Sisters Thai, The Ordinary Cafe in Fairfax, Virginia is far from being ordinary.
Walking in, I could not help but be intrigued. There is a giant movie marquee with the restaurants name.
One wall is filled with books, making the cafe look like a little bookstore.
The place just has an overall cute, unique and homey vibe. This theme somewhat even overflows to the menu as the menu consists of a variety of traditional homestyle Thai cuisine as well as interesting Thai street foods.
To start off my meal, I chose to get the Angel wings.
I have always been a fan of angel wings. Here at Sisters Thai they had three chicken wings stuffed with ground chicken, glass noodles and veggies. There was sweet chili dipping sauce on the side. Golden deep fried and perfectly crisp on the outside, this appetizer was delightful! The chicken itself simply came off the bone. The filling was well seasoned and every bite was just heavenly. This appetizer truly was an angel.
After the Angel wings, I tried the Drunken Noodles with beef.
This was one spicy dish. The flat noodles were topped with plenty of beef mixed in with some spicy chili peppers, basils and jalapeños.It’s one very flavorful dish sure to bring a bit of fire to your mouth.
To offset, the heat of this dish, I had an order of Yellow Curry with chicken.
I am a big fan of curry. I find the complex combinations of spices and herbs to make this creamy creation so delightful. Sisters Thai does a good job with their curry. There was plenty of thick, curry sauce with tender pieces of chicken, sliced carrots and potatoes. I was quite pleased with putting all this curry over the white rice. It was very fulfilling.
I really enjoyed dining at Sisters Thai, The Ordinary Cafe. As I mentioned in the beginning of this blog post, Sisters Thai is far from ordinary. The overall atmosphere is intriguing yet comforting. Their food is traditional yet distinct in taste. It was no ordinary day for me when I dined here.
