A vintage review from one of our patrons

Thanks to Doug Mack for this online review of True Thai Restaurant that dates all the way back to our opening in 2004!

When Americans speak of comfort food, the items contained within the category are generally agreed to be chicken noodle soup, meatloaf, grilled cheese sandwiches and other unthreatening selections from the Stereotypical Midwestern Cookbook, 1958 edition. Comfort food, by the culturally-accepted definition, is bland, usually warm (although I supposed Jell-O qualifies) and made up of a minimum of ingredients.

I’ll have none of that. For me, the ultimate comfort food is number 34 at my local Thai restaurant, True Thai. Number 34 is also known, more descriptively, as Pineapple Curry; by way of introduction, the menu offers this helpful explanation: “Highly spiced pineapple and coconut make this curry a sweet adventure.”

-- Professor Yeti

For the record, Pineapple Curry (#34) is one of my favorites too!
