After five years of serving Sandy Springs bowl after bowl of flavorful Thai home cooking, Erawan Thai has leveled up with a brand-new sushi bar and a chef whose santoku blade is more like a magic wand.A kitchen that can whip up an authentic bowl of pad kee mao with organic veggies is one thing. A kitchen that can whip up those drunken noodles and a platter of picture-perfect sushi in one fell swoop? Hard to come by, but hey—good things come to those who wait. And Erawan Thai (and their new sushi chef) is what we've been waiting for.
Normally I tend to keep a safe distance from a place that claims expertise in multiple countries' cuisines (fusion ain't always a good thing). But after five years of serving Sandy Springs bowl after bowl of flavorful Thai home cooking, Erawan Thai has leveled up with a brand-new sushi bar and a chef whose santoku blade is more like a magic wand. Right before my own eyes, he sculpted a platter of sashimi and maki rolls so exquisite, I almost refused to let a chopstick near it. If only I had such self-discipline.
Of course, the heart of Erawan has been and always will be their hearty Thai dishes, one hundred percent delicious and, thanks to their focus on organic ingredients, pretty much guaranteed to leave no residual food coma effects. Besides, all that healthy sashimi and organic som tum papaya salad just leaves more room for dessert. And if there's one cuisine that does right by your sweet tooth, it's Thai. Homemade ice cream (mango or coconut), mango sticky rice, Thai coconut custard, or a deep-fried banana... mmm, delicious. Organic. Healthy. And perfect with a big, tall glass of Thai tea.
