 Fit to be Thai-ed

We’ve been waiting awhile now because, you know, one things this state lacks is Thai restaurants. At long last, Ubon Thai Cuisine opens Nov. 9. Brought to you by the same good people of Jeenwong in Wilmington’s Riverfront Market, Ubon promises food that is every bit as delicious in a much nicer atmosphere. Chef Norrawit Milburn intends to deliver the best of his family’s recipes—served for almost 30 years—with modern influences and touches from other parts of Asia. That means famous egg rolls, spicy soups, delicious rice and noodle dishes, curry entrées and—brilliant—desserts by chef Dana Herbert of Cakes by Dana, winner of TLC’s “Next Great Baker.” Order tickets for opening night at, or reserve a table for as soon as you can get in. Call 656-1706. The restaurant is at 936 Justison St., Wilmington, in the Shipyard Shops on the Riverfront.  Click here to view article.

 The spicy-sweet-sour-salty cuisine of Thailand has never been more popular. Western diners and restaurateurs alike love the balance of fresh herbs, smooth coconut milk, salty fish sauce and hot chilies. Fresh ingredients make for clean and bright flavors, says Norrawit Jeenwong Milburn, chef and co-owner at Jeenwong Thai Cuisine. “We go to the market every morning and handpick beef, chicken, vegetables,” he says. Dishes tend to vary slightly by region, but a few key ingredients tend to pop up. Coconut milk, lemon grass, chilies, garlic and basil are blended in lots of dishes. That harmony is the key to great Thai food. Click here to read the entire article.
