Tommy Thai * Springfield, VA

Tonight, my husband and I tried out Tommy Thai Restaurant for the second time since it had its soft opening two weeks ago.

From the menu, we ordered the sticky rice, white rice, papaya salad and fried flounder with a Thai basil sauce. Unlike most other Thai restaurants, Tommy Thai serves their sticky rice black, an interesting twist to the usual white glutinous rice that’s served with the customary sticky rice and mango dessert. The papaya salad is not the authentic, homemade fishy one that I’m used to. This one was light, spicy and sweet. Very good and more suited to a Thai fusion-style restaurant like this one. The fried flounder was more than enough for two people; we ate the whole thing, barely leaving behind the head and bones. The flounder can be ordered filet style for those who prefer not to see the whole fish, head and all.

For dessert, we enjoyed the custard which is similar to leche flan but has a thicker consistency; it was pure deliciousness! There was a taste of coconut milk and a hint of taro in the filling. This dessert would have been perfection if it had the creme brulee style topping. But for sure, the custard dessert will make a repeat customer of me!
