A Santa Fe chef receives tops honors on the Food Network’s “Chopped,” the Homegrown food show sells locally-sourced food, a mother calls out the bad food our public schools are serving students, a new Dickey’s Barbecue just opened, WisePies owner gets sued—plus drink margaritas for charity at the Margarita Festival.
At some point down the line Thai food became synonymous with comfort food for me. It was my family’s favorite dining out cuisine when I was young, and now I have a lot of good nostalgia wrapped up in the smell of lemongrass and curry. Tom kha gai, papaya salad and pad see ew are my go-to orders when I’m sick or just craving something warming and familiar, so I’ve visited most of the Thai spots in town to find some of my favorites of each. That GrubHub bill is getting a little out of control at this point, honestly.
Here’s a few of my favorite spots to order Thai in the Duke City. May they bring you many spicy tears and great evenings.
