Thai food is celebrated for its complex, layered flavors, and Bangkok Blue Thai Cuisine's food is no exception. Its chefs stir-fry chicken with garlic and chilies for an intense yet pleasant burn, and add a touch of sweetness to deep-fried squid with their housemade sweet chili sauce. Many of their dishes use flavorful broths or curries, such as their intensely flavored hot-and-sour soup or massaman curry, a Southern Thai specialty.
The desserts also employ many flavors. Chefs toss sticky rice with sweet coconut milk and tangy slices of mango, and buy bananas shots of rum to create drunken banana flambes.
Yellow, green, and red curries bubble slightly in pans, ready to be poured over pieces of pork and shrimp. Nearby, chefs flip teriyaki-glazed salmon filets and barbecue chicken on the grill inside Thai California Kitchen. They also pan-fry noodles and sauté proteins in a variety of dressings including peanut sauce or Thai chili paste.
