Thai food in Westchester is so not good enough for anyone. Everyone's like Sripraphai! Sripraphai! which I have never been to, but I just feel like I've never had "good" Thai food. I LOVE what I know to be Thai food that I've had (Siam Orchid, Garlic and Pepper, etc.)but I do feel like... inadequate.
So, of course, after reading these "sooooooo good!" reviews on Chowhound about Tangerine Thai, I had to try it. I had been to Garlic and Pepper which used to occupy what is now Tangerine Thai, but everyone was saying how much better it was!
So, of course everything is an excuse to gather a bunch of people and go out. Last week, we went to Tangerine Thai for a friend's birthday! My family came out as well. And we ordered a bunch of stuff... things we've had before and new things toooooo!
They really redid the inside too! The walls are this like neon-ish yellow green and it looks like a real restaurant and not just a dingy old bar :-)
We started off with Chicken Satay... surprisingly alll of the chicken dishes were so moist!
My brother loves Curry Puffs... and they were delish!
Duck Salad with pineapple, cashew nuts, carrot, pepper, onions in spicy lime dressing.... never had anything like this was it was good!
This KKK-hat shaped Rice was at first cute, and then kinda weird.
Amanda got the Ginger Fish... which she didn't like because A). The head was still on it, and B). The fish itself was quite bland. And I agree. But the veggies were super gingered up and tasty!
My mom of course got the Green Curry because that's what she always gets... this was the BEST dish of the night! It was so good! At first it tastes rich, creamy, and sweet, and then the spice kicks in!
My brother's Thai BBQ Chicken. The sauce was a peanutty marinage that was very salty, but the chicken was SUPER DUPER JUICY!!!!
I got the Sautéed Krapow (how do you pronounce that? Crap! OW!)with shrimp, Thai basil, chili, garlic, bell peppers, onions... This one too was really really good, but the flavor was very strong. Not really just salty, but it just kinda kicks you in the face!
My mom also got the Spicy Glass Noodles with Shrimp and Chicken...
Can I just say that Tangerine Thai does spicy really well! If you ask for it spicy, you will DIE so just stick with the regular spiciness cuz it was plenty spicy for me!
