What first comes to mind when you think about Asian food? Hopefully this month will expand your horizons to the local options besides your neighborhood Chinese take-out joint. For those of you who still celebrate Valentine's Day, the LV & B offers a variety of Asian restaurants proving to be ideal date spots.
My primary local preference for Thai food is found in downtown Bethlehem: Thai Thai II. To my knowledge, it shares an owner with relatively new to Emmaus: Thai Thai House. If you have had the opportunity to try the downtown Emmaus location, we'd love to receive your comments!
Thai Thai II offers a quaint location, clean, bright, modern environment, with exceptional service. Its menu, aesthetics and respectful staff provide a seemingly overall authentic experience, which often seems stripped down in current trendy Thai restaurants.
Thai food is a vegan and vegetarian-friendly genre, also offering tofu or meatless dishes. Our friends enjoy the Pad See Aew, a stir-fried flat noodle with egg, chinese broccoli and seasoning soy sauce. Drunken noodles is another stir-friend flat noodle served with a variety of vegetables, choice of meat and basil sauce.
|Vegetarian Kra Prow|
One of my favorite selections on their menu is Vegetarian Kra Prow: a variety of vegetables, tofu, and a distinct, palatable basil sauce served over rice. For a starter, I recommend thai dumplings, spring rolls or a thai salad drizzled with the classic peanut dressing. For the sweet tooth, try a classic Thai iced tea.
Thai Thai II is versatile, providing an environment for a romantic date, night out with friends, lunch with a coworker, and ample seating for a family outing. Its quiet setting promotes quality conversation. However, if there is a birthday in the room, you'll enjoy "Happy Birthday" played loudly with the lights dimmed! Finally, you'll leave satisfied, tastebuds enlightened, with a light, healthy feeling.
