The rumors have turned out to be true that a Thai take-out will open at the front end of the laundromat at 754A St. Nicholas Avenue and 148th Street. A reader provided a tip that Tri Thai Cuisine has finally opened in the rounded glass block atrium of walk-in laundry and dry cleaning establishment last Friday. We checked it out this weekend and found that the cuisine and proprietors do match up (most asian establishments uptown are run by chinese owners) and the take-out corner oddly pleasing in a contemporary fashion. Green, red or yellow Thai curry options are only around the $5.00 range and we noted a lot of the signature Holy Basil ingredient enhancing the dishes. Curry filled pastry puffs are all under $1.00 and they sell Thai iced coffee along with other beverages. The owners mentioned that they will try to open a sit-down restaurant in the area if the take-out service does well. So if you are in the Heights, make sure to drop by the only authentic Thai take-out above 110th Street. Delivery service will be up soon but they don't have menus printed as of this moment. As a reader noted in the past, the dream of getting one's laundry AND Thai food delivered has finally become a reality. Only in Harlem folks! Closest subways are at the A,B,C,D stop on 145th Street.
