While most associate the Western North Carolina mountain cuisine with southern dishes like BBQ, fried chicken and farm-to-table delights, there are plenty of options for authentic thai food in and around downtown Asheville! Thai cuisine staples like pad thai, tom yum (hot and sour soup with shrimp), drunken noodles (spicy stir fry noodle dish), red curry, and other creative asian fusion dishes. The many flavors and textures that Thai food offers with ingredients like coconut milks, intense chilis, herbs like fragrant lemongrass, sticky rice, seafood and more create that multi-flavor experience with each aromatic dish. By nature, authentic Thai food gives plenty of vegan, dairy free and gluten free options for those with any restrictions. Feature photo: Pad-Thai
