Thai Spoon ~ Round Rock, Texas
Thai food is one of my all-time favorite ethnic styles of food. So I go as often as possible! Mrs. Music likes it; she used to love it but sort of lost that love, so we don’t go as often as we used to. Fortunately, music junior and baby music both LOVE Thai food. They love tom kha gai (coconut chicken soup) and pad kee mow (the wide noodles with lots of basil and slightly sweet sauce). There are many Thai restaurants around these days, but I’m all for it! I’m interested in trying each one! We got the chance to try Thai Spoon in Round Rock; rated one of the better Thai places in the area. We didn’t really get to try all the usual items because were weren’t as hungry as usual. Baby music got some dumplings and music junior opted for fried rice with chicken. Both were very good! Mrs. Music and I each ordered a big bowl of Tom Kha Gai and decided to split a salad with ginger dressing. The salad was made with lots of fresh spinach and carrots with cucumber and tomato with a ginger/soy dressing. It was yummy. The soup was great; the broth had lots of flavor from galangal and lemon grass although they strained the pieces of them out. I actually prefer to see the galangal and lemon grass in the soup. They had lots of moist chicken and mushrooms. The soup was solid, but nothing ground breaking. I’d definitely be up to check this place out again and try some curry or noodles! The menu had about everything you know and several you don't!
