Tucked away next to the new Di Blasi’s Bakery, in what used to be the
World Café and right near the Shell gas station, is Chesterland’s
newest cultural dining experience, My Thai. Although the menu is a bit on the
pricey side for high school students, with entrées that start at about
$11 each, the money is WELL worth it. My Thai offers an experience unlike any
other with their ethnic atmosphere and dishes to die for.
If it’s an appetizer you’re hungry for, look no further than My Thai’s dumplings. These ten onion-garlic-shrimp-filled balls come fried or steamed with a sweet chili sauce on the side. I suggest the fried dumplings; they’re delicious.
For a hearty entrée, I enjoyed the Special Pan Fried Noodles with chicken, a restaurant favorite at $10.99. Most dishes come in a choice of mild, medium, hot, or very hot style. I’m not one for overly spicy or hot food, so I went with mild and it was delectable. Although the dish was filling, I cleaned my plate entirely. Another customer favorite is the Drunken Noodles, which come with your choice of chicken, tofu, or a seafood combo. Don’t worry; eating this dish won’t get you drunk in the slightest. If it’s a lighter entrée you’re looking for, try the apple or cucumber salads, which are also tasty and more health-conscious, along with being easier on your wallet.
For desert, you must try the Banana Tempura. If you’re anything like me and don’t even like bananas, this desert is still for you. The bananas come warm and fried with a solid serving of ice cream. Between the cold ice cream and the warm bananas, this desert is a hit.
I give My Thai a five-star review. The service is great; the food is bomb; the atmosphere is exotic. If you haven’t given Chesterland’s newest dining experience a chance, I strongly suggest you try it.
