If you’re looking for some tasty Thai food in Ithaca, I recommend checking out Taste of Thai. Located on the Ithaca Commons, Taste of Thai offers a variety of delicious Thai dishes.
To start off I ordered a Thai iced tea. These drinks are one of my weaknesses, and they are the perfect accompaniment to spicy Thai dishes. The sweet tea and the creamy milk cool down the palate, getting you ready for the next bite.
Lara and I decided to share a couple appetizers and an entrée. First up was Poh Pia Tod—Thai spring rolls. They had a nice, crispy exterior and were filled with vegetables and glass noodles. They came with a sweet chili dipping sauce.
We also shared Yum Nua—a spicy beef salad with grilled slices of flank steak with onion, cucumber, and tomato in a spicy lime dressing. Taste of Thai has a spiciness rating from one to five on any spicy dishes. Lara said her limit was a two, based off her former experiences with their curry dishes. But the two for the beef salad was still pretty mild—both of us could have gone spicier, but we still enjoyed the salad.
For the entrée we went for a classic Pad Thai. It was served with thin rice noodles, chicken, shrimp, chives, and bean sprouts. We added a nice squeeze of lime and some crushed peanuts and devoured this tasty noodle dish.
Taste of Thai was a wonderful dining experience. For great Thai food in Ithaca, it’s definitely worth a visit.
