Taste Explosion: Sri Thai
Sri Thai: Can food in Hoboken be TOO delicious?
Without a doubt, Sri Thai (234 Bloomfield St.) in Hoboken is my all-time favorite place to eat.
The top three dishes are: Yum Nua Salad (BBQ Beef, cilantro, veggies, with spicy lemon), Yum Ped Salad (Crispy shredded duck, chili, cashews) and Kai Sam Rot (Fried chicken with spicy tamarind sauce).
Minus the rice, these dishes still aren’t no-carb, but are low enough in carbohydrates to enjoy as part of your low carb living regimen.
What does Sri Thai put in the food that turns you into an animal?
However, I became a bit concerned last week when I ordered this trio of dishes.
I made a medium plate, which had enough protein and fat that I believed it should have left me satisfied (other dishes I eat with similar amounts or less of food do just fine). But enjoying the phenomenal, fresh, spicy and tangy thai food made me more ravenous – and I ate a lot more than usual. Was completely unlike me – as if I had become obsessed, and had no reason to stop.
Calling Sri Thai to see if they add MSG to their food probably won’t net any real answers – Does anyone know if they have an accurate way to check? Googling it doesn’t lead you very far – and any links you might find are now broken.
I’d be very unhappy if they use MSG, and would likely have to find a replacement thai place to get my favorite dishes.
