Best Thai Food in Park City – Bangkok Thai on Main Will Warm Your Soul

4 November 2009 By: Casey 2 Comments | Restaurant Reviews

When you decide that you want to spend your vacation in one of North America’s most famous ski towns, you want to be sure that it also has some of the country’s greatest cuisine.  If you are looking for delicious food, dynamic tastes, and a plethora of unique restaurants boasting the best soul warming food in the West, make sure you put Bangkok Thai in Park City, Utah on your list.

After enjoying the unusually warm day today in the beautiful outdoors, my boyfriend and I had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy one of our favorite Park City restaurants.  Bangkok Thai on Main has been a local’s favorite for many years. The atmosphere is casual but elegant, with its sunken location on historic Main Street. Bangkok Thai was also the winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence in 2008, along with the Utah Best of State “Best Asian/Pacific Fine Dining” for 2008. Other than a notable wine list, Bangkok is also vegetarian friendly, romantic, and most importantly, has some of the best soup in the state! Trust me, when you need a mouth-watering soul-warming experience with a nice glass of wine, Bangkok Thai is your dream come true.

So, what kind of soup does a Thai restaurant in the mountains serve? Some of the best you’ll ever taste, that’s for sure! Bangkok Thai offers a few different soups including the Tom Kha and Tom Yum Goong. Fortunately we had the opportunity to taste both!  Let me tell you, both of these soups are truly amazing, rich, and full of flavor.

Bangkok Thai on Main - Park City, Utah Tom Kha

To start things off tonight, we first tried the Tom Yum Goong which is a zesty, spicy, and sour soup with shrimp, mushrooms, kaffir lime leaf, and lemon grass. Each ingredient is strong and flavorful on its own, but combined together they create a unique and incredible layered tasting experience.  Upon my first spoonful, I immediately tasted the lemon grass and a hint of citrus flavor, giving it the “zesty spicy” characteristics. The soup also had some mild heat to it, just enough to warm my stomach without tasting overly spicy. This is a soup that I will make sure to order again and I highly recommend.

After enjoying the many flavors of the Tom Yum Goong, the manager then brought out our next soup, the Tom Kha which is an exotic creamy soup with coconut milk, kaffir lime leaf, lemon grass, mushrooms, and green onions. The Tom Kha generally comes with chicken, however, they prepared it as a vegetarian dish upon request with an abundance of fresh vegetables including broccoli, carrot slices, and snap peas. Yummo! Within my first two sips, I immediately distinguished notes of ginger from the galangal. Galangal is a root similar to ginger, but with a more earthy, citrusy flavor and just made the soup perfect. While I think this soup was my favorite among the two, they were both incredible.

Bangkok Thai on Main - Park City, Utah Tempura Cod

Kevin and I continued on with our meal, trying some special new entrees yet to be added to the menu. All I can say is make sure you try the brand new and incredible Tempura Cod entree this winter. To end our meal, we tried the incredible sticky rice dessert with a coconut cream sauce, fresh mangoes, kiwis, and strawberries. This traditional Thai dessert honestly blew me away. There are few things better than a warm dessert, and this is a dish that doesn’t disappoint! A special thanks to Keith and Andrew for allowing us to taste all the wonderful flavors that Bangkok has to offer. We’ll be back!

If you’ve been to Bangkok Thai, make sure you let us know how your experience was. We’d love to know!
