Sala Thai has red, green and brown traditional curries which offer a choice of duck, chicken, beef, pork or shrimp. The curry entrée is served with a bowl of rice.
The soft shell crab is deep-fried and served on a bed of noodles. In this case, we ordered the Keemao (Drunken Noodles) which are broad rice noodles sautéed with garlic, hot chili and basil leaves. The aromatic and delicious drunken noodles may also be ordered with chicken, beef or other seafood.
Pad Thai consists of noodles sautéed with fresh bean sprouts, egg, scallion, red tofu and ground peanuts with a choice of beef, pork, shrimp or chicken. The beef was not very tender.
