Cross-Posted from Calgary is Awesome.
CIA's own Angela had sent me an email urging me to try Delicious Thai months ago, but I never got around to stopping by until after a recent trip to Thailand.
Delicious Thai is a tiny, clean, family-run place that serves up an extensive list of soups, curries, noodles and stir-fries, including lots of vegetarian-friendly options. To help take a bit of the guesswork out of ordering Thai, they also have a few table d'hôte options - great for trying a few different dishes and saving a bit of money! You are also given the option of having your dishes mild, medium, spicy or extra spicy. B. and I had the Vegetarian Dinner for Two ($35.50), but the portions are so big that it could've easily fed one more.
We started with the vegetarian spring rolls, which were filled with a crisp mix of cabbage, carrot, taro, water chestnut and other vegetables and served with a sweet-and-sour dipping sauce.
For mains we had Pad Thai, as well as Thai red curry with tofu served with rice. The Pad Thai was good, though a little on the sweet side, and I really enjoyed all the different flavours coming into play in the red curry (Mmmm Thai basil...)
Although we were stuffed by the time we managed to finish the noodles and curry, my favourite dish of the night was definitely dessert - sweetened sticky rice shaped into hearts, dotted with a few grains of toasted rice for a contrast in texture, served with sliced mango and coconut milk.
While I enjoyed all the dishes individually, I don't think I would order the set menu again as altogether the menu was very carb-heavy. Not that I have anything against carbs, but to eat so much in one sitting was a little too filling and heavy. Otherwise, the service at Delicious Thai was very friendly and it was nice to have a little reminder of my recent trip. Thanks for telling me about it, Angela!
