Thank you to the editors of Mpls-St. Paul Magazine for naming True Thai Restaurant their Best Thai Restaurant award for 2009! I am doubly grateful to them because the ads we ran in their magazine shortly after we opened helped establish us with Twin Cities' foodies — so much so we stopped running ads this year and yet we are still winning awards thanks to all our loyal fans.
I think this should help put an end to the myth that food critics only give awards to people who advertise in their publications. This is our seventh "best of" award in 2009, and our fifth from a publication we did not advertise in this year.
I'm afraid you'll have to buy a copy of their annual Best of the Twin Cities issue to read about our award, but it's on the newstands now and is filled with great suggestions for where to go for any kind of food you're interested in. And isn't it good to know that there are magazines that give out awards for being best, and not just as a reward for running paid ads?
