Though it makes for a far tastier afterlife, being mummified in rice noodles creates an appetizing target for roving gangs of panda bear apparitions. Avoid the scheming eyes of hungry huggables with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of casual Thai cuisine and drinks at Summer Summer Thai Eatery, which is located on Hollis Street.
Summer Summer Thai Eatery provides feasters with an expansive menu of flavor-punching, simplistically modern Thai plates. Begin fully filling an unfilled stomach with starters such as the organic chicken satay—strips of curry-marinated organic chicken charbroiled to smoky consistency—alongside a helping of creamy peanut sauce and crisp cucumber salad ($7.50). The house specialty, the yellow curry Kang Gari Kai, introduces organic chicken to bashful potatoes and carrots, and, like a supportive canasta coach, brings out the best in them with a rich yellow coconut curry sauce ($9.50).
Counter seating, airy space, and friendly service make Summer Summer Thai an ideal place for friends and families to get together and plot their next friendly jewel heist. While soaking in the new, clean space, soak up the traditional Thai dishes that make a cameo on the menu, including pad thai ($9), pad see-U ($9), Thai Fried Rice ($9), and tom yum soup ($5.50).
- This airy, serene Thai restaurant offers an abundance of curries, rice, noodle and wok dishes, plus light, creative wraps and rolls from the restaurant's fresh bar... The Goi Salmon, a Thai spin on ahi poke, is particularly good, and the Curry a Trois is perfect for sharing. – Contra Costa Times
- Highly recommended. Scrumptious fresh authentic Thai food with a froufrou twist without the pretentious price. What more can you ask for? – OpenTable.com reviewer who dined on 05/14/2010
