with Sarah from the Elgin/St. Thomas Small Business Enterprise Centre
On Instagram @SBECinnovation #TasteofStThomas
I love small business, but I may love food-based enterprises most of all. Food has always been at the centre of everything for me. Whether it was afternoons in the kitchen with my mom, days spent entertaining at home, or menu selection for special events throughout my career: food has been woven into my life as I am sure it has been in yours. And in a time when we can't necessarily sit down together to share a meal, I am excited to have the opportunity to share a meal with you in this way - through words; another thing I love.
Our first stop on this Downtown St. Thomas dining adventure is Le Cafe Siam. This family-owned and operated restaurant is a jewel in the west end of downtown St. Thomas featuring an extensive menu of authentic Thai options. Dishes range from widely available, like Pad Thai, to more uncommonly seen on Thai restaurant offerings like Tom Kha and Panang Curry.
Orders are always started fresh using authentic, high-quality ingredients - as if the dishes are for their own family. If you have never stepped into the world of flavour that Thai cooking has to offer - Le Cafe Siam is an incredible start to that journey.
Currently, patrons can enjoy ordering for take-out and delivery Tuesday - Saturday for lunch and dinner and if you are interested in placing an order call 519.637.2287 during business hours. The menu and updated business hours are available on the restaurant's Facebook page at Le Cafe Siam: Thai Cuisine.
Be prepared to wait a bit for your food remembering that dish preparation begins when you order. These unique recipes take time to ensure that you taste the quality and care that goes into each one.
Le Cafe Siam is located at 392 Talbot St. in St. Thomas.
