Peasant dishes taste like a million bucks at Thai Country Cafè

The fare at Thai Country Café compares favorably with the offerings at other Thai restaurants in the area, several of which are also in the Delmar Loop. The café's menu mainly comprises rice dishes, noodle stir-fries and noodle soups -- the kind of nourishing food that sustains the hard-working farmers in Thailand's rural districts. Most items are not as vividly flavored as the intense curries and pungent marinades at The King & I, the best Thai restaurant among those we've visited in St. Louis.

Thai Country Café's rustic dishes are stir-fried, steamed or grilled and then garnished sparely.

More About

Thai Country Café's atmosphere is less upscale than the ambience at restaurants such as Manee Thai and Sukho Thai. The café recently expanded into an adjacent storefront, but the old and new sides look similar. Each dining room has a couple of booths elevated on platforms in front of plate-glass windows. The walls are adorned with coolie hats, intricately woven tapestries and other artifacts. A television is mounted in the back corner of the new dining room. During one of our visits, the staff seemed to be absorbed in watching a college-basketball game on TV. We didn't mind, though. We had everything we needed and were pleased to be left alone to enjoy the meal.
