I have never been a big fan of Thai food, although I like other Asian food. Just the ones we had tried back in Dallas didn’t do anything for me. But we have eaten three times here in the last two weeks since this new restaurant has opened up, the Thai House Restaurant on Hwy 62. The food is awesome and it’s so nice to have another great restaurant in our little burg.
They have an extensive menu with everything from appetizers, noodles, curry, beef, pork and seafood to soups and salads. My absolute love is Fried Pork Dumplings (ground pork with Thai herbs) served with a wonderful homemade dumpling sauce, in the photo. My entree favorite, currently, is Lad-Na (Crispy egg noodles topped with carrots, onions, fresh mushrooms – which I have them leave out, not a fan – and broccoli in a garlic brown sauce. That sauce is to die for!
We have also had Teriyaki Beef (I eat off of Jeff’s plate, shamelessly), Cashew Nut chicken, Ginger chicken, and another appetizer: the Summer Rolls (rice paper wrapped with lettuce, bean sprouts, chicken, fried eggs and served with a sweet creamy sauce & ground peanuts). We have had fellow innkeepers that are big fans of the Pan Thai (stir-fried rice noodles with eggs, bean sprouts, green onions and topped with ground peanuts) and Evil Jungle Prince (choice of meat sauteed in red chili paste, coconut milk, bamboo shoots and basil, served on a bed of chopped cabbage). As you can see, reading the menu is half the fun!
Be sure and try them the next time you stay with us – no, you can’t walk to this one, unfortunately, but it’s worth the car trip!
