Secret Thai Cafe: Sandpoint Blog

By

So, on my show, North Idaho Business, broadcast on the Talk North Idaho radio network, I interviewed the Secret Thai Cafe last Tuesday. I had first encountered this couple of a Thai wife and American husband at last year's Festival at Sandpoint. They had been in the vendor booth next to Dish Home Cooking. I helped at the Festival as well as lending a hand at the Dish booth. We traded food with the Thai guys, and it was good, but I couldn't help but notice for every ten people served at the Dish booth, they served one. A little slow in the cooking process.

So, in my interview with Secret Thai Cafe, I was pleased to find out that every menu item was under $10. I also liked their hours of operation. They are open from 11 am to 2 pm, and then reopen for dinner from 4:30 - 8 pm. They took over the space behind Eichardt's Pub after the BBQ joint had closed that had been there before. I always wondered why the previous establishment did not open for dinner, and noted that the Thai Cafe was smarter in their hours of operation.

The menu is not giant, but the items are good, offering Thai stir fry, Pha-Naeng Curry, Pad Thai and Tom Ka Gai.

Anyway, the next day, I took some friends there to try it out. We were there right at opening, and, as it was at the Festival, the cooking process was not incredibly fast. Still, each item was artfully prepared, and you simply cannot beat the prices.

We took out our meal and walked the short distance over to the Bonner Healing Garden to eat. Check out the picks I took of the Garden in the next blog article.

Anyway, thumbs up, as long as you are not in any hurry.

ขอให้เจริญอาหาร! (kŏr hâi jà-rern aa-hăan!) That's how you say Bon Appetit in Thai.
