Warm Up This Winter at Sap's Thai

With over 10 pages of hearty Thai dishes, plenty of soups, and food with a spicy kick, Sap's Thai is the perfect way to stay warm this winter. We popped in for lunch on an especially cold day and couldn't have left more satisfied.

While Sap's offers a casual dining experience, one thing I love about the restaurant is that it's nice and quiet and makes for a relaxing meal. But don't worry, I would still consider the restaurant to be very family friendly. Plus kids will love looking at the colorful umbrellas hanging from the ceiling.

After perusing the extensive menu, we followed recommendations and selected an appetizer, soup and fried rice. For starters, we had the Kao-Tung, a lightly fried Thai rice cake with a side of minced pork and shrimp in a light and spicy coconut sauce. The sauce was really a standout on the unique texture of the rice cakes.

For our meal, we shared the Tom Kha soup with chicken. If you've never had it before, this soup has a coconut base with lemongrass, Thai peppers, lime juice, mushrooms, cilantro and other spices. It packs a lot of rich flavor and is a good idea to share. It also comes with a heaping serving of white rice. Plus, if you're suffering from allergies this season, this soup will certainly clear the sinuses!

The fried rice choices also come highly recommended, so we selected the unique Pineapple Fried Rice. We chose pork as our protein, and it also includes peas, carrots, cashews, raisins and eggs. We loved the unique blend of colors, flavors and textures not usually found in most fried rice dishes.

With such a huge menu, we are certainly looking forward to going back to Sap's to try more dishes. Check out one of their locations the next time you're looking to warm up on a cold day!
