Restaurant Review: Thai Steak House

 


I have a secret for you.  There is a place in Ozark, Arkansas, where you can get the best tofu curry I have ever had.  Josh used to work in a cabinet shop in the area when we were in college, and occasionally we'd meet down in Ozark at the Thai Steak House.  The first time we went, I was very wary from the outside, but the food is amazing.  Every time we come through the area, we try to stop.  So, when I wanted to meet up with my roommate, David, from college, that's where we went.


The menu has changed slightly, adding sushi, but most of my favorites were still there.  To this day, no other restaurant can make crispy, firm tofu cubes like this place.  We ordered tea and looked over the menu, but I knew what I wanted.



Spring rolls.  I search and search in restaurants for good spring rolls, but none are as good as these.  Ask for them without egg and with tofu (not shrimp) to make vegan, and you'll be super happy.  The peanut sauce that comes with it is amazing, especially with a hit of sriracha.  They had edemame on the menu this time, so I ordered that as well.




For my lunch, I ordered the Thai Green Curry.  They don't list tofu as an option on really anything on the menu, but they are always happy to swap out the meat.  Even non-veg heads would love their tofu.  It's perfectly cooked.  The curry arrived smelling wonderful and perfectly hot, with a small side of rice.  The vegetables were fresh and just cooked enough, and everything together tasted great.  There was just enough heat and just enough sweet from the coconut milk to make the entire meal balanced.




I know this place is a bit out of the way, even from the interstate, but it's worth the drive.  If you're headed through Arkansas, I would try to make a stop and discover this wonderful restaurant.  The owners are friendly and happy to help with questions, and you won't be disappointed.
