Thai 9

My first foray into shrimp in Ohio was with this excellent Pad Thai! Located in downtown Dayton’s historic Oregon District is Thai 9. Dayton’s premium Thai and sushi restaurant. Probably the most stunning Thai restaurant I’ve been in across America. The place is beautiful and cavernous with an old world Asian charm.

Pinto Thai

My favorite Thai dish with the perfect balance of sweet, sour and spicy is definitely Pad Thai! Pinto Thai in Ramona is consistently excellent with their version.

Pei Wei

Probably one of the most irresistible dishes I order at Pei Wei is their outstanding Dan Dan Noodles! They do a really good job on this one. This epitomizes Asian comfort food for me.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Outstanding order of Dan Dan Noodles at Pei Wei! A dish so good, they named it after me twice 😂

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Outstanding Pad Thai at Pei Wei in 4S Ranch! As long as you omit the tofu that is. The consistency is still somewhat loose compared to legit Thai restaurants though.

Stir Fresh Mongolian Grill

This is one of those many Mongolian girl type places you see around. It’s a neat concept, but kind of tricky for a first timer. You go through a buffet style line stuffing shaved frozen meats (of mediocre quality) into your bowl, then noodles, vegetables, etc. It’s really an art to stuff as much as you can into one bowl! You end up with an array of flavoring and spice type sauces at the end. This is where trial and error along with experience come into play. When all filled up you hand it to the cooks circling a huge round flattop grill where they cook it all up and plate it for you.

Panya Thai Kitchen 

My favorite Thai restaurant in Escondido is Panya Thai Kitchen!  Here’s an outstanding dinner order of their excellent Pad Thai.  I ordered this one with shrimp.  The shrimps were abundant and perfectly cooked.
