Thai food fans rejoice. Thai cuisine has come to 63129 with the opening of Drunken Noodles Taste of Thai, a welcome addition to the Oakville/Mehlville culinary landscape.
Drunken Noodles is tucked in the strip center located at the southeast corner of Lemay Ferry and Baumgartner Roads and offers dine-in table service or walk-up counter take-out.
When asked what’s behind the Drunken Noodle name Manager Viston Khammanivong explained that the noodles, along with everything else on the menu, is drunk with flavor. “It’s how we make our food – with so much flavor that it's intoxicating”
Over 116 Thai and Chinese dishes, from appetizers to tea, are divided into a dozen menu categories. In addition, there's a full page of lunch specials that include fried rice and crab rangoon or egg roll ($6.29). Popular lunch picks include Thai and Chinese dishes as General Tso, Mongolian Beef, Pad Thai and Hot Braised Chicken.
The full menu has several traditional Thai standouts as Red Curry, Spicy Pad Ped and Pho Gai ($7.99). Pho Gai, a Thai specialty is a noodle soup filled with chicken, sprouts and veggies and found on the menu under Drunken Noodle Bowls.
Depart from Thai and consider a Chinese dish as Orange Beef, Kung Pao Chicken or Moo Goo Gai Pan, all priced at $7.99. Foodies will also celebrate the option of ordering the Chinese specialty unique to St. Louis, The St. Paul Sandwich ($5.99). That’s Egg Foo Young on a bun, served with fries.
