Rice Thai Cookery
With more than 80 menu items hailing from stir-fried, curried, and benoodled disciplines, Rice runs the gamut of authentic Thai fare, often infusing signature dishes and specialties with its own twist. The wonton pad Thai hurls tradition out the window and into a passing tornado by tossing crispy wontons into a Thai stand-by ($11), while the lemongrass chicken, a house specialty, bathes delicately flavored grilled poultry in a luxurious peanut sauce coating ($9.50). The Indian-style gang mussamun curry, with potato, carrots, onions, and peanuts, stows away a spicy kick just like the other dishes of its kind, while scrumptious stir-fries range from the wholesome veggies delight to the decadent spicy cashew nut. Most stir-fries, curries, fried rice, and noodle dishes come with a choice of pork, chicken, beef, or tofu ($9), although diners can upgrade to shrimp, squid, and scallop ($10.50), or a combination of seafood ($13.50) rivaling the regal bounty of Poseidon's fly rod.
