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.
Thai Classic Restaurant's chefs work with an array of exotic ingredients and savory spices, from creamy coconut milk to fiery dried chilies to fresh ginger. They distribute these ingredients across an extensive menu of traditional Thai soups, curries, and noodle dishes. To craft one of their specialties—Thai Classic seafood curry—the chefs simmer fresh seafood in tangy red curry with bamboo shoots and basil leaves. Diners await meals over glasses of sweet iced tea in the sunlit dining room, where gold flowers speckle deep red walls.
From panang curry to crispy pork in garlic and oyster sauce, chefs use USDA-certified meats and quality ingredients to create fresh Thai dishes with no MSG or preservatives. The kitchen combines three distinctive cooking styles—authentic, signature, and Bangkok style—to highlight Thailand’s diverse recipes. Expansive leather booths and spacious tables give customers space to stretch out and do short sprinting drills as they dig into the chefs’ creations.
Aromas of curries, sautéed vegetables, and spicy sauces permeate Krung Thep Thai Cuisine’s sunny space. Meat-packed entrees of beef curry, spicy thai fried rice, and lime-infused rib-eye steak fill tables alongside hearty vegetarian platefuls, such as stir-fried tofu and sautéed bean sprouts. Authentic Thai soups simmer with spicy herbs or succulent ground pork, and classic noodle dishes entangle chinese broccoli, baby corn, and your choice of protein, such as chicken, pork, or tofu. To wash down meals or water its epicurean bonsai tree, the eatery conjures Thai iced teas and coffees, and fresh juices made from lemongrass, coconut, and palm.
Charm Vegan's menu draws from an eclectic assortment of international cuisines, but every dish demonstrates the same commitment to healthful, vegan-friendly cooking. Soy-based meat and seafood alternatives find their way into dishes that embrace the flavors of southeast Asian cuisine. Although the wealth of spicy chilies, sweet basil leaves, and bold curries demonstrates the chefs' dedication to Thai recipes, they also draw culinary inspiration from other regions. American standbys also find their way into the menu in the shape of burgers made with grilled tofu instead of traditional patties formed with ground beef and copies of the U.S. Constitution.
