Taste of Bangkok, a restaurant at 1618 N.E. 6th Ave. in the Lloyd District, is celebrating its second year of serving dishes made from family recipes and authentic Bangkok street food.
The street food selections include the Mango Posse with seafood. It includes fresh, sweet mango, prawn, scallop and cashew nut sautéed with chili paste. Like many of the restaurant’s selections, it is served with Jasmine or brown rice.
Another favorite is Khao Ka Moo, which is pork hock slow-cooked in five spices with steamed broccoli and choice of rice. Other dishes include pad thai and yellow and red curries. Thai desserts include sweet sticky rice with mango and snow ice with coconut cream.
The Lloyd Center-area restaurant is a “sister” business to the family’s 10-year-old Mai Thai restaurant, 3104 S.E. Belmont St.
For an additional $3 per order, Taste of Bangkok will deliver selections within three miles of the restaurant. Take-out orders also are available. The hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Friday; noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 503-946-8377 or visit www.tasteofbangkokportland.com.
