Thai Spice impresses with amazing steak and seafood dishes Fort Lauderdale favorite Thai Spice has expanded – not only in size, but in menu as well. They now have a beautiful large bar area and are offering even more delicious options.

Food for thought 1Not that they needed a change– Thai Spice has won many accolades through the years and it’s easy to see why. This Fort Lauderdale mainstay has always been consistent – with it’s elegant and tasty dishes and it’s attractive atmosphere. The perfect place for a romantic evening or a work lunch, Thai Spice has always been a popular choice.

The evening that J and I dined there, we sat in the new area and tried a few new items, along with few of their tried and true dishes. I was eager to try dishes that I’ve never had before. I’ve been coming to Thai Spice for the last six years and have always ordered the same two dishes (because they are awesome) – Thai Red Curry with Tofu and Yum Nua (Thai Beef Salad).

As we dined that night, a singer sat by the bar and sung some romantic tunes and it really added a nice element to our evening,

Our server was upbeat and friendly and offered us some great suggestions. I started with some warm sake which helped me to relax after a long day. Sake lovers will love Thai Spice’s new drink menu which includes Saketinis and more.

Our server told us that their Crispy Calamari in a light chili sauce was such a popular appetizer that 80-percent of diners order it. We had to give it a try and the crispy rings in the sweet sauce were addictive.

We also tried a new item—their crab cake. Loaded with basil and chunky fresh crabmeat, this was one of the best crab cakes I have ever had. Of course, that is one of the best things about Thai Spice. Yes, it’s a Thai restaurant, but it’s also known for its fantastic seafood and steaks.

Food for Thought 2We continued on our seafood roll and split the Blue Crab Tom Ka – a creamy coconut broth filled with blue crab pieces, mushrooms, fresh lemon grass and scallions. J scooped me out a small bowl while he ate from the larger one and long story short, after I was done my serving, I dove in on his. I’ve had chicken Tom Ka, but the crab meat elevated this soup to the next level.

For his entrée, J ordered the Cowboy Steak, which was highly recommended by our server. The 18 ounce prime bone-in rib eye chop was dry aged for 30 days and marinated in secret exotic herbs and ginger garlic soy sauce and grilled over an open fire. Served with a side Jasmine rice and sautéed baby bok choy, the steak also comes with a Tiger Tear dipping sauce, which I found slightly spicy, but also sweet.

The steak was tender and juicy and just as decadent as it sounds. The large portion is a must for steak lovers.

I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass which was sautéed with baby bok choy and baby shitake mushrooms and a coconut cream, sauce and basil. Everything we had so far was delicious, but this was the definite showstopper. J barely even likes seafood (well, unless it’s breaded and fried) and he kept digging into my plate. The Sea Bass truly melts in your mouth and the fantastic coconut cream sauce had a light curry flavor.

For dessert, we split the fried bananas in house made coconut ice cream and a mini Bananas Foster cake. Both were sweet and satisfying, and the homemade coconut ice cream was delicious.

 Food For Thought 3We had a fabulous evening at Thai Spice and are excited to see what’s coming next for this amazing Fort Lauderdale establishment.
