Thai Box 2Go: Not Just Take-Out
While I’ve been to Thai Box 2Go in the past, I can’t really recall why I haven’t been back here recently. Contrary to what you might think based on their name, this Thai eatery located on Sixth Street in New Westminster, has a fairly comfortable dine-in seating area.
Given all of the recent Thai restaurant visits I’ve been making lately in the New West area, I thought it would be a good idea to come back here and try them out again. On this visit, I opted for the Green Curry Chicken from their lunch special menu ($9.96) which is served with a salad with a lightly sweet and tart dressing as well as deep-fried wontons. The wontons had a light crispness and were drizzled with a sweet sauce.
The first thing that I noticed when my curry dish arrived was how intensely green the curry sauce was. At most other Thai restaurants that I’ve been to recently, the green curry had a very light green colour to it. Here, the green curry paste seems to have embarked an almost pesto-like hue.
You can specify your level of spiciness with your dishes and, although I opted for a medium heat level, it turned out rather tame. I found that the eggplant was a tad firmer than I prefer but it was okay.
I suppose they do a brisk take-out business because there were quite a few customers coming and going, picking up their orders during my visit.
