Taste Of Thailand (kinda long)

GiGi | Feb 10, 2003 08:34 AM

Found this place this past weekend, and it was unbelievable! I am skeptical about eating Thai food anywhere but Kanomwan (maybe just afraid of it not living up to *that* standard), but we were over on the other side of town (where my boyfriend lives)and decided to chance it. We were blown away. It was quiet, not too full at the time we were there (8PM Saturday), but you could tell they had some devoted regulars. The owner was the person who waited on us, and she was extremely accomodating. While enjoying our Singha beers, we were asking about how big the soups were, and she mentioned they were big - but that they could make small bowls of whatever we wanted. Score! One of my favorite things about Thai food is that its nice to always try something different, and to share it (they also will make you something you like, if its not on the menu)! So, I had a chicken-coconut curry soup - it was truly heavenly. They have a few different heat levels for spicy things they serve: mild, medium, hot, make you sweat (the soup AND our main dish were firery)! We shared the green curry for our main dish, and it was the best I've ever tasted. The taste was spicy hot, with a tinge of that sweet coconut - mixed with bamboo shoots, green peppers, red peppers, and snow peas. Of course, the rice was perfect as well - and my sweetie and I were only disappointed that we were too full to finish the curry. Of course, we always have room to share a dessert - and we did. It was homemade coconut ice cream, served atop palm fruit and a little sticky rice. We really thought it was the best coconut ice cream we've eaten; the palm fruit was a nice addition. The whole family is involved in the business, I learned. The owner's brother, father and mother all cook there. The parents were a very content looking elderly couple - who peeked their heads out now and then to check on the scene. I can truly say this was one of the best eating experiences I've had in a while. Its out on HWY 6, about 3 miles past 290 (we took the beltway, and it was simple). I know, I know - its way the heck out there - but its worth it when you get a craving for Thai food!
