Thaiphoon in Dupont Circle

On my way back to the hotel from the National Archives Building, I stopped by a small Thai restaurant that I passed several times. Thaiphoon is a local chain offering traditional Thai dishes with colorful and quirky decor. It was fairly hot out and I needed a nice cold glass of Thai iced tea.

My favorite!

I ordered a couple appetizers.

I tried the Fresh Roll made with steamed‏ rice paper, cucumbers, bean sprouts, mint leaves, carrots, cilantro and rice noodles. It was served with a sweet sauce with peanuts. It was a light refreshing dish.

I had the usual chicken satay as well. I don’t know why, but I order these almost every time I dine at a Thai restaurant. It’s just so simple and flavorful. The grilled chicken is marinated in Thai spices and served with a peanut sauce and cucumber relish. They were okay.

Lunch was okay. The Thai iced tea was probably the best part. I headed back to the hotel.
