Thai Thanee, Gent Belgium

Location: Vlaanderenstraat 79, 9000 Gent, Belgium

While wandering around Gent we came upon Thai Thanee around dinnertime and decided to try it. I'm really glad we did as it was some of the best Thai food I have had. We ordered and then they brought out some of these crackers which were quite tasty. Very crunchy and a little spicy.

We started with some spring rolls and they were good. The normal glass noodles and veggies, but they had lots of black pepper in them which I enjoyed.

Then we started with the sweet and sour tofu - cucumber, peppers, onions, pineapple, and tofu in sweet and sour sauce. I normally don't order sweet and sour as it is not my favorite. A lot of times the sauce is gelatinous and lots of breaded things and fried and just not what I like. This however was amazing. The sauce was light, but added a nice flavor to the veggies. I am not sure I have ever had cucumber that had been cooked such as in this dish, but it was quite tasty. I really enjoyed all of it as it was just very good.

We also had the red curry. This was very creamy and rich and our only complaint was we wish there were more veggies in it (but that is a common complaint with curries. I am not sure why they are never full of vegetable). It had a really great flavor and was very good. It was marked with 3 chili peppers to indicate it was spicy, but it was not at all. I could barely detect any hot spice in it, and I don't like a lot of spice.

Overall - I loved Thai Thanee. I would recommend stopping by if you are in Gent as it is some of the best Thai food I have ever had.
