Cafe Siam – Delightful New Thai Place
I took a chance on a new local Thai place with some coworkers and we were pleasantly surprised. They have a menu with lots of choices, and different prices for lunch entrees and dinner entrees. Bu tthe best deal is the lunch special, which gives you a choice of two entrees. It comes with appetizer or salad, soup, and dessert for only $8.95.
Our choices that day were chicken pad thai or sweet and sour beef. I chose the pad thai and thought it was delicious, with plenty of sauce, tender chicken and egg bits, and of course bean sprouts and some ground peanuts. It was a plentiful helping that I couldn't finish. A friend ordered the beef and thought it was delicious as well, it included some very fresh-looking red and green peppers and onions in a reddish sauce with a side of rice.
Here are pics of two of their dishes:
Chicken Pad Thai from Mealme.com (my favorite)
I thought it a little odd that they didn't have any limes when I asked for one, but other than that the meal was wonderful. The salad was small but with a tasty dressing which tasted peanutty and with a ginger flavor. The soup was good, with ground chicken and cilantro and rice. On another visit I have tried a coconut chicken soup with a little bite to it that was also delicious without being too rich. The wontons were ok, with just a little bit of filling, but the curry puffs are amazing, with some sweet potato and a lot of savory curry flavor. The dessert was a nice touch, it a small coconut custardy pudding. They also have ice cream if you prefer that.
Since my first visit I have been back here many times, and I love it. Service is great and the staff are very friendly.
