Albany: Anyone tried Agaligo Thai Cuisine's crab Rangoon or kid fried rice?

  • 3

If there's a sign on the wall saying 'we serve free range children' parents might make sure the kids stay at the table.

This restaurant just opened in the old Thep Naree. I was going to give it a try, but Thai isn't a favorite cuisine of mine, they are closed Sunday, and nothing on the menu is jumping out at me other than the kids menu with kid fried rice on it.

The crab rangoon seemed interesting until I read the description "Crispy imitation crabmeat blended with cream cheese and celery wrapped in wanton skins, served with sweet & sour sauce.:"

While wanton skins might be something, imitation crab ... not so much.

There are a few respectible enough yelp reviews. There seem to be daily specials.

A few out of the ordinary options

- Apple salad - Sliced green apple with fresh shrimp, chicken slice, crisp red onions, red bell pepper, chili paste, in our special Thai salad dressing.

- Apple Pla - Grilled salmon with sliced green apple, red onions, Thai chili and lemongrass in lime dressing

- Jungle curry - Avocado, bamboo shoot, red & green bell peppers, snow peas, green bean, broccoli and basil leaves in red curry sauce.

- Iced lemongrass juice

There are rules about the ice in drinks - (Thai Ice Tea and Iced Lemongrass Juice with no ice charged more $1.00, less ice $0.75)

'Agaligo' means 'Timeless',

Anyway, I'm no Thai expert so I thought i'd ask.

  1. Sounds like the crab rangoon I have seen elsewhere, usually in American restaurants with Asian aspirations. I believe it was a Trader Vic's dish. Not sure.

      Crab Rangoon was popularized by if not invented at Trader Vic's. I don't think any of the appetizers on that menu are Thai.
