Bob and I were introduced to Thai Cuisine Express a little over a year ago by our good friends, Chuck and Rhonda.
See the front window? A True Taste of Thai! If you live in the Asheville area, or are just visiting, you must stop by. This is a complete hole in the wall restaurant, but it is amazing! Bob and I go here about twice a month. There are only 4 booths in the whole restaurant, and your plates never match, but this adds to what makes this place so awesome!! We are on a first name basis with the owner/Chef, Pom. He knows what we want and knows what to leave out and what to add (I get 5 stars...that is super spicy and makes my nose run!). And, while Mate's brother, Russell lived in Asheville, he was also a regular here.
The above is my Cashew Tofu. I branched out this time. For the sake of the blog. I usually get Pineapple Fried Rice (see below) with Tofu or Pa Ram with Tofu. I have yet to get anything bad here. Since we have proved ourselves to Pom, he knows I am serious when I ask for a 5 star meal. He adds extra spice in mine...and I love it!
Bob got Pineapple Fried Rice with Beef. YUM (well, minus the beef!)!!
And, even though we did not catch Bob smiling, he had a great time and a great meal. This is us with Pom. Isn't he cute? I want him to come to my house and cook every night! And, if you come and visit me, I will probably take you to visit him. You will like him, I know!
