Lunch at Thai Delight in Deerfield Beach

Once again the dynamic duo of ThaiCooks and SushiPro have turned me onto yet another pretty fantastic Asian restaurant, Thai Delight in Deerfield Beach. These two seem to know about every obscure little Thai and Sushi place in the most non-descript strip malls from here to Coral Gables and of course these are always the best ones without all the flash and flamboyance, just good food served simply. The one thing that stood out about the quality and authenticity of Thai Delight was the painstaking process of their menu items prepped and prepared by hand, none of that frozen/pre-made/pre-cut buy-it-in-bulk goes on in the Thai Delight kitchen. While I enjoyed the variety of items we were served I liked the Shrimp Green Curry best. I have an affinity for this dish and seek it out in every Thai restaurant I go to. Some restaurants miss the mark with a poor balance curry paste and coconut milk but Thai Delight stuck the landing on this one as we all agreed it was some dish.

Out of all the beers I’ve ever had I’ve never had a Thai beer, and well you know, when in Thailand…

Just like wine, beer has its own characteristics this is a barley malt, full-bodied beer and yet the surprise was the hints of flowers and lemon that tricked you on the nose thinking this maybe a sweet beer, not even close. This is a good strong refreshing beer that quenches the heat of the Thai food.

Chicken Satay served with housemade Peanut Sauce and Cucumber Salad

Shrimp Blanket, deep fried Shrimp Spring Rolls. This item truly describes what it is, shrimp wrapped in a blanket. Spring roll wrappers are used, not fry batter, to swadle the shrimp snuggly so when you bite into the ‘shrimp blanket’ you’re biting into the shrimp cased in rice paper not a mouthful filler batter, a pleasant fried surprise.

Thai Dumplings stuffed with shrimp, chicken water chestnuts,

shiitake mushrooms and scallions. If you’re a dumpling fan you will enjoy 

 these handmade treasures of delight garnished with crackling garlic

 

Curry Puff, ground chicken, onions and curry

Fish Ginger

Vegetable Ginger Sauce, served with Fish Ginger

This Ginger Sauce is served with the above Fish Ginger. The fish itself is prepared without seasoning with the intent of this magnificent bowl of ‘ginger juice’ and vegetables to be ladled on top of the fish. Fish Ginger is a straightforward yet extraordinary dish of textures and flavors possesing just the right amount of fresh ginger which adds its distinct flavor and perfume to the overall dish which made it quite the crowd pleaser.

Pad Kee Mao. Stir fried noodles with chicken, basil sauce and basil leaves

Another name for this dish is ‘drunken noodles’ in Thailand because when you’ve had one too many Plum Wines locals seek out this dish to absorb the alcohol, thus “drunken noodles”

Shrimp Green Curry. If you are a fan of green curry then this exceptional dish is one you should definitely try.

    I agree with you 100%. I am an ahan Thai aficionado after living and traveling throughout Thailand for four years. Thai Delight is my favorite spot. I travel from Boynton Beach to their little spot in the corner near TigerDirect. Although I can eat 5 star (extremely spicy) food, I preferred mildly spiced and the folks here understand that. They were also just voted #1 Thai Restaurant by Local 10

    Bon Appetit
