Had the owner set up a special dinner for a group of 12, Outstanding in all respects, including some Southern Thai specialties dishes I am told you can only get at Emporium. Here are some notes.
Southern Thai Specialty Dishes:
-Morning Glory Salad
Lightly battered strands of watercress (aka “morning glory”) mixed with shrimp and perfect dressing of fish sauce, lime, and chili. This dish is a really a unique preparation and really good.
-Coco Mango Salad Shrimp & -Coco Mango Salad Tofu
Shredded raw mango mixed with dried coconut, fresh chili, and lime juice.
-Crying Tiger Beef and Pork
Thai-style char-grilled (beef and Pork). Marinated, grilled and served with homemade chili sauce. My favorite,
-Kua Kling with Shrimp
-Spicy Mussels Soup
The New Zealand green lip mussels in a broth of lemongrass, dried chili, and basil - another hit.
We also had some special dishes that the chef prepared
-Thai Basil Chili Garlic Lamb
tender cuts of lamb sautéed with fresh garlic, black pepper and Thai herb. Could have this everytime.
-Crispy Honey Duck
Twice-cooked duck that is crispy in a dark honey glaze. Very good.
-Tofu Satay & Chicken Satay
firm tofu stir fried with fresh garlic, Thai basil and light soy sauce. Topped with steamed mixed vegetables.
-Pad Wonsen Shrimp
silver noodles pan-fried with green vegetable, onions, black mushrooms, bean sprouts, and scrambled eggs.
Lots of food, all of which was very well prepared. Great service too. Much better than any other options on the Westside and unique Southern Thai specialties..
