True Thai will be open during our regular hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, but will be closed all day Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is a very special holiday at True Thai. Chuck, True Thai's co-owner, served in uniform in Vietnam, a war that impacted the families of our employees from Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. If it were not for the Vietnam War, there would be almost no Southeast Asians in the United States today.
War changes everything.
Please drive safely this weekend and enjoy this time off with your family and friends. And, if you lost a member of your family or a friend to war, remember them and honor their sacrifice.

Weird Asia News reports on pizza toppings in Asia.
Have you ever bitten into a pizza made not of bread but cookie dough? Step right in to Mr. Pizza and order the Grand Prix. Its toppings include sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raisins.Shrimp injected with mayonnaise is a popular topping in Japan, and Koreans like Swiss cheese on their pizzas. I think the Japanese restaurant, Strawberry Cones, has completely reinvented pizza:
Of course, they also throw shrimp and potato on top, and serve it with a blueberry dipping sauce!
And for your choice of toppings, you have a choice between the following:
1. 7-Veggie Variety: asparagus, corn, paprika, parsley, eggplant, zucchini, onions, and pizza sauce
2. Milakoreno: hamburger, bologna sausage, fresh tomatoes, broccoli, onions, mayo, parsley, and pizza sauce
3. 5-Cheese Variety: Camembert, Samsoe, Gouda, Steppen, Parmesan, along with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, parsley, and pizza sauce
4. Fluffy Prince and ChikichikiTeri: Charcoal fire-grilled chicken, egg, parsley, mayo, and teriyaki sauce.I think you will be happy to learn that True Thai has no plans to start serving pizza!
