Last year during Planet Comicon, we went to Bo Lings for some absolutely delicious Chinese food. But after we left, I spotted a Thai restaurant called Phikul Thai Bistro and decided I’d definitely need to try it in the future.
Luckily for me, we got to do that this year.
Saturday of Planet Comicon this year, we took the free Kansas City streetcar over to the River Market area, and walked a few feet from the stop to Phikul Thai Bistro.
I wish my brain wouldn’t have been quite so tired and I would have thought to take more pictures inside, because the restaurant was so beautiful and welcoming. The decor, colors, layout: all of it really made the experience even more inviting. On top of that, the service was friendly and excellent. We absolutely adored our waiter.
Being the absolute sucker I am for crab rangoon, I always order it if it’s on the menu. Luckily for me, they had some, and it hit the spot after a long day at con.
Then came the entrée part of the meal. I’m a huge fan of Pad See Ew (or variations of the spelling, as it’s spelled here, Pad Sew Eaew), so I always try it at new restaurants to check out their take on the noodle dish.
From the menu description on the Phikul Thai Bistro website: “Stir-fried flat noodles in dark, rich and sweet soy sauce with broccoli and Gai lan.”
It was so delicious, and absolutely the perfect dinner to end my night with.
If you love Thai food and you’re in the Kansas City, MO area, definitely head over to Phikul Thai Bistro and enjoy their incredible food and wonderful service.
