President Thai: Off Colorado

South of Colorado, down Rosemead, there's a great Thai place called President Thai. A friend of mine told me about this place a while ago and when I drove by last year the place was demolished and they were building anew. I don't know when they finished construction but they are open for business and the building looks fantastic and their logo is cool too. It looks like a smaller Wat Thai temple.

They definitely spent some bucks in creating an environment that transports you to Thailand. You'll find some fountains outside, patio seating, Thai artwork all over ...etc.

And what about the food you say? I'm am happy to report that it was great. I went for lunch and got the Duck Noodle Soup and it was good. The broth was flavorful and the duck bits were tasty.

Another item on the menu caught my eye so I also tried out the Chinese Greens with Fried Pork. This was great - the greens had so much flavor. The fried pork were crunchy thick pork bits. The greens by itself was great picking up flavor from the pork, so it's up to you if you want the cholesterol or not from the pork. But if you bite into the fried pork, you won't be dissappointed.

Will definitely be back to try some more dishes.

    You have found a "Hidden Gem!"

    While you are at it, might as well try next door at "Nikki C's"
