Whether you're heading to a concert at the Winter Gardens, riding the rollercoasters at the Pleasure Beach, or just chilling out in Lancashire's premier resort, Blackpool's Thai restaurants are great places to fill up on gourmet fare. These Southeast Asian specialists will spice up anyone's trip to the coast, with their classic curries, filling noodle bowls and sharing platters. So, when you want to add a dash of the exotic east to your gastronomic schedule, let Quandoo show you the way to Blackpool's finest Thai restaurants.
You'll find a wide range of Thai chefs at work in the region, turning out stunning examples of Thailand's culinary culture. Some of the very best can be found in Blackpool city centre, where Thai restaurants like Boonnak are among the North West's Asian elite. One of the great things about these spots is their choice of standard mains and Bangkok street food. Dishes like sai ua (a kind of spiced sausage served with sticky rice) jostle with popular mains like deep fried whole sea bass, offering a spectrum of Siamese food that you won't find at similar eateries.
However, while street food and lesser known dishes are on the agenda at Blackpool's Thai restaurants, local eateries are also adept at whipping up dishes that foodies know and love. Their green curries will be carefully prepared, with just the right proportions of lime, galangal, coriander, lemongrass (and, of course, chilli). They keep the tamarind levels at the perfect pitch in their pad Thais, while their sweet and sour stir fries let both tastes express themselves in style, without any dominant overtones. It's that kind of skill that marks out Blackpool's Thai restaurants as exceptional.
Another strong point of Thai restaurants in Blackpool are their starters. Having the option of picking three or four small plates is one of the most attractive things about Thailand's cuisine, and these eateries offer plenty of choice. From tempura veg, spring rolls, prawn toasts, satay sticks, and tom yum soup, to chicken on toast and corn cakes, you'll easily be able to assemble a meal to adore from their starters selection.
