Best authentic Thai restaurant in Taipei: SUKHOTHAI
There aren't many places in Taipei to get authentic Thai food, but one in particular the Sukhothai at the Sheraton Taipei. From the intense heat of the curries to the fresh seafood, whether it's pineapple fried rice or shrimp cakes; You'll definitely enjoy the spiciness at Sukhothai.
The best part about Shrimp cakes is that delectable, crunchy fried batter that coats the shrimp. At Sukhothai, the cakes are much thicker which gives each bite a fuller taste and feel.
Joining chef Lin of Sukhotai providing authentic tastes is chef Phonlaphat Sudsaidee, from northeast Thailand, who has combined tradition and creativity to produce food rarely encountered here.
The spices — shallots, dried shrimps, coconut, chili, lime, young ginger, green mango, roasted peanuts and a sugar cane-based mieng sauce — are folded in a leaf and eaten raw.
Seafood curry is a must order dish at Sukhothai. Eaten with jasmine rice, the dish gets so much volume from the rice soaking up all the curry sauce.
Their are few options for desserts such as: thai weet rie and mango, flour pastry with water chestnuts and sweet coconut cream.
