A big part of our culture reflects on the food we eat. Thai food just like any other element of the country reflects its diversity, culture, its people, originality and the values it stands on. Thai food is extremely diverse, can be mild or spicy on the pallet and has flavors that are otherwise unexplored by the human tongue.
Thai food has received immense popularity over the last few decades. While other Asian cuisines are modified to suit the taste of the locals, Thai recipes are mostly unchanged all over the world. Thai food has made its way to Niagara Falls and has become a large part of our lives.
This week I went to the Wind, an extremely popular chain of Thai food what has restaurants in St Catharine’s and on Lundy’s lane in Niagara Falls. I had heard about it a lot so I finally decided to give it a try. Upon entering we were greeted by the hostess, shown to our seats and we were handed iPads as menu cards. The Wind is cautious about paper wastage and supports green initiatives. This is an all you can eat restaurant where customers order a variety of delicious Thai food through the iPad and the waitresses serve them. Wasting food is highly discouraged and there is a cost implied for wastage. We ordered many dishes, including Thai green curry, Thai red curry and Thai fried rice, among others.
The food is extremely delicious and the service was pretty decent considering that Wind is an all you can eat restaurant. The price is a major factor for any student who wants to enjoy a mouthwatering meal that is so enjoyable that it is almost sinful. Wind offers a full meal at the price of 30-35 dollars which can be a bit pricey for students. However it is perfect for a special occasion and gathering. Overall, I had a good time at Wind. I would recommend my friends to try Wind if they want to experience Thai food and I guarantee you will fall in love with it.
