Thai Thai a Hidden Gem

There’s a good chance you’ve never noticed Thai Thai Cuisine, a hidden jewel located in a small business complex near a large housing development. Once you discover it, though, you’ll be glad you did.

Inconspicuous proprietor Jirawan Pavapotago prepares bona fide provisions from her native Thailand. House specialties like pad Thai, pineapple fried rice and drunken noodle (stir-fried wide rice noodles with egg, onion, carrots, red bell peppers and basil leaves) are all dished up with aplomb. Using a variety of ingredients like cardamom, shallots, lemon grass and turmeric, dishes are prepared in varying degrees of spiciness depending on the patron’s preference.

At night, consider a chef special like the roasted duck curry or sweet chili fish with choice of tilapia, flounder or whole snapper topped with pineapple chunks, cashews and a toothsome chili sauce. Be sure to try a refreshing Thai iced tea with your meal.

The restaurant’s modest dining room features elephant-themed wall hangings and seating for about two dozen guests. Table service is consistently graceful and efficient.   
Thai Thai is open for lunch each weekday and dinner seven days a week. And here’s a no-extra-charge bonus tip: A $5.99 weekday lunch special is among the best deals in the area.
