Thai Avenue in Zeeland was the spicy experience I have been looking for. Filled with flavor, the Pad Garlic dish was full of stir-fried mushrooms, garlic, broccoli, carrots and tender beef overflowing with brown sauce and rice. The dish was large enough for two people to share and still have leftovers. If spicy is your thing, look no further than Thai Avenue.

Let me start by saying that I lived in Thailand for 3 1/2 years. Since then, I’ve been searching for a Thai dish that overcomes me with nostalgia. I hadn’t had much luck until I ordered the kao soi from Thai Avenue. It’s a dish that originates from Northern Thailand based in a milky, yellow curry broth, laced with rice noodles and other ingredients like pickled mustard greens, coriander and galangal. Every bite felt like home.

Thai Avenue is great! I was a bit hesitant to try it at first since I haven’t had Thai food before, but the customer service was outstanding and the food was delicious; it’s so authentic. I had Pad See Eew (which may not sound appetizing, but it was delicious). It is stir-fried, thick rice noodles with egg and Chinese broccoli in a sweet brown soy sauce.
