Rita Amornmakia has just the antidote to the winter blues – a deliciously spicy green curry.
Rita has been running Thaicoon, the restaurant she opened in Brighton’s Church Street, for three years and knows that people tend to bunker down in the colder months.
“Church Street is a good area and there are a lot of people around enjoying the strip, plenty of foot traffic, although that can slow a little in winter,” she said.
“But we can spice up winter with great food – a Thai green curry or a Pad Thai maybe.”
The intimate eatery caters to small groups and couples, and if you fancy something tasty to grab for dinner on the way home from an afternoon of indulgent Church Street retail therapy, Thaicoon does take out, too.
Thaicoon is just a short walk from Middle Brighton Station and, after a trawl of the delights of Church Street, the aromas wafting from indoors are likely to entice you as you make your way to the restaurant.
If you succumb, there is much on the extensive menu to capture your attention. But just to give you a tiny taster, Rita recommends the massaman curry.
“Our massaman curry is outstanding and probably what we are known for. “And the red duck curry is incredible,” she said.
“Even our entrees and are delicious enough to come in for.”
Other popular items on Thaicoon’s menu are the curry puffs, spring rolls, fish cakes and satay chicken skewers.
With authentic Thai dishes and a casual dining atmosphere, there’s no excuse not to get along to Thaicoon.
