A recent visit to the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania area prompted a dinnertime visit to Thai Place (700 Nutt Road, Phoenixville Plaza Suite #730, Phoenixville, PA 19460). The restaurant was easy to locate in a strip mall and offered ample parking. The spotless dining room was decorated in a creative array of Thai craftmanship, consisting of pottery, woodwork and paintings.
Having eaten at many Thai restaurants (one of my favorite styles of food), I thought this would be just another healthy and tasty Asian meal. Little did I know, it would turn out to be the BEST Thai food experience I have ever had.
An aficionado of Southeast Asian salads, I placed my standard order of the Beef, Papaya and Shrimp Salads. The Yum Nua Yang (beef salad) was composed of thinly-sliced-and-grilled beef, red onion, lemon, cilantro, roast-grounded rice and Thai sauce on a bed of lettuce. The Som Tum (papaya salad) was a delicious concoction of green papaya, tomatoes, string beans and peanuts infused with Thai sauce. The The Plah Goong (shrimp salad) was made with shrimp which had been cooked in chili paste, lemon, onion, scallion and Thai sauce then laid on a bed of lettuce.
The flavors were exquisite, the ingredients were fresh, the portions were generous and the cost was very affordable. All of this contribute to my strongest recommendation for this gem of a culinary delight!
