Thailand has had many names during its history—Dvaravati, Lavo, Sukhothai, Siam, Daphne—but its cuisine has remained largely unchanged. Partake of its timeless culinary delights with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cuisine and drinks at Taste of Thai in West Jordan.
Taste of Thai’s menu explores the rich culinary landscape of Southeast Asia by way of its Thailand-born chef Rujira Ashton. Hush grumbling bellies with a selection of tongue-tingling appetizers such as shrimp-in-a-blanket, swaddled in spring roll wrappers and deep-fried a golden brown (six for $6.95), before satiating curry cravings with yellow curry, which slowly simmers your choice of meat in a thick coconut-infused broth fortified with starchy potato mouthfuls ($7.95 at lunch, $10.95 at dinner). Herbaceous eaters, meanwhile, can uphold their uneasy peace treaty with cows with a som-tum salad, a zesty medley of shredded papaya, tomatoes, and green beans drizzled with lime juice and spicy thai dressing ($7.95). If you prefer a dessert that keeps suspected sweet teeth under tight surveillance, order an F.B.I (Fried Banana and Ice Cream), which fries up a 'nanner wrapped in wonton skin, then marries it to a scoop of coconut ice cream beneath a slow rain of chocolate, honey, and toasted coconut flakes ($4.95).
Taste of Thai
The cooks at Taste of Thai embed authentic Thai flavors into a menu of stir-fry, noodle, and curry dishes. Dinner guests can bat away encroaching hunger by merging a choice of chicken, beef, or seafood with six varieties of curry. Various meats and vegetables populate the stir-fry platters like citizens of a soy-sauce-flooded city, such as the pab gra thiam's garlic, baby corn, and green onions or the pad hin ma parn's cashews and roast chilies. For noontime nourishment, introduce taste buds to the traditional chicken or shrimp pad thai or the eatery's special broth, which ripples inside the ground-pork thai noodle soup accompanied by bean sprouts and cabbage. Visitors can signal the end of both meals by scratching plates with silverware or by feasting on desserts, such as the sweet sticky rice with sweet mango.
