Talesai

June 28, 2015

The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version: 

Winner.
Consistent and an overall great Thai restaurant.

The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:

I have been going to Talesai for a long time. It’s funny, I’ve only dined-in a handful of times, but have eaten their food more times than I can count. The service isn’t anything special and their location doesn’t captivate, but the food always delivers.

What we ate:

  • Pot stickers ($5)
  • Pad Thai ($11)
  • Spicy eggplant ($8)
  • Asparagus, snow peas and mushrooms ($9)
  • Filet Mignon ($22)
  • Branzino ($27)

The dumplings were good, they didn’t look super appetizing (kind of looked like a brain to be honest), but they were tasty. The sauce was good, albeit a little sweet, but they were a good start to the meal.

These vegetables were very good, the sauce was flavorful and these mushrooms are my favorite!

The pad thai is something I always order, I love pad thai. This is a good staple and it’s made well.

The filet mignon was tender and the green beans are my favorite! It’s very filling so definitely better to share this dish.

The eggplant is my favorite, it’s garlicky and intense in all the right ways. Plus, it just melts. The texture is perfect and the flavor is even better.

I loved the branzino, it was crispy on the outside with lots of flaky meat inside. The subtle flavor of the sauce complemented the fish very well and it made for a great dish!
