|Beware these are very addicting!!!|
Yayyy and finally cause the first location is soooooo tiny. Think it seats about max 20 people. The sister location, Khao San Road isn't much bigger either but one thing they all have in common is that the food is absolutely DELICIOUS, which is the most important thing of all.
I love the food at both the old location of Sukho Thai and the sister location, Khao San Road.
When I got an invite to a private opening for their new location I got super excited since I love love love their food. But what got me even more excited was that I can eat anything off the menu for FREEEEEEEEEEEEE=) It was music to my ears. We all know how much I love to eat so hearing the words 'food' and 'free' in the SAME sentence is a dream come true to me. Especially when it's yummy food.
The new location for Sukho Thai is perfect. It's located in the financial district so not too far of a walk from the station and parking wise well I didn't have any problems today finding parking so it was good for me. The restaurant was spacious and the decor is rustic with the brick wall yet sleek and modern looking with the black decor.
First off gotta order have my Thai ice tea.
We started off with appetizers.
At the top of the page are shrimp chips with tamarind sauce. Crunchy and sweet. Perfect snack to munch on while waiting for your food. They were right. It was addicting. Kept crunching away like there was no tomorrow. All I need is my TV and I can eat these chips all day long.
Next were the spring rolls served with their homemade sweet and sour garlic sauce. Crispy exterior with veggies and noodles on the inside. I'm not really a big fan of spring rolls cause most of them are vegetarian but this surprisingly was delightful.
Next is the tom yum kung. I would have to say one of the best soup I have ever tasted. Herby and savory with a nice lil kick that just kinda sneaks up on you. I ordered a small since I figured I should save my stomach for all the other food. Dang should've ordered a large instead. Next time no small bowl for me.
|Need to order a large bowl next time. So so so yummy.|
|Hey look there's another shrimp hiding under all that garnish.|
Here is the gaeng phed (have no clue how you pronounce this always have to point at the menu). I found this to be a bit too sweet and creamy for me.
The beef was cooked well and the squash was delicious.
I ordered the SukhoThai pad thai with chicken. It was pleasant but again a bit on the sweet side. The portion was pretty generous.
Last is the gaeng panang (again do not know how to pronounce it). This was also a tad too sweet but I still enjoyed it.
Although a few dishes were a bit sweet but with a few minor tweaks I can see this place being another hit just like their predecessors. Even though it is 2 times bigger than the other restaurants I definitely see a long lineup still. Tomorrow will be their grand opening so go there as early as you can or you might end up waiting for at least an hour or maybe even more.
