Pad Thai Cafe's menu of popular Asian plates and authentic Thai cuisine crafted with fresh, delectable ingredients heeds the call of grumbling bellies with delectable dishes. Rice noodles, peanuts, sprouts, scallions, egg, and garlic tango in the pad thai dish, and chili, garlic, jalapeño, basil, egg, and scallion congregate for a savory conference in the spicy basil Thai-fried rice ($8.50–$16 depending on choice of protein). Order an appetizer, such as the crab rangoon ($5 for six pieces), house fresh spring rolls ($4.50 for two), or fried spring rolls ($3 for two), and nibble on tasty bites instead of chewed-up pen caps. Stop by the café to sate a midday craving or eschew afternoon soap-opera viewings to enjoy a lunch special such as the kung pao chicken, a spicy mélange of chili, nuts, baby corn, and chicken ($5.95).

Thai Pattaya's chefs demonstrate a mastery of myriad cooking styles with their pan-Asian dishes, from the Vietnamese soup known as pho to plates of to crispy tamarind duck. Chicken, beef, and veggies commingle within bowls of rice noodles, or with fried rice flavored with basil, lime, and other classic herbs harvested late at night from the backyards of homes in Thailand. The kitchen team also crafts fragrant curries as well as less-common specialties such as a grilled panang salmon with kaffir-lime leaves.

Before breakfast crowds arrive, chefs at Fish & Grits roll out crusts for key-lime pie and caramel cheesecake and spread icing onto chocolate cakes as they cool. Though diners may not crave sweets for hours, so much of the Southern-infused menu is made-to-order that the cooks need to prep as much as they can before servers start swarming into the kitchen with orders. For breakfast, they flip customized omelets, and for lunch they toss individual portions of creamy tuna or chicken salads. Tilapia fillets blacken to a flaky finish on the grill, while catfish sizzles to a golden brown in the deep fryer. To supplement the savory seafood, grits come in six flavors—one for each chamber of the human stomach.
