Mmmm, fish cakes!

True Thai's customers love our appetizers but seem to order the sames ones all the time. Spring rolls, egg rolls, satay and shrimp are very popular. Our Southeast Asian customers love our Bangkok Crispy Beef, and guys in general like chicken wings.

Our customers who order fish cakes are harder to categorize. The only thing they have in common is the fact that they keep ordering fish cakes each time they come in. It is clear that they love True Thai's Royal Thai Fish Cakes (#9 on our menu).

It may be that you have never heard of fish cakes. Many people have not. But if you put "fish cakes" into Google, you will get almost 8 million matches! And no, they do not think you are searching for a cake with a picture of a fish on it!

Fish cakes remind me of my home in Chanthaburi. When Anna and her brothers would come home from school, fish cakes were our favorite after-school snack. Our mom's were best because she made the best fish cakes and the best fish cake sauce and that is why I use my mom's recipe for True Thai's Royal Fish Cakes.

It makes me happy that the food on our menu makes our customers happy.

You all like the same food I do!

I think that is the basis for a long and healthy relationship.
