Thai Nakorn's open
For those of you who care about the whole Thai Nakorn business ... it's open now in Stanton:
Four of us went for a late lunch today...Only the location has changed...the menu is the same...the staff is the same...the food is as wonderful as it always was...the best nam sod with crispy rice I have ever eaten, the rich and spicy chicken and beef penang, the piquant beef with basil, the BBQ catfish (this may be the best Thai dish in all of SoCal), and outstanding sticky rice and mango...all so good and just the same as before!
The owner said that business has been slow since the Monday opening but some of the regulars are starting to come back (we are included in that group) They still intend to rebuild the Garden Grove location...all of the plans are done...but permits and other small problems may cause delays in its completion.
Thai Nakorn is back!!...and as good as ever! They have a great location...the NW corner of Beach and Chapman and it is worth a visit for the best Thai in OC if not all of Southern California!
For those who might be too lazy to click on an outside link:
Thai Nakorn is now officially open for business. Permit issues have been resolved, and they're able to serve food. They're operating under signs that say "Thai Dishes," but that should change shortly.
Here's the info: Thai Nakorn, 11951 Beach Blvd., Stanton. 714-799-203.
Hours: 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fridays through Sundays.
Although we didn't have a chance to stop in, we just drove by and the signage is now all Thai Nakorn.
It's in the strip mall, northwest corner of Chapman and Beach.
Alright, it's been a LOOOONG time since I craved Thai food and have been waiting a long time for this place to open back up again so I can figure out what everyone's raving about. I'm still not hankering for Thai food yet for some reason, but maybe this place will give me a kick start.
