Crazy Spices and Low Prices at Thai It
Published: February 26, 2014
Things fared a lot better with our entrees. I settled for a panang curry, again at a three, and was pleasantly surprised. The portion was huge, and the creamy panang was peppered with dry chile flakes. My lunch partner opted for the garlic chicken with red and green bell peppers and thick strips of onion.
The garlic sauce was bright and aromatic, but also light enough to not overwhelm the vegetables.
The dessert menu has standard mango sticky rice and fried bananas, but I decided to cleanse my palate with a bubble tea. Although I would have preferred a smoother consistency—the ice was a bit too chunky—I could have done much worse with the bubble-filled, sweet avocado drink.
While it’s not earth shattering, Thai It does offer a solid take on Southeast Asian treats at outrageously low prices. Maybe its quirky neighbors are holding Thai It back from attracting hordes of customers, but then again, who wouldn’t want to get their taxes done after noshing on some stir-fry?
