Thai Spice

Thai Spice

I was having one of those days, cruising down Ft. Union looking for something new for lunch.  Of course there are hundreds of options on that road, and finding Thai Spice was a bit of a trick.  I must have drove by it countless times in the past.  It was a red brick strip shopping center round 850 East in Midvale.  It caught the corner of my eye, and since I was hankering for some Thai flavor, I rolled the dice.

Walking in, I have to say I was not impressed.  There was only one table occupied and it was 12:30 in the afternoon, right in the middle of what was supposed to be the lunch rush.  There was one person who was sitting in the back looking at his cell phone and that was the extent of what I saw from the employees the entire time.  Nevertheless, he got up right away, showed me my table, and was fast and prompt in making sure I always had water, and that my food came out fast.  That’s really all you can ask for when it comes to service right?

Curry Puffs

Like most typical Thai diners in the valley, their menu had a few appetizers with a list of lunch specials to go along with them.  I tried the curry puffs for my appetizer.  They were tasty but nothing that I got hot and bothered over.  The portions were pretty decent.

Massamun Curry

Massaman Curry

From the lunch menu I order the massaman curry which you see on all Thai menus.  For me it is the barometer in judging Thai restaurants.  If they don’t have good massaman curry, then they aren’t worth my time.  I really enjoyed this version of massaman curry for several reason.  For starters, they avoided something that is somewhat of a pet peeve of mine when it comes to curry bowls, and that is when the veggies are cut too thick.  This dish had some onion, potato, and peanuts.  The potato were pearl potatoes that were peeled and boiled just right.  The peanuts were whole, and added a nice flavor and crunchy element to the dish.  The chicken was tender and portioned just right.  Reflecting back on it now, this curry was actually really good.  I had enough rice to eat along side the curry and left happy.

Go to Thai Spice if you want cheap and quick no frills Thai food.  The lunch specials came in about $8 for the final total.
