Oie’s Spicy Thai

Nov 18, 2015 By Texas Monthly

Oie’s Spicy Thai recently returned from a hiatus, and though in a bit of disarray, it still manages to live up to its name, serving the spiciest Thai cuisine in the Permian Basin. If you like noodles, don’t pass up the pad see ew, a dish that combines heat and…

The colorful interior nicely offsets the beautiful plating of the food. Our delicate taste buds, traumatized from a previous visit, steered us away from the starred menu items (read “spicy”) toward fresh spring rolls packed full of shrimp and mango and an entrée of chicken curry with multihued bell peppers…

Rim Tanon

As we know, street food is all the rage, whether Indian, Thai, Chinese, Lebanese, Latin, Hawaiian—you name it, and Houston has it. The aptly named Rim (which means “roadside”) makes a credible new entry on the Thai scene with some laudable dishes served in a colorful, casual setting.

Fresh orchids, authentic garb worn by servers, dark woods, and colorful art depicting pastoral river scenes—it all seems a bit like a set for The King and I. Six tulip dumplings (they did look a bit like emerging blooms) plump with pork, shrimp, and water chestnuts were a delicious appetizer.

Thai Spice

Nov 19, 2015 By Texas Monthly

We are always warmly welcomed by Paul and Pennee Chanyaman, who seem to have further upgraded their intimate dining room every time we visit. Plates are artfully presented—a carved wedge of fresh pineapple, a baby coconut as serving vessel—and the menu abounds in interesting dishes offered in varying levels of…

There is always a wait at this colorful strip-mall spot, whose loyal clientele come for the bounty of noodle and curry dishes (if you’re up for it, the massaman curry with shrimp and avocado will for sure jumpstart the metabolism). For dessert, try the tasty floating rice cake in ganache…

Thai Thai

We got to Thai Thai just before the lunch rush and counted ourselves lucky; by the time we’d finished placing our order, there was a line out the door of the restaurant. The menu is a bit daunting—it takes up the whole wall behind the counter and is all in…
