Alright, so there's been Thai food in B/CS for some time. Chef Cao's in Bryan serves it, as do a few others. BUT now there's a Thai restaurant in B/CS. They just opened.
|In fact they don't even have a sign yet. That's how new this place is.|
|I found out the name of the business from the water glasses.|
The first thing I noticed was the decor. I didn't get a good picture of it, but it's dark. Which is surprising considering there are floor to ceiling windows on one side of the restaurant. But, hey, as long as the food is good I can live with it.
Another thing I noticed right off the bat was that the menus were fuzzy. It's the material that covers them. The restaurant is brand new so they're all clean, but, man, over the years that fuzzy material is going to be impossible to clean. I also noticed the menu is quite extensive and is lacking in drinks. I'm going to assume they don't yet have a permit to sell alcohol. So The Lovely Spouse and I ordered Thai iced teas.
|Talk about a tall one... And notice the cute salt and pepper shakers, as well as the neatly folded paper napkin.|
|The chicken satay was enough to share and was quite deliciously prepped. The peanut sauce and pickles were also very tasty. This could also work as a light meal in and of itself.|
Will we be back? Most likely. I'd like to give this place another shot. It's about time we got another Thai restaurant in town after all the others closed. The prices were a bit high for the college crowd ($13 for entrees and $6-7 for appetizers) so in the future I'm likely to skip the appetizers, unless I get them as my meal.
Do I recommend this place? Sure! Try some Thai food. I'm not sure it's authentic as I've never been to Thailand, but it's as tasty as any other Thai place I've visted.
Note: yes, it's been a long time between posts. I've been busy with grad school and trying to find a job. The job search is ridiculously frustrating but I'm keeping at it. It seems that the whole "shortage of STEM professionals" thing we've all been told isn't true at all. So while there are job advertisements all over the place, there are also hundreds of people applying for all the same jobs as me. Why am I wasting time on this blog when I could be applying for jobs? Because it's mind-numbing and soul-crushing applying for jobs all day and my brain needs a break.
