The ability to differentiate between red and green curry is the mark of a good Thai chef and a common tell among children faking colorblindness to skip school. Test your rods and cones with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Thai cuisine at Thai Hut, valid at the location on Highgrove Place.
Thai Hut welcomes visitors to an authentic dining area complete with traditional kantok seating and swirling aromas of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy dishes. Amid aesthetic touches of lavender wall hues and intricate woodcarvings, diners introduce flavor receptors to specialties such as the barbecued Lovely chicken with stir-fried vegetables and cashew nuts ($10.95). The bangkok beef, like the rare movie star who respects his mother’s entreaties, arrives at tables with an entourage of eggs, broccoli, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and onions ($9.95). Sautéed vegetables and cilantro permeate the Fire jumbo shrimp with flavor ($18.95), and to complement the traditional herbs and spices of Thai Hut's melismatic culinary combinations, the chefs create thai iced coffees or teas ($2.95). The dessert roster includes such treats as the thai custard ($4.95) and the fried banana with vanilla ice cream ($4.95), which works well as a punishment for children that do too much homework.
Ornately wooden screens with curlicues of carved vines and leaves free the aromas of spices, sweet basil, and coconut milk to drift between booths. Beneath lavender walls and intricate woodcarvings, diners slip chopsticks into noodle-tangled bowls of chicken, shrimp, stir-fried vegetables, and curry. As the clatter of plates and conversation gives way to happy sighs, Thai Hut's dessert roster parades out thai custard and fried bananas, which work well as punishment for children who do too much homework.
