I figured I better get some Thai food on my blog because I swear it's everyone's favorite cuisine. I'm more of a North/South American, European, & Indian food type gal, so I had to check out Urbanspoon for the list of top Thai places in Utah County.
And here we landed at Thai Drift!
Don't mistake the above paragraph for me not liking Thai food. I do I do.
Spring Rolls $5.99
These were only okay for me.
I enjoyed the sweet & sour sauce, but the roll tasted like I was dipping a lettuce roll; not a lot of flavors goin' on. I bet they don't always taste like that....
Pumpkin Curry $9.49
Wow. This pumpkin curry was fabulous, too sweet, but still pretty enjoyable. The sweetness fits right in for Utah Thai food I'm sure of it... The beef was tender, and we were both so excited to see big chunks of pumpkin. I thought the pumpkin would only be in the creamy part of the broth, but the large cubes added a special element to this dish.
Galanga Coconut Soup (Tom Kai Gai) w/ tofu $9.49
And double wow! I ordered this dish because I had watched a particular episode of Master Chef on Hulu where Monti was stuck with ingredients that Christine had picked out. She made an untraditional Tom Kai Gai, so naturally, I had to order it here at Thai Drift. The flavor of this soup was very well balanced and delicious. They give you a big bowl, too, so the leftovers were even better the next day.
Right: Sweet Rice & Mango $4.99
I love a simple, creamy, sweet rice, especially paired with mango.
The interior of Thai Drift wasn't the cleanest. It also felt like a stage set,
but overall, we both enjoyed our meals.
I'm excited to add Thai food to my regular lineup.
What is your favorite Thai restaurant? More importantly, where should I avoid?
