In case folks missed it, our own Thai Derm was highlighted in Wednesday's Washington Post Good to Go column.
On the whole, the review was positive. The review highlights the curries, lemon grass soup and the Spicy Seafood entree. However, the writer does diss Thai Derm's noodle dishes. But I probably agree with her assessment of the noodle dishes - they are not the restaurant's main draw. In my opinion, it seems the noodle dishes have gone down in quality over the last couple years. I remember a few years back when dining at TD ordering noodle dishes a majority of the time.
But more recently I have been leaning toward their rice dishes and soups. In particular, 3 soups I love are the Gai Tom Kha (with shrimp instead of chicken) - a great starter, also Guew Teow Thai Derm and Yen Toa Foh (without the pork) are both terrific entrees. On the rice side, the Gang Gai and the Ma Muang Himpan (subbing tofu for chicken) are also really good.
On the fish side, my wife is a huge fan of TD's salmon dishes, and they will cook it to order - ordering medium or medium-rare usually come out nicely done. And if you dine on a Friday, check out the whole deep-fried fish. It's a bit of work, but I've always been happy when ordering it.
So if you haven't been to TD, head on over for some take-out or dine in. The folks are extremely friendly and you don't need to worry about dropping a large sum of money given their reasonable prices. Hope to see you there. Happy new year.
