Covering Traditional Thai With Velveeta!
The title of this entry should really be “Covering Traditional Thai with Velveeta Cheese is smackyomomma GOOD!” I have been involved in many discussions about totally Americanized Pad Thai vs. more authentic Pad Thai. After visiting Thai Village the non-traditional like yo momma made mac-N-Cheese or just straight up covered leftovers with cheese, in my opinion, wins the debate hands down.
We went to Thai Village on 81st and Lewis for lunch this week expecting to order some Thai style food. However, like I always do, I asked the server the question, “whats good… whats different.” At Thai Village I was surprised to hear back, “Pad Thai with Cheese.” I could not believe what I was hearing. This dish is their version of Pad Thai with lots of cheese mixed in. After hearing the description I responded, “you mean like Mac-n-cheese?” With a laugh and smile he responded, yes!
I was surprised when my dish came out the first thing I could smell was the peanuts. I asked for the medium heat expecting a perfect balance of cheese, fire, nut and cilantro that would hit my pallet in layers. The dish came out exactly how it tasted in my mind imagining cheesy, spicy pad Thai with a high note of peanuts and cilantro. To say the least it hit the spot and I will be returning soon for another go. I hope you will give it a try.
I will also be back to try their regular Pad Thai dish! But, for now the Pad Thai with Cheese has my heart!
