Thai food is one of my favorite cuisines – there is so much flavor and spice and everything nice! Seattle has some of the best thai food I’ve ever eaten so moving to OKC I was worried that I wouldn’t find any that stacks up. And while I still am on the quest for a spot like my Seattle favorite, Bangrak, this little spot is pretty damn good! It is called Larm Thai and is located in Edmond in a little strip mall. It is a little off the beaten path, but is worth the trip and detour to dine here. They’ve got incredible lunch specials and a variety of classic thai dishes.
We grabbed lunch a few weeks ago and tried the Drunken Noodles and Pad See EW – two very classic thai noodle dishes that are always a hit. With the lunch special you get to try an appetizer sampler and we opted for the dumplings and crab rangoon. It was served in such an elegant way and we were stunned by the presentation – just so beautiful. The dumplings were so crispy on the outside with juicy, warm filling. The sauce on top was slightly sweet and spicy for the perfect bite. For both of the noodle dishes, we opted for chicken. Drunken Noodles and Pad See Ew are similar with just a few differences. Drunken Noodles are stir fried with the flat noodles, egg, onions, bell pepper, broccoli, garlic, thai chili and basil. The Pad See Ew is stir fried with the flat noodles, egg, broccoli and carrots in a sweetened black soy sauce. We ordered 3 of 5 stars in terms of spice to be middle of the road, but this spot does NOT joke around with their heat levels. I am an absolute wimp when it comes to spicy food, but I can normally suck it up and handle a bit more than I give myself credit for. But this dish, oh man… there was actually a point I had to stop because my mouth was on fire. The flavor was absolutely incredible though and I desperately wanted to keep eating through the spice pain. Next time, I will definitely start off with a 1/5 spice level because this place doesn’t joke!
Check this spot out for a tasty thai dish when you need some warm stir fry noodles on a cold fall or winter evening! Their full menu can be found here.
