After Hours: Try a little Thai
March 11, 2009
MILDENHALL — Fresh is first at En-Thai-Sing, a delicious Thai restaurant in Mildenhall village.
Well, authentically fresh is actually first there. The little restaurant serves a variety of quality Thai dishes, made the way they’re made in Thailand, according to manager Weerawan Sae-Ui.
"We do exactly the same as in Thailand," she said. "So there’s no need to go there!"
Thai food, some of it anyway, carries a certain bit of spice, and that’s evident in dishes like the tamarind duck, a mix of veggies, succulent duck and some spice that will kick-start your lunch or dinner plans.
En-Thai-Sing has lunch specials for about 6 or 7 pounds where customers can choose their favorite type of meat to go with an array of spices and veggies.
The restaurant has been open about four years and is popular with Americans and local Brits alike, Sae-Ui said.
En-Thai-Sing’s offerings are best enjoyed in a group setting, where everyone can sample a bit of food. The proprietors recommend a separate little plate for each dish, so that individual flavors remain distinct.
While Thai food can be very spicy, folks here will gladly "mild down" or heat up any dish.
Aside from offering group set-meal deals, En-Thai-Sing cooks a mean poo nim. That’s fried soft-shell crab topped with garlic and coriander. The gai yang, or marinated and grilled chicken, is also consistently good. The green curry offerings are the perfect combination of sweet with just a touch of heat.
Entrees range from about 7 pounds for standard fare up to about 17 pounds for the swankier lobster offerings.
Be it for a nice night out or a quick lunch off base, En-Thai-Sing has you covered for spicy, authentic and delicious meals.
