Surin of Thailand: Thai Taco Tuesday

On a heavily traveled corner of the Virginia Highlands, Surin of Thailand has been a long-time staple of the community serving up Thai food favorites like volcano pot soup, curries, fried rice dishes, and even Thai-inspired cocktails. We arrived on a Tuesday evening, where the restaurant was relatively busy, and found that even a Thai restaurant can get you into the Taco Tuesday mood. Let’s take a food adventure into everything Surin of Thailand.


Fat Tuesday Is the Last Day to Party Before Ushering in 40 Days of Good Behavior!

Go party with The White Bull in honor of their 2nd Anniversary and be ready to Grab. A. Fork. The White Bull is the ONLY place in Atlanta that hosts The Polenta Party crafted by Chef/Owner Pasquale “Pat” Pascarella. An interactive, table-top dining experience starts with fresh greens and to-die-for bread and butter then the magic happens. The Polenta Table– a generous serving of freshly-milled, piping-hot polenta poured down the center of The White Bull’s extensive communal table. Chef Pat then tops off the polenta with a variety proteins and locally-sourced veggies. Final touches of fresh Pecorino Romano cheese and high-quality olive oil, accompany the polenta spread–all directly from Chef Pat’s Italian homeland. Oh, and there’s dessert to top it off! And the best part?? There aren’t any plates! $65 a person.
