Restaurant Review: Thai Chili

I love Thai food. It’s one of the “Krystle” food groups. Today, my colleague and I went to lunch at one of our favorite Thai restaurants in the Verizon Center area, Thai Chili. Located in the Gallery Place center, this restaurant offers some of the best Pad Thai in the area.

I had the Pad Thai with chicken. The chicken tasted like it was overcooked, but the peanut curry sauce made up for the loss. With a hint of lime, the sauce had a great flavor. The noodles were tender and the vegetables in the dish had just the amount of crispness. While many places limit portions, their lunch portion was very generous.

My colleague had requested the Thai Curry Tofu. The lunch portion was also very generous and provided the right amount of heat. The tofu was extra firm and the vegetables looked fresh. There were no complaints with the taste of the dish.

While my favorite Thai restaurant is Tara Thai, I have to say a close third (second is Sakoontra in Fairfax) is Thai Chili. If you are craving Thai and live/work/or visit D.C., stop by and you will not be disappointed.
