Review: Ridge Thai of Ridgewood, NJ
Ridge Thai gives you exactly what you would expect it to – authentic Thai food that will satisfy the exotic side of any palette. We started with some very tasty appetizers that included Sa-Tay and Mee-Groab. The Sa-Tay, which is a barbecued marinated chicken served in a peanut sauce was delicious. You can never go wrong with a good peanut sauce and this sauce certainly hit the mark. The Mee-Groab consisted of crispy rice noodles in a tamarind sauce. It also came with fresh lettuce and bean sprouts.
One of our group also tried the Tom Kha Gai, a sort of chicken soup made with coconut milk, onions and lime juice. Once you accept the notion that all these ingredients were mixed together to make the soup, it’s easier to enjoy this strange yet slightly exotic tasting concoction. This soup would not be the first dish we sampled on a return trip but it would not be something to shy away from either.
No trip to a Thai restaurant would be complete without sampling the curry. We had the Green Curry with beef and it was very good but not great. Our entrees were traditional favorites and they did not disappoint. We split a Pad Tua-Lun-Tow [onions, mushrooms, snow peas, and baby corn] with beef and a Pra Ram Long Song with chicken. The peanut sauce on the chicken was once again incredible and completely made the dish. The beef dish was also quite good. Overall, it was a pleasurable experience at reasonable prices. The entrees were priced under $13 while appetizers and soup were also priced accordingly. This BYOB eatery on Chestnut Street exceeded our expectations and we’re looking forward to going back again soon. Click here for more details: http://www.mybergen.com/
