Pom's Thai Taste
When Bangkok native Pom Boobphachati was obtaining her MBA in hospitality at Johnson & Wales University, she wasn't content to just learn her trade in theory. She also picked up a job serving in a local restaurant, where she impressed her boss so much she was asked to manage a new eatery. The experience encouraged her to open her own place, Thai Taste, which has been serving authentic Thai flavors since 2002.
To ensure her dishes were completely authentic, Pom made a trip back to Thailand to brush up on the modern techniques and presentations being used there. What she learned resulted in the creation of an extensive menu that features more than 100 dishes, as well as vegetarian, gluten-free, kid-friendly options.
These dishes range from a Dancing Shrimp entree that Portland Magazine proclaimed a "theatrical, savory treat" to popular options including create-your-own noodle bowls, pho, boat noodles with braised beef short ribs, and chicken and salmon teriyaki.
Three more locations with nature-inspired decor are currently open.
