I first saw the Eathai sign go up about 3 months before it actually opened. Something about the logo just spoke to me and I was immediately interested. Was it going to be just another neighborhood Thai restaurant to swing by after a busy day to pick up some Pad Thai or Green Curry? That would have been fine. I love American Thai food. Flashback to about 6 months earlier: I was lucky enough to travel through Vietnam, Cambodia and finally, Thailand. I was in a bus crossing the border into Thailand on the same day the Thai military declared martial law. I remember waking up in my cheap Cambodian hotel wondering if I should head back to the airport and go home. I'm so glad I didn't. I saw a huge military presence but everything with the locals going about their day to day lives was status quo. We stopped at a gas station a few hours west of Bangkok and there was a food stand. I had minced chicken, the spiciest food I've ever had, with a runny egg on rice. I ate it on a styrofoam plate in the heat and I fell in love with Thailand. Back home. Eathai finally opens and I go check it out. That same dish I had in Thailand is on the menu. There is no generic pad thai, no green curry. It brought me right back to Thailand. You drive down a busy street away a few miles away from hip Atlantic Avenue and there it is right next to a Burger King. The owner, So, the owner, was born in Thailand and had a very successful restaurant in NYC before he headed to Delray Beach. We don't have a lot of great traditional Asian restaurants in Palm Beach County. This is important food. I don't like the words Foodie or the idea of Adventurous Eating. If you like food, you are all those the things. Eating the food of a culture different from your own cooked by someone raised in that culture...well it's important. It opens your mind and your eyes to the entire world. I love this restaurant. I think what they're doing is very important. Eat spicy food! Try new things! Maybe a restaurant can actually inspire travel. I believe it can.

If you're looking to try some more unique Thai dishes in a very casual and low key setting, head to Eat Thai in Delray. The three people interacted with were all very nice, but they seemed a bit overwhelmed as it was certainly quite busy especially for a Sunday evening out of season. We started with the Chicken French Toast which reminded me of chicken and waffles and our favorite dish of the night. The sweet chili, cilantro and cucumber sauce really completed it. I had the crab fried rice which had a moderate serving of real crab. I didn't love the sauce it came with, so opted to mix in some siracha. My boyfriend had the drunken noodles with shrimp. It had a strong basil flavor and not very many vegetables and we found a giant branch/strand of peppercorns mixed in which seemed a bit odd. It was mediocre. Don't get me wrong - we both cleared our plates at home. We ordered a s'mores ice cream to go which did get a bit melty as expected so we didn't get the full rolled ice-cream experience that I know is quite unique. I would certainly go back for the ice cream treats and would try the Pad Thai and Thai Iced Tea!

Eathai was an experience that was memorable. I have never seen oxtail soup in my life but as the spoon entered my mouth, I felt an explosion of fresh lime, lemon, celery, potatoes, tomatoes. I mean that was an experience I'll never forget. The décor was so cool, my daughter wanted wood on her walls and old pipes as her rods for a bookshelf. I really enjoyed the flavors, the menu had a couple of special entrees that I must go back to try. I had fun there!
