Siam Orchid Food review.
We just may have a strong contender for the best pad thai in Cincinnati! I headed across the river to get gas at lunch, not sure why KY’s was cheaper for once, but I was all over that. I drove past Siam Orchid and a light bulb went off. I have heard great things about this place, but I didn’t know where it was. So I stopped in, and even saw a friend in there who was adamant about how awesome the food is. I ordered the chicken pad thai. Not sure if it was the lunch portion or not, but it was $7.50 and came with a spring roll. Which was to die for. Crisp and flavorful and came with a magical sauce I wish I could pour over 45% of the foods I eat. Is it just me, or do you too think all Thai food should come with a spring roll? Why doesn’t it?! I demand answers!
Either way, the pad thai had the most amazingly subtle sauce. It was different than any other that I’ve ever had and I enjoyed it so much. It was topped with a ton of peanuts and came with a lime to spritz over. The chicken wasn’t a star in this show, so its the only regret I have. Next time I’ll try veggie or shrimp. Otherwise, it was an amazing dish and I’m looking forward to coming back on the regular. My Thai staple spot is going to be really sad. Look what you did.
