Thai Taste Cuisine

Colorado Springs Restaurant Review

I am continuing my exploration of Colorado Springs restaurants, and this past week I took a chance on Thai Taste Cuisine, a humble, hidden gem tucked away in a strip mall located on the Northside of Colorado Springs. I find myself frequently diving into hidden corners to find the best of meals. I received a recommendation for Thai Taste Cuisine from a friend, so I decided to give it a try and took myself to a late lunch. I was delighted to find the recommendation exceeded my expectations!

When I stepped inside, the soft piano music set the relaxed afternoon mood. I showed up at 1 pm, well after the lunch rush ended, however, the restaurant had no shortage of diners. It was really quite impressive and spoke to the quality of the food. 

I decided to try the lunch special, which includes Thai tea, a spring roll, and a choice of entree for a very reasonable amount, less than $10. I chose Shrimp Pad Thai, as I have a serious love affair with peanuts. When I was pregnant, apples with peanut butter were my daily craving. We have a peanut allergy in our home, so I always enjoy a rogue outing to enjoy my contraband. I ordered my Shrimp Pad Thai with mild heat. The heat of the dish was pleasant and noted without being overwhelming. The Thai tea would give any southerner’s sweet tea a run for their money – it is iced black tea with a splash of sweetened condensed milk and it paired perfectly with the spice in my Shrimp Pad Thai. The spring roll was everything one could hope for – crisp flaky fried exterior and creamy yet al dente vegetable crunch on the inside.

I would absolutely recommend Thai Taste Cuisine to satisfy your next Thai food craving, and I will definitely be going back again. 

What is Thai Iced Tea?

Thai Iced Tea is made from strongly brewed black tea, often spiced with ingredients such as star anise, crushed tamarind, or cardamom. This brew is then sweetened with sugar and sweetened condensed milk and served over ice.
