In the northwestern sector of Indianapolis is a restaurant that offers a taste of the East and a real change of pace from the many Chinese restaurants in Indianapolis. The Thai House Restaurant has a substantial menu featuring delicious and authentic Thai and Vietnamese dishes you will love even if you’re not a vegetarian or a vegan. Every mouthful is an adventure in dining out.
The Thai House Restaurant now has an updated menu with lots of new, intriguing additions, such as the Pineapple Fried Rice and Spicy Padd Ped, and the low-carb Padd Thai Woon Seen, a wonderful dish full of flavor, not calories, made with glass noodles, chicken, bean sprouts and red peppers in a cilantro and garlic flavored fish sauce.
Be sure to sample the Thai House traditional entrees, too, such as the Padd Kee Mow, made with chicken, pork or shrimp in an aromatic stir-fry with banana peppers, onions, sweet Thai basil, garlic and fried wide noodles.
Curry is an essential element in Thai cooking, and this popular Northwest Indianapolis restaurant has a nice list of authentic curry dishes. Choose from their Massaman Curry, with beef or chicken and potatoes in a delectable coconut milk-yellow curry sauce with dried chili peppers; the Green Curry, which features chicken or beef with tender bamboo shoots, succulent eggplant, red peppers and sweet Thai basil in a green or red curry and coconut milk base; or perhaps the Pannang Curry with green beans and bay leaf.
Vegetarian meals are seemingly endless, with the distinctive taste of Thai permeating each and over dish. There are spring rolls, fried tofu with peanut sauce, stir-fried noodles with eggplant, vegetables, rice and eggs, bean thread noodles and more.
Yummy-looking extras at the Thai House Restaurant include the Thai salad, their deep-fried crab roll with a sweet-hot chili sauce, spicy Thai chicken wings and fried calamari. Beverages and desserts are exotic too, at the Thai house. Try their sweet sticky rice with mango and fabulous Thai ice tea.
Restaurants that bring the authentic flavors of faraway lands to the Midwest bread basket are responsible, in no small measure, for expanding the hearts and minds of Indianapolis society, if not necessarily their midsections. Feed your head soon.
