Eats: Thai

  • Chef Suwana Cry knows the world of cooking: She’s served up her food at restaurants in Thailand, Indonesia, Africa and the United States. Xpress readers are grateful she’s brought her dishes to Asheville. Tucked among the staple curries, soups and noodle dishes, Thai Orchid offers authentic Thai dishes and encourages diners to try something new. Hor Mok, a Thai curry custard dish, can’t be had just anywhere. Catfish, which Thai restaurants don’t often serve despite the prevalence of the fish throughout Asia, graces the menu at Thai Orchid and can be added to numerous curries. Add it in and eat up. — E.P.
