Step inside, and check out the decorative intricately carved teak log wooden statues and other carvings. There’s some six layers or receding levels of carvings of elephants amidst dense foliage. It’s a surprisingly roomy place, with tables well-spaced apart, and quite a few booths for 2-4 people.
Have a seat and have a Singha or Chang Thai beer, Corona, Heineken, Miller or O’Douls beer; a good wine; or soft drinks.
|Stuffed Chicken Wings
I love the Tom Yum soup- this $4 small/ $8 large soup has a generous portion of chicken in coconut milk with Thai herbs, mushrooms and cilantro. I also recommend the mild heat of the Tom Yum Gai hot and sour lemongrass broth with mushrooms, cilantro and truly fresh tomato. There's a goodly chicken portion in the soups.
|Hot n Sour soup
Go for some of the House specialty dishes, like HS3-$14 Ka-Prow spicy choice of pork, beef or chicken, sautéed with spicy chili sauce, with fresh basil, onions, peppers and mushrooms. I really like the HS4’s $14 Gai Ma-Mong’s chicken sautéed with peppers, carrots and onions, topped with cashews.
|Chicken with Cashews
Now, take advantage of the $30 Summer Special that feeds two diners, with a bottle of quite good Coastal Vines brand wine (Cabernet, Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio). I enjoy the bold tannins and dark berries of the Cabernet with Thai food, (I can also recommend beer, which is not part of the special). The dinner for two has a choice for each diner of a large spring roll, or choice of soup (Won Ton or Yom Yum Hot and Sour soup).
The eight entrees for the special include Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, Gang-Dang, and various curries and my Gai Ma-Mong chicken with Cashew Nuts.
If you have room for dessert, get the $4 portion of crisply fried bananas with tasty ice cream, drizzled with a lightly spiced honey sauce.
