I had been dying to try out My Thai Café, as it had recently opened up a new location on 4th Street a few weeks ago. It is now in walking distance from my house, and stomach, and I was very excited to experience their cuisine.
When I first walked in, it had a quaint and relaxed atmosphere. Quiet Thai music played gently in the background and I was seated promptly along with my FPIC (Food Partner in Crime) for the day. We ordered a few appetizers to start off with. The Crab Rangoon, a deep fried wonton stuffed with crab meat and cream cheese, and fresh spring rolls, which were filled with tofu, rice noodles, carrots, bean sprouts, lettuce, and egg. My FPIC and I tried to figure out what the little extra hint of something was in the spring rolls that made them so fresh. We finally concluded that it was a touch of cilantro wrapped up in the rolls that gave it that extra herbal edge.
For our main courses, I ordered a classic Pad Thai Shrimp, which was very tasty. The noodles were stir-fried and coated with a brown sauce, tossed with tofu, egg, green onions, bean sprouts, and ground peanuts on the side. My friend ordered the Pad-See-Ewe, which is also a stir-fried dish of noodles with broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, and egg. My Thai gives generous portions, so both of us were able to take some of our meals home to enjoy later on.
Overall it was a great meal, service was very helpful in recommending dishes, and the food was excellent. The table next to us had ordered a chicken dish that was served in sliced open pineapple. This looked very interesting and extremely good! That’s definitely going to be my order next time!
