Make your reservations now because as of May 10 — Mother’s Day — True Thai will be open on Sundays!

Over the past few years I have been asked almost daily, when will True Thai be open on Sundays? I finally can answer that question with an exact date: May 10, 2009!

Doors will open at 11 a.m. and close at 10 p.m., and we will be open every Sunday after that except for when Christmas, New Year’s Day or the 4th of July falls on a Sunday.

I hope this news excites you as much as it does me. True Thai on Sunday is an idea whose time has come!

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.

Lose weight the Thai way!

Everyone knows about Jared Fogel, the guy who lost 245 lbs. by eating Subway sandwiches. Not so many people seem to know that Jared also did a lot of walking!

As a nurse I know that exercise is the most important part of any diet plan. Even though I eat mostly Thai food (which is much much healthier than Subway sandwiches) and was physically active, I was still overweight.

Then last November I started working out with Carla at Los Campeones Gym just a block east of True Thai. I have lost 33 lbs. since then even though I’m eating as much food as before.

Here is your True Thai diet:
Eat whatever you like on our menu except the Sebastian Joe’s ice cream! No pop unless it’s diet pop. That’s it!

That and after you’re done eating you have to walk east to the Mississippi River, cross the bridge and then walk back. It’s a very nice walk and the Mississippi River is lovely no matter what time of year it is.
P.S. And a special thanks to the True Thai chefs for helping me to watch my portions! Are True Thai entrees too big? Not if you ask for a takeout box!

Party Room

Now that I'm finally blogging again I'm trying to remember all the questions I've been asked about the new addition. So far there is no charge to reserve the party room.

So if you have a large group and you'd like to reserve the party room, just call the restaurant and let us know when you want the room.
