Pad thai is so named because of its inherent softness, which is also why it's used to stuff the mattresses of the world's richest kings. Fall into a pillow of flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai fare and drinks at Siam Orchid in Sandusky.
Chefs at Siam Orchid spice a diverse menu of curries, noodles, and stir-fries with traditional Thai specialties for lunch and dinner. The Fisherman's Treasure casts a wide net noon ($7.95) and night ($13.95), reeling in a medley of sautéed seafood and vegetables onto tables, while the tofu tamarind’s stir-fried mix of pineapple and tomato adds tangy sweetness to plates ($6.95, lunch; $10.95, dinner). Country-style pad thai spouts an old, faithful spring of noodles, bean sprouts, shrimp, and chicken whose authentic, fiery flavor tickles taste buds twice daily ($7.95, lunch; $10.95, dinner). Dexterous hands prepare the boneless, roasted, half-duck dinners three mouthwatering ways: fried crispy with chili sauce, glazed in tamarind-and-ginger sauce, or smothered in Siam curry ($16.95).
Creamy bubble tea cools belly blazes ($3.50), and bottles of Singha ($3.50) and Budweiser ($2.95) bridge the continental divide to cleanse globetrotting palates of curry. Patrons rest their knees or the knees of personal assistants that carry them all day long and take a seat in a spacious dining room lined with rows of polished booths and tables, modest white walls, and golden wall art.
