There’s nothing quite like enjoying a mouthwatering meal, out on the town. Luckily, our area has a great selection of restaurants for any palate. I was trying to come up with my top five list of my favorite places to eat. It was impossible! I started thinking about my favorite Thai food and I immediately started getting hungry. I couldn't get past Thai food.
So here is my list of my favorite Thai restaurants in Miami-Dade County. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND trying all of them. If you've already eaten at some or all of them, why not go there again and do your own taste test😋
MY FAVORITE THAI FOOD RESTAURANTS (in no particular order)
Lung Yai Thai Tapas is a small hole in the wall place on 8th Street. It's definitely not an area where you would expect to taste some of the best Thai food you've ever tasted. The Som Tam (papaya salad), the Jungle Curry Fried Rice, and the Roasted Baby Back Ribs are some of my favorite items on the menu.
If you've ever been to Siam Palace in the past and didn't like it, your thoughts are shared by many. Not very long ago, a new owner completely changed everything about the experience. The food now is exceptional! Some of my favorites are the Curry Fried Rice w/Jumbo Shrimp, the Beef Masaman Curry, and the Steak Thai Style are some of my dishes on the menu.
Green Plate has some awesome lunch specials! The amount of food they give you for around $10 is unbelievable. There are so many items on their menu that I love. The Basil Fried Rice, Mixed Pad Thai, and Mongolian Beef are delightful and among my favorites.
If you ever want to take your significant other to a special place to eat some incredible tasting food, I would highly recommend going to NaiYaRa. It is located in Miami Beach and is much more expensive than all the others on this list, but after paying your somewhat hefty bill, you will want to return soon. The Sriracha Wings, the Chiang Rai Curry with skirt steak, and the Chicken Pad Thai with tamarind sauce are delightful!
Ruson, like many of the other restaurants on the list, sells both Japanese and Thai food. They serve one of my FAVORITE dishes, Beef Basil. I have never been able to take a photo of it because I eat it immediately! Some of my other favorites are the Hibachi Grill and their Pad Thai.
HONORABLE MENTION - I've heard that Panya Thai is exceptional. I've never been there before but I'm looking forward to eating more than I should when I go. Krispy Kreme is not too far away. So it is definitely a great day to look forward to.
