Food trucks are all the rage now and we have some really great ones in our area. Our absolute favorite is the Thai This Food Truck. Depending on the day of the week, they can be found in several locations near The Oaks. Like their Facebook page and you”ll know where they are and what’s on the menu. On Wednesday they are at the Fieldstone church here in Christiansburg so last week I stopped on my way to the YMCA pottery studio to get my Thai food fix. They always offer a few select items from their overall menu. If you follow them around you can have something different every day. I chose the Spicy Beef Salad of thinly sliced grilled beef tossed with cucumbers, tomatoes, red & green onions, celery, cilantro & mint in a chili-lime dressing (Served not hot, med, hot or Thai hot). I get it medium spicy with extra cilantro.Yummy! Yummy!! Yummy!!!
Yesterday they were at the Cedar Valley Exxon in Radford and Bernie’s favorite, pad Thai, was on the menu. It’s just one exit down I-81 from The Oaks so of course we had to go for lunch. They make their pad Thai with chicken or Tofu. It’s Thai rice noodles stir-fried with egg, shallots, bean sprouts, green onions & slivered radish in a sweet & sour tamarind sauce topped with crushed peanuts. Again…Yummy! Yummy!! Yummy!!!
So next time you stay here at The Oaks Victorian Inn, start your day with our 3 course breakfast by candlelight, do some some exploring, then have a great lunch with Thai This.
