Stepping into Thaimee Love will feel like coming over to my apartment for dinner. I want to show people how diverse and authentic Thai cuisine can be. I want every guest to experience and enjoy the food that I loved growing up, especially dishes that are not commonly found in most Thai restaurants in the US.
My inspiration for Thaimee Love is to create a real Thai “Baan Baan” style cooking and eating experience. The menu is designed with the vision - this is how you dine at home in my family dining room. The starters play as welcoming bites whilst waiting for the kitchen to prepare the whole meals. All items are meant to be shared and I encourage you to order from each section – Soup, Nahm Prik, Mains, Eggs and Veggies will be served at the same time. The soup plays the role to transport rice into the digestive system (either the clear one or the spicy one). Nahm Prik elevates the rice and each bite to the next level. Eggs accompany main dishes, and vegetables are always a great side dish for the whole meal.
This is how we eat at home. I've commissioned a Thai farmer to grow real Thai herbs and vegetables that will ship weekly to our kitchen. We also have a mini market in front of the restaurant so you can pick up ingredients and cook a great Thai meal in your own home as well.
