Sala Thai: A Groupon got me there, but the food will keep me returning!



After purchasing a groupon to Sala Thai back in July, it was quickly forgotten about. Last week, an e-mail reminded me that the promotional value was expiring soon. A long weekend was a great time to enjoy some Thai Food. Actually anytime, night or day, is a good time for Thai Food.

Sala Thai promotes the fresh ingredients in all their dishes. I was excited to try it out. Everything on the menu looked good but of course I had to start with some Tom Yum Soup. Most mornings I wake up with a Tom Yum craving. Maybe there is a 12 step program to help you break this addiction. If there is a program, I don't want to recover.



We started with some Fresh Spring Rolls: steamed spring rolls filled with fresh vegetables, noodles, shrimp, chicken and Thai basil. It's served with a homemade sauce that is incredibly delicious. A thick, bitter soy-based sauce sprinkled with chopped peanuts. It's a great compliment to the rice paper on the spring rolls. Once you have consumed a couple of these rolls, a fear passes over you. Not a fear that you won't be feeling well, but a fear that you won't be able to fit as much other food in as you had hoped.

Alas, the Tom Yum Soup arrived. Now this moment is a majestic experience for me. I love to savor every second as the steam and aroma float gently up to my face. I inhale with closed eyes then look down to stir the soup and watch with admiration as the meat and veggies glide through the beautiful broth. If the perfect mixture of vinegar and spices are in the broth, the first spoonful is a moment when time stands still. You are content to let the day unwind as it was meant to be. This was a perfect Tom Yum Soup. I was weak in the knees and have had similar experiences at Tasty Thai, Siam Orchid and Pawit's Royale.



All of the curry dishes looked delicious. You can't go wrong with either Green, Red, Massaman, Panang or Yellow Curry. It truly depends on what you are desiring. Since I am a lover of the kaffir lime leaves, I went with Panang Curry. I quickly learned again a lesson that I thought I had mastered at Chanon Thai Cafe. "Medium Spicy" for Thai food means very spicy. It was wonderful anyway with a perfect creamy sauce.




I am so glad that I found Sala Thai kitchen. The interior is just as good as the food. They do a great job of making you feel very comfortable. The menu is large and I can't wait to try it all. You will find them downtown right next to Brewvies, another place with fabulous food and occasional good movies.

  2. First of all I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't
    mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!
