Tommy’s Thai – Denver, Colorado
If I was forced to choose my favorite restaurant in this city, it would probably be Tommy’s Thai. This little Colfax gem has been in business for over 20 years and offers a variety of Thai and Chinese fare. My personal favorite is the pad thai. Every ingredient is fresh and despite the fact that it contains wide noodles (not usually my bag), this dish doesn’t leave you with that overstuffed feeling. Tommy’s pad thai is made with rice noodles, eggs, bean sprouts, ground peanuts, and green onions. AND, it is gluten-free! Can’t beat that. I should also note that Tommy’s egg rolls are award winning. They are quite good. I haven’t tried a better one anywhere else.
Most people don’t realize that the owners of Tommy’s have another restaurant in Littleton called Wild Ginger. Wild Ginger has not been around as long as Tommy’s. They offer a lot of the same dishes, but their menu is more focused on traditional Thai food. Wild Ginger is closer to where Andy lives and so we frequent both restaurants.
Things to keep in mind: Tommy’s is small and they do not take reservations of any kind. Plan accordingly. Wind Ginger is a little larger and they do take reservations,
