just spreading the word about a great Thai place I tried on Thursday
A friend and I finally drove out west to 77th and Quivira to a place another friend has been asking me each week if I've been there, b/c she thinks it's incredible and has been going once every week since it opened about 6 or 7 weeks ago. Called Sweet Siam, I have to say, this is the BEST Thai food I've had in KC, and I eat Thai quite often. Had an eggplant melange that was 2-pepper spicy on the lunch menu. It was perfect! Heated well, but not completely overwhelming the dish. Had half of it to bring home so shared that with hubby and son in the evening. They wanted to go back there Immediately, they thought it was so wonderful. Sauces are simply so fresh...this place is a treasure. And yes, they also have a liquor license. I didn't try their cocomut cake for dessert. I guess that was a huge mistake....
My bad, FOTD, I should have prominently put KC in the subj line. I had friends escort 10 Myanmar refugees (Burma) to this place from North of KC....they were so excited when they left this place one evening b/c the chefs would cook 'anything and everything' they remembered from their homeland. I was thrilled for them, b/c I don't find that kind of accomodating attitude at most restaurants, esp. ones that have been favorably reviewed from the local 'foodies' on radio and tv. Usually the opposite occurs.
No, the coconut cake is NOT like any other. I haven't tried yet, but folks with wider minds than mine have said it's unlike anything they've ever tasted, but it's divine. I guess expecting it to be like a traditional coco cake is a HUGE mistake.
