Thai-Gour Cafe in Glen Burnie

Found a great little Thai restaurant this weekend. It's called Thai-Gour Cafe and it's in Glen Burnie, just near the government buildings at Glen Burnie Town Center. It only has about 15 tables, 4 of which were occupied when our group arrived. There's also a large bar area and it looks like they have bands later in the evening. Our reservation was definitely not necessary as it was so quiet.

Our group decided to try many different dishes, so we started with three appetizers - the basic chicken satay, gold cups (phyllo dough filled with chicken and vegetables), and kanom jeeb (steamed dumplings with pork and shrimp). All were good and even our toddler enjoyed them.

There was a long wait between the appetizers and the main course. Seemed like our group of 5 was overwhelming for the kitchen. Two of the dishes came out and then there was a wait for the rest, but then they all came out at once. It was a good thing we were all sharing.

We tried chicken lad na, kari kai, goong ob woonsen, honey ginger duck, and goong pooket. The goong ob woonsen, with shrimp, crab meat, glass noodles, and vegetables, was delicious. So was the goong pooket although the dish was spicier than expected. We didn't try dessert, but there were some nice options.

The people were very nice and the food was good. The total for 3 appetizers, 5 dishes, and drinks (including 2 beers) was about $85. There is free parking right there or in a garage across the street.
It's someplace I would try again and hope it survives for a while.
