Last night I walked over to the Thai Cafe for dinner with a friend. I hadn't been there since the first week it was opened and the food was terrible. Since then many people have told me they love Thai Cafe. I decided to give it another try, and I was delightfully surprised to have a delicious meal.
My friend and I shared tofu panang curry (red curry) and beef pad soo wen (noodles with vegetables). Both dishes were good but the panang curry was really outstanding, especially for a tofu dish. I like tofu but it can be bland and have a weird texture. The tofu in the panang curry was light and airy on the inside and crisp and sweet on the outside. It reminded me of a donut. Yes, a donut. The curry had a nice kick but it wasn't knock your socks off spicy. I'm sure they could make it spicier if a person asked.
The pad soo wen, I think that was the name, was tasty too and the veggies were fresh and crisp, not overcooked.
I look forward to going back. Next time I will try some of the starters. They looked good.
