Location: SW 9th and Alder
Description: Sawasdee is one of the oldest, and one of the most popular Thai carts on the scene, simply because they are so good. Fresh ingredients, big portions and a deft touch give them balanced and satisfying offerings. Where some Thai carts go a bit overboard with the soy and grease, Sawasdee has a lighter touch.
Sawasdee makes standards like red, yellow and green curries, fried rice, noodle dishes and stir fries. They also are one of the few Thai carts to offer both white or brown rice. I’m particularly fond of their fried rice with pineapple and cashew.
Oh, and they are often open on Saturdays!
