The chefs at Bangkok Cuisine fry egg noodles, veggies, and meats to concoct a menu of authentic Thai dishes blended with the culinary traditions of India and China. Drape forks in rice noodles and crushed peanuts with the popular dinner portion of chicken pad thai ($10.75) or cast a fishing rod to dig into the pla dook pad ped, loaded with crispy catfish slices and thai hot curry ($13.95). Diners can enjoy a hearty entree selection with the pork gang dang's bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and green peppers ($10.75) and taste buds can leap in delight after licking the bowl of the pa-nang curry with chicken and white rice ($10.75). The house-made thai coconut ice cream ($2) is ideal for capping off a meal or calming the nerves of former tropical-island castaways.
Menu pricing and availability may vary by location.
In woks at Bangkok Cuisine, snow peas, shrimp, napa cabbage, and scallops snap sizzling drumrolls over the stove. Ingredients indigenous to Southeast Asia mingle in traditional Thai dishes, which also draw on the culinary traditions of the country’s neighbors. Catfish fillets marinate before chefs cover them in breading and chili sauce, and shrimp, scallops, and squid evoke Thailand’s palm-tree-sprinkled coast. Chefs tailor each dish’s spiciness to individual palates, delighting daring diners with thai peppers hotter than two astronauts hugging on Mars. Fusion dishes include Chinese staples such as sweet-and-sour sauce.
