Thai Restaurants in New Orleans
 

Thai Restaurants in New Orleans

Louisiana is known for its seafood and spice, which makes New Orleans the perfect spot for delicious Thai restaurants to flourish. Throughout the city, you’ll find bean sprouts, egg noodles, minced pork, spongy fish balls, fried garlic and peanuts creating a harmony of flavor and texture. The spices are not to be toyed with, as true Thai cooking involves only the freshest, hottest chiles that can bring the toughest Western palate to break a sweat. To bring the cooling sensations, much of the food is graced with loads of herbs, lime juice, ginger, fish sauce and lemongrass, which are tossed into dishes unabashedly.

On the sweeter side, New Orleans Thai restaurants offer delicious, freshly-made beverages ranging from honey-ginger teas to Thai iced coffee blended with sweetened condensed milk and cardamom. Desserts are also on the decadent side, with offerings like rice flour dumplings filled with sugary lotus pastes or coconut custards.

New Orleans is home to a number of local Thai restaurants that transport your taste buds straight to Bangkok. Traditional Thai restaurants offer staple dishes such as curries, drunken noodles and various whole fish dishes. Others combine traditional Thai techniques with local, Louisiana flavors. Any time you visit a Thai restaurant in New Orleans you can expect a wealth of options, excellent service, and some of the most delicious food in the region.
