Having noticed that Erawan moved from their former location on South Land Park and 35th Avenue, we decided to make a takeout order from their new location on Freeport Boulevard. By the time we figure out what to order, it was already 30 minutes before closing time, but the staff had no problem taking the order.
Today, we decided to order the Pad Thai, Red Curry with pork, Chicken Larb, and sticky rice. The Pad Thai came with plenty of prawns and chicken and was all flavored to a classic Pad Thai taste. There were plenty of noodles to go along with the meat. The red curry had a variety of vegetables in it including bell peppers, bamboo shoots, and basil. The pork tasted great with my curry-soaked rice. Although I asked for hot, the curry did not taste that hot, so next time I may need to ensure they put enough pepper in the dish. The Chicken Larb Salad tasted ok, but I felt that there were too many shallots, and green onions in the dish. Also the larb had quite a bit of juice in the container, which did not make it as appetizing.
Overall, Erawan serves up great tasting Thai food at fairly affordable prices. However, I would still prefer Siam Restaurant even though it is a bit farther of a drive. With that said, Erawan is a good backup with a large menu to order from. Even with its faults, I will probably try them again, but be more specific in the ingredients I want used in the dishes. If you want to try some fairly authentic Thai cuisine, then Erawan will serve it up.
