The Food of Racha Thai

I have traveled all around Thailand sampling food from sidewalk vendors to big restaurants before I opened Racha Thai. I talked to many people and asked them for the best and most famous dishes in their town. On my journey I discovered lots of great local food. Thai food is ubiquitous in Seattle, but here in our restaurant you will find special and unique Thai dishes from the North, North Eastern, Southern and Central regions of Thailand including some from our neighbors, presented to you with care and love by our chef team recruited from Thailand and lead by Chef Deang.

If the menu item has 2 stars next to it, it cannot be prepared at a level less than 2.

If the menu item has 3 stars next to it, it cannot be prepared at a level less than 3.

If the menu item has 4 stars next to it, it cannot be prepared at a level less than 4.

Curry is our specialty

All of the curry dishes served at Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen are prepared, step by step, fresh, in house. Our curry is the most flavorful because our chef handpicks all of the ingredients to assure the highest level of freshness. In our recipes, each curry type is pre-paired with a specific kind of meat as each curry has its own distinctive taste when combined with meat. Our team of chefs have tasted every dish over and over again, until they are confident that every customer will only get pleasure from their recipes. Ingredients are combined and slow cooked with a meat selection in advance since curry becomes more and more delicious after the flavors have blended and bonded together.

Experience all of the most popular Thai curry dishes in one place – traditional flavors from northern and central to the southern part of the Kingdom of Thailand, everything from fish and prawns to beef and duck, plus vegetables or tofu curries.

Green Curry:

called “Gaeng Keow Wan” in Thai. This curry paste is made with fresh green chilies.

Panang Curry:

an Indian-inspired curry with the least vegetables among all kinds of curries

Massaman Curry:

originated in Muslim cuisine, has medium spicy flavor. The color is yellow-brown, with sweet & thick texture.

Red Curry Paste:

This spicy red curry is made from dried red chilies. This is the most popular type of curry in Thailand.

Yellow Curry:

is the least hot curry paste but it is both rich and fragrant. Turmeric gives the yellow color to this curry paste.

Thai Food:

Over the past 20 years or so, Thai food has become increasingly popular worldwide, especially in the USA and here in the Pacific Northwest. More and more people are enjoying the variety of Thai cuisine and the intriguing flavors found in Thai and other Asian dishes. It is that variety and special flavors that you will discover and enjoy at Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen. When you do, please know that it did not happen by accident. Here’s why…

In preparing to open Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen at Westfield Southcenter Mall, I took extra time to travel around Thailand. My objective was to find the best and most famous dishes of each town and region that I visited. My search took me from Bangkok north up to Mae Sai near the border with Burma, then northeast to the Thailand-Laos border, and then south to Had Yai and Songkla near the Thailand-Malaysia border.

From place to place, I talked to people about the foods of the area and asked them where I could find the best and most famous dishes in their town. From humble street-sidewalk venders to big restaurants, I compared and selected the best recipes. But, I did not stop there…I also recruited the best chefs to come join our team here at Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen to cook the best foods!

During my journey, I discovered the many great local foods that I now present to you. I also came to realize that Thailand is at the hub of many great Asian foods. Many foods of Thailand’s neighbors were well-known and popular with Thai people. So, rather than leave those recipes behind, I decided to bring the best of them to our menu for you to enjoy alongside our Thai dishes.

Fortunately (although it would be enjoyable), you do not have to spend two months like I did exploring Thailand to find the best and most famous foods it has to offer. You can simply sit back and let my team of chefs, led by Chef Deang, present you with what we believe to be the best selection of foods from the Northern, Northeastern, Central and Southern regions of Thailand, and a few from its neighbors, that you will find anywhere.

CHEF PROFILES

CHEF PROFILES

 

Chef Daeng

With over 37 years of experience in the hospitality business, Chef Daeng is a true diamond in the crown that is now Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen. She started work in her family-owned restaurant before moving on to join the Imperial Hotel Group in 1973. Once there, she soon showed her cooking talents by creating many dishes. This led to an invitation to become Chef at the Imperial Hotel a few years later. Her theory, “Make normal food look like royal food,” was a key to her success at the hotel. While still working for the Imperial Group, she was sent to France to open a chain of new Thai restaurants. Her cooking talent became certified by most of Europe when her creative “Tamarind Duck” won 3rd prize in the Asian Food Category at the 1992 International Food Contest held in Lynne, France. She has been with Racha Thai and Asian Kitchen as an executive chef since 2000.

Punya Tipyasothi

From his first job in a restaurant as a dishwasher 22 years ago, Punya has learned lots of secret recipes from many great chefs. He traveled all over Thailand and South East Asia in search of new innovative ideas and recipes for his restaurant. He opened the first Racha in 1997 and now with help and support from Chef Daeng, and his friends and family in Thailand, he opened Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen in Westfield Southcenter Mall Tukwila, Washington and in Clackamas Town Center, Happy Valley, Oregon. His concept for Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen is maintain good authentic Thai recipes and add chef specials for customers who want to try new innovative dishes from our chef team. He keeps the standard high for cleanliness in his restaurants, serves filtered drinking water, and uses the freshest high quality ingredients… as you can see here. Eat like Thais is another menu created by his team for people who love to eat a real tasty and spicy Thai Food..

Tipsucha Bangthamai (Kae)

Kae’s cooking talent shined when she was only 18 years old. Kae won the 1st prize “Thai Dessert Contest” award at the national level. Along with the award, Kae received a scholarship to further her cooking education at ‘Suan Dusit Rajabhat University’, one of the top ranked food institutes in Thailand. Kae’s cooking career started at ‘The Mandarin Oriental Hotel’, the world’s most luxurious hotel, legendary for more than 130 years and the highest destination for many cooks in Thailand. After many years of gaining experience at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kae has now joined Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen.

Kaew Thapan

It took us more than 2 years to convince this diamond to join us at Racha. Kaew was revealed to us as we stopped by at his restaurant while we were on a research trip in Southeast Asia. Tasting his food, we all agreed that it was one of the best Thai food we ever had. Kaew’s first job was in a little restaurant on the east side of Bangkok, from there he learned how to cook Thai food from scratch. At the age of 15, Kaew decided to elevate his professional level in a 3 star hotel, and continued climbing up, from time to time, until he became the chef at the 5 star casino resort “Tropicana” in Cambodia when he turned 35. With more than 20 years of cooking experience, Kaew is now cooking “Real Thai Food” for you at RACHA.

Wipawadee Santhaweesuk

With a passion for dessert and desire to be a pastry chef “Wipawadee” decided to quit law school and enrolled in pastry school at the Royal Culinary School, where she learned Thai pastry from top chefs who make dessert for the Royal Family. She learned western style pastry when she worked at Mango Three in the Four Seasons Hotel in Macau. From then she creates her own pastry by combining techniques and tastes of east and west that make her desserts unique and so good.
