Centennial seems to be experiencing a surge in Thai restaurants opening in the area. It all started with Lemongrass & Lime Thai Bistro opening in 2018 with street-style food and traditional favorites. Now the cuisine expands with a Summerlin favorite opening a third location at the corner of Farm Road and Durango Drive near Lowe’s Home Improvement. Nittaya’s Secret Kitchen owner Nittaya Parawong plans to open Nittaya’s Little Kitchen in 2020, expanding her menu of stuffed chicken wings, coconut soup, and curries, along with Thai tapas. Parawong also has Block 9 Thai Street Eats near La Strega near South Town Center Drive and the 215 Beltway.
Just this week, Secret of Siam opened in the former home of Novecento pizzeria that closed last March in Centennial Center. Secret of Siam offers lunch specials, a sliding scale of heat attached to its spicy dishes and house special tilapia, charbroiled prawns, and salmon teriyaki dishes. Healthy secret appetizers include crispy spinach tempura, tofu satay, and vegetarian sausage, or diners can opt for pork and shrimp dumplings, fish cakes, and beef jerky.
Also on the way, Thai Spoon at the Centennial Square retail hub plans to open with what it calls “the “Best Pad Thai, hands down!!!,” joining appetizers of pork jerky, crab Rangoon, and fish cake with Thai curry, plus soups and fried rice dishes. Entrees include red, yellow, green, and duck curries, Northern Thai-style noodles, spicy eggplant, catfish pad cha, meat stir-fried with cashew nuts, and pepper garlic choices.
