ThaiBox whips up a menu of both authentic and fusion Thai meals compiled from nutritious ingredients and delightful flavors in a semi-service restaurant setting. Chefs appease vocal woks' sizzles for sustenance by tossing in broccoli, yellow curry, and your choice of meat or tofu to make a singapore noodles plate ($6.95). Red panang curries ($6.95) ladle an aromatic peanut and coconut milk potion over a bowl or jasmine rice to conjure spicy flavors and prophecies about Macbeth's job search. Take a traditional route with pad thai ($6.95) or pad kee mow ($6.95), or bulk up stringy teeth muscles by crunching through bamboo shoots, bell peppers, and carrots stir fried in the thai basil dish ($6.95). Kids' menu items line smaller bellies with proportionately sized portions of chicken fried rice, orange chicken, and chicken nuggets shaped like famous composers.
At Tom Yum Thai Restaurant, the eponymous soup arrives bearing a fragrant mix of coriander, lemongrass, lime leaves, and galangal roots, as well as a choice of chicken, shrimp, or tofu. Customers can adjust each bowl's spiciness, ordering soup to suit their palate's heat tolerance or to punish their tongue for licking telephone poles last winter. In addition to flavor, the soup may even have hidden health benefits. Once soups are slurped up, thai salads, noodle and rice dishes, and curries take their place, filling stomachs with stir-fried pork, pineapple chicken curry, and spicy peanut noodles.
