My Thai Kitchen

The farther one is away from the homeland of an ethnic cuisine, the less likely one is to get a taste of food the way it is supposed to taste, usually. Fortunately, My Thai doesn’t cook “down” to its guests. Instead they perfectly balance tastes emerging from Thai staples such as Thai basil, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, chilis, fish sauce and coconut milk. The result is a sizable menu with many dishes permitting diners to choose a preparation and a protein to feature. Red and green curries leave some diners seriously wanting to lick their plates clean; the Steam Fish in Thai Herbs shows a masterful hand with seafood; and a Panang beef (or chicken) is one of many good options for those who don’t want any heat at all in their dish. 3023 S.
