You have to love a restaurant close to your workplace that does quick and delicious take-out. In Liberty, Tasty Thai fits the bill.
Just off the busy intersection of I-35 and Highway 152, tucked behind a starbucks, you can enjoy a nice sit-down lunch or dinner. Or you can just call ahead and pick it up. With locations on Metcalf and two in the Northland, you can find it whether you’re north or south.
I’m a big fan of Tasty Thai’s yellow curry with chicken. The soupy entree contains potatoes and spring peas and emanates a wonderfully full aroma. I consider it a pretty healthy choice if you don’t over-do it on the rice.
The fried rice is also a very good choice. The seasoning is robust but not overpowering and the portion size is very generous – even as the lunch special.
We ordered the appetizer sampler which didn’t quite perform as well as the entrees. It offered egg rolls, pot stickers, shrimp purse, Poo Thong, golden triangle and shrimp dumplings. The problem was, aside from the egg rolls, it was hard to tell the other stuff apart. Nothing on the platter was bad, but nothing really stood out either.
I keep trying to talk myself into venturing out and trying their stir-fry or maybe a noodle dish. But I just love that curry so much, I keep going right back.
