EmOn’s Thai Cafe is a restaurant, as the astute reader may surmise, that serves Thai Cuisine. The restaurant has been open under the same ownership since 1996. Whenever I hear something like this regarding a restaurant it is generally without exception a very good sign. I had Blogged about Em-On’s almost five years ago and thought it was very good.
Recently, a couple of dining companions suggested going here for lunch. Why not I thought. If it’s not broken don’t fix it!
We decided to order off the lunch special menu, with soup, spring roll, rice and an entree for either $9.99 or $10.99, a one to two dollar increase from five years ago. I apologize for the quality of the menu pictures. I do not believe the lunch special menu is online.
It was one of the better versions of this soup I have ever eaten. This was richly flavored and delicious. This soup is typically made with coconut milk, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, lemongrass, cilantro, mushrooms and lime juice. If you eat lunch here, ask to substitute this. It will not disappoint.
This looked really good, the curry made red from red curry paste, it’s color from the dried red chiles in it. Lemongrass, baby corn, chicken broth, fish sauce, garlic, coriander and other ingredients provide the complex flavors that make up, according to my dining companions, this delicious curry. A must try next time.
