Kansas City Thai
KCMO might be famous for barbeque, but when you’re craving something a little more exotic, the numerous Thai restaurants have you covered. Get started at Lulu’s Thai Noodle Shop, a funky joint where noodles are king, and every dish is prepared with love from this 17+ year family-owned establishment. The Lulu’s Sampler features Vietnamese spring rolls, crab Rangoon, and veggie and pork dumplings, and it pairs perfectly with their calamari or build-your-own lettuce wraps.
At Tasty Thai you’ll find the Tiger Cried Beef, made with marinated and grilled beef in their famous hot sauce. Try the Thai Buffalo wings deep fried and smothered in sweet chili sauce. Their fried squid is butterflied and deep fried, and the cashew stir-fry is divine.
A Taste of Thailand
Spices Asian Restaurant is a Thai fusion hot spot featuring moo shu summer rolls and grilled squid for their famous starters. Try with ika-fry calamari, basil wings deep fried to crispy perfection, and pho Vietnamese style noodle soup. The pineapple fried rice, royal chicken marinated in garlic and rum, and seafood fried rice with shrimp, scallops and mussels are a must-try.
Head to Thai House for vegetarian dining along with classics. The Mardi Gras shrimp and Thai roasted duck are both popular, but you can’t go wrong with any of Kansas City’s Thai picks.
