Thai Lunch - Co Ed

  • January 12, 2013 · 11:00 AM

Lets try the long awaited modern Thai restaurant, Sway.  It has finally opened under the management of the Lamberts and La Condesa group. Great attention is paid to the quality, preparation and presentation of the numberous Thai dishes and beverages.  The dishes are meant to be shared: HOWEVER, these are not large portions so no worries about pleasing others...just please yourself and I think you will with the amazing favors. They also feature some interesting and delicious teas and beverages as well as delicious desserts in just the right size. This casual restaurant features communal tables and a minimalistic - yet warm - atmosphere.  Its a great experience.

Join us for an early Saturday lunch at Sway.

 

From Yelp:

Fun Thai(-ish) food in a warm, open setting... currently open a few weeks. Food and drinks are interesting, and individually well executed. Currently crowded, but we (group of six) got seated right away by arriving early. Nice to see they carried the Pok Pok drinking vinegars -- I'd been wanting to try them for the novelty -- but the server's top two (of four) recommendations were "sold out". (Note to management:  include "what is not available tonight" in daily staff briefings.)

So, it's a fun one (or two) time ride on a Thai food merry go round. Enjoy it for that. We liked the salt + pepper cuttlefish, prawn miange, xo mussels, som tam, and blue crab fried rice, in roughly that order. Kids had the jungle curry (which was not terribly spicy, hence very inauthentic 8^)  ).

I want to go back and try the shu mai, pad kwetio, and a curry other than the jungle...

Dessert menu just seems weird...formless... too many really sweet things. It certainly wasn't grounded that I could tell in Thai "street sweets".
