Thai cuisine is intense and complicated, like the reasons your uncle is staying with us for a while. Make room for this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $7 for $14 worth of Thai food for lunch
- $10 for $20 worth of Thai food for dinner
Lunch dishes come with a choice of protein, a cup of soup, salad, and a fried wonton. They range from pad Thai with chicken ($7) to curries and stir-fries, such as the Mthai special—bell peppers, cashews, and onions in a house sauce ($7 with chicken, beef, pork, or tofu, $9 with seafood). Alternatively, the dinner menu opens to entrees such as crispy snapper in sweet-and-sour sauce ($15) and steamed jumbo prawn with with clear noodles, sliced ginger, green onion, and cilantro ($14).
Mthai—located next to Scolari’s—is like a culinary ambassador for Thailand. Staples such as ginger-flavored stir-fries and five curries mix and mingle with American influence to the point that entirely new plates are born. The Mthai spaghetti, for instance, mixes noodles with chicken and basil leaves, and Americanized fried rice tops a medley of ham, sausage, and raisins with a sunny-side-up egg.
Still, anyone seeking authentic fare won't be disappointed. The owner sources her classic recipes from Thailand to create fresh pad see eew and steamed jumbo prawns. And to meet individual tastes and satisfy those who believe they've transformed into a lion, most dishes let diners choose their protein: chicken, pork, beef, tofu, seafood, or a combination.
