THAI LOTUS - Tequesta, FL

On a cooler, possibly rainy day, Thai food always sounds good to Brandt and I.  The spiciness combined with coconut and peanut sauces..Ughh... that's my kind of comfort food!  However, not every Thai restaurant will bring me to such utopia.  You have to find the right one.  Our friends Carl and Keir, took us to Thai Lotus last week and it will be a place we will for sure make many stops to in the future.
Thai Lotus is located in Tequesta and is tucked away in a very quiet shopping center, I almost want to say abandoned shopping center.  However, I am not sure what happens during the day there since we did visit during dinner time.  During season, as with all restaurants in Palm Beach County, we did have to wait about 10 minutes to be seated.  Once seated, we were not greeted for quite sometime.  So I recommend going with friends who you want to talk to you and enjoy being with because you will get a lot of conversation in :)  Even with the slow service we all had a great night.
Once our server finally arrived, we started the night with a few Kirin Lights.  Sorry, no Liquor here, only beer and wine.
We ordered the Thai sampler for the table as a appetizer.  It included a combination of spring rolls, fried wontons, chicken satay, curry puffs, and steamed dumplings.  The steamed dumplings were my favorite.


Brandt ordered the Chicken Pad Thai-Extra Spicy.  He was definitely feeling the heat by the time he finished his dish. For some reason, that is enjoyable to him. I never understood that. Either way, it was tasty.


I ordered my favorite,Chicken Panang Curry.  Delish!


And Keir ordered the Red Curry


We were stuffed at that point, so we were unable to try dessert, but we did get to experience a local donut place in Jupiter the next morning.  Look for it, in a future post.

The food at Thai Lotus is authentic and tasy and they do have an extensive menu including a wide variety of sushi.  A for sure place to try when a laid back night is in order.  Nothing Trendy here, but you will enjoy a great meal. Even a great place for just take out.  Thai Lotus is Thai-riffic!!
