Long day at work? Don't feel like taking out the pots and pans for the traditional tuna casserole?
You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Pinole Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
At 2701 Pinole Valley Rd., is guaranteed to take your taste buds on an exploration of traditional and fresh Thai dishes that are anything but bland.
Enjoy a warm and cozy environment, tasteful decor and the many friendly faces of Thai Spice as you indulge in the popular appetizer delights of Chicken Satay ($7.50) and Fresh Spring Rolls ($7.50).
Recommendations? Well, while every dish is deliciously unique, personal favorites include the creamy chicken coconut soup (Tom Kha Gai -$9, with prawns $11) which soothes the hungry soul, a noodle dish mixed with the right combination of fried egg, ground peanuts, bean sprouts, green onion and crisp tofu (Pad Thai Noodles - $8) and, to complete the evening, juicy eggplant and thinly-sliced pork sauteed and drizzled in the chef's specialty sauce (Pad Ma-Kur - $7 lunch, $8.50 dinner).
Save room for the Fried Banana with Ice Cream ($5.50) — the perfect ending dish of palate perfection.
Intrigued? With this menu, any spice is the right spice.
