a good hot lunch on a winter’s day. Warming you for hours, no doubt. I do love ginger tea, and am curious of theirs, but I seldom drive to the west side. In fact, when I saw 38th street, I wondered if the 51 block is near me, alas, no. We have Phaya Thai at The Fort, so that’s our place 🙂

    • I have to remind myself that there is a westside. One thing I can say about the locale is that it definitely has an International flair. Saraga reminds of a huge mercado in Mexico City.

  2. Looks elegant and comforting. Red curry is the best!

    • Ir was very nice but I was full on the rolls and soup so I couldn’t fully appreciate it.
