At Street Side Thai Kitchen, spice-soaked aromas fill an elegantly decorated dining area adorned with crimson curtains and jet-black tables. Enter the restaurant’s epicurean oasis and feast on a menu stacked with warming, customizable sustenance forged from a choice of meats, veggies, and meat substitutes. Culinary journeys commence with appetizers such as deep-fried egg rolls or puffy veggies, a golden-fried, peanut-encrusted crowd brimming with soft tofu, carrot, and taro that flaunts herbaceous goodness like a farmer’s trophy room. Street-vendor-style wok and noodle dishes include the ka-prao, a steaming army of rice that surrounds protein centerpieces such as chicken, salmon, scallops, or beef with fresh garlic and bell peppers. Tofu and mock chicken leap into eight styles of curry, including pumpkin-infused and panang varieties, which bathe palates in piquant broths and usher diners into exotic gardens of spice.
