Dear Anna!

As part of my Thai New Year’s resolution to blog more often, I’d like to encourage True Thai customers to e-mail me their questions about our menu.

As a Public Health nurse I realize that eating out can be a problem for people with diabetes or food allergies. It’s tricky to figure out what’s in restaurant food if you’re on a special diet for any reason.

One very common concern is monosodium glutamate, or M.S.G. In True Thai’s kitchen M.S.G. is just one of the three sisters of Asian cooking (salt, sugar, M.S.G.). So yes there is M.S.G. in Thai food, but all you have to do is ask and we’ll be glad to prepare your meal without M.S.G.

In fact, you should always feel free to ask your server questions. Each entree at True Thai is prepared after you order it, so making changes is no problem. And while we have lots of vegetarian items on our menu, we understand that not all vegetarians play by the same rules!

Thai food is healthy food because we do our best to make healthy food taste good.
