It would be impossible for me to name my favorite OBX restaurant. There are just too many to choose from. But the Thai Room, on the Beach Road at 710 Va. Dare Trail is among my top three. I always mourn the closing of this restaurant each December when the owners go back to Thailand for a few months. In fact, each December I begin to gorge on take out from here, in the mistaken belief that devouring 300 spicy shrimp cakes in one month, will tide me over until March.
This year, the "kids" we have seen at this establishment for so long are all grown up and they stayed here! The result is that the Thai Room is now technically open year 'round--with a Tuesday to Saturday schedule.
I'm still gorging, but at least its only once a week. Still, when I walk out of the place with my take away order, it comes in a completely filled standard sized brown paper grocery bag--enough to feed an army. Or provide two extra days of Thai Pork Curry-medium!
