Inspired by Bangkok street food and Southern Thai-style dishes, the Arts District has a new casual dining destination, open for lunch and dinner.
D E Thai Kitchen takes over the shuttered corner site of Rock’N’oodles on Third Street, a few steps from Charleston Boulevard.
Filling approximately 900 square feet and featuring a Bangkok-born chef and owner, appetizers include $7 tom yum soup, $6 chicken satay or coconut shrimp, $5 crab Rangoon, and $4 fried tofu.
Rice and noodle options include pad Thai, pad see eiw, and drunken noodles, plus spicy basil, ginger garlic, and garlic pepper among the plate dishes, with the option of adding pork, chicken, beef, crispy pork, veggies, tofu, and shrimp or squid.
Red, green, and yellow curries join house specials of pork tom yum noodle soup, crab-meat fried rice, and the “Beef Boat Noodle Soup,” created with “Thai-style rice noodle soup with edible blood, anise, bean sprout, and meat balls.”
The restaurant is also offering delivery in the neighborhood.
