The problem I have with Thai food is that I can never decide what I want because I just want it all.
The other night I went to Savanh Thai Kitchen, which is behind the Waffle House on Opelika Road.
I called in and had my order to go. Although I didn’t stay at the restaurant to eat, I did get a glance at the interior dining area, and it was pretty lovely, a nice place to have a dinner with family, friends or whomever.
But because I was dining alone that evening, I chose to eat from the comfort of home and in the company of my cats.
I ordered Larb, a salad, and Panang, curry.
The salad ($8) is your choice of meat — ground beef, ground chicken or tofu — which is cooked in spices, mint leaves, green onions, lime juice and chili peppers. It’s also served with crispy cabbage.
The curry ($12) I purchased is made of coconut milk, red curry with basil, bell pepper, sliced lime leaves and your choice of chicken, pork, tofu, beef or seafood.
For both, you are able to select your level of heat.
I love spicy food, but I didn’t want to go too crazy having not eaten at this restaurant before. So I chose a level one for the salad and a level two for the curry.
I also picked chicken for my choice of meat for both dishes.
The salad was more filling than I thought it was going to be, and every bite was wonderful. I tasted the curry, and it also was excellent. I’m really looking forward to finishing that later, you guys.
I also ordered a Savanh Thai House Tea ($3) to go but ended up not getting it with my pick-up. Though, that’s partly my fault for not checking before I left (I was starving and was too excited to eat), but I am still curious on how the house tea is.
Overall, I’m very pleased with my experience there, and I’m planning to return to try other dishes. The menu is pretty robust with options and flavors, so there’s something for everyone to love.
