Le Thai Café brings authentic Thai food to Pittsburgh’s northern suburbs.
Thai cuisine is world famous for its complex flavors. A single dish can be sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy at the same time. As with many countries, there are numerous regional cuisines within Thailand, and these areas are influenced by their neighboring countries and ethnic populations. But while Thai cuisine borrows from that of China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Persia, and India, the collective palate of Thailand is as unique as the country itself.
One of the hallmarks of Thai cuisine is the use of fresh herbs. Not only do fresh herbs enhance the flavor of food, herbs such as basil contain essential oils and antioxidants. Thai dishes often make use of chili peppers, which not only add spice and flavor, but also contribute to your health by providing vitamin C and other nutrients. Of course we can adjust the spice level to your liking.
