BEST EATS: Ocha Thai Restaurant

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Fork out shut awareness when buying at Ocha Thai Restaurant. When the menu suggests an entree is spicy, it’s not joking about.

I observed that out when I selected the hen larb, pretty significantly an automatic get for me any time I check out a Thai cafe. The ground hen cooked with a boatload of spices and served with cabbage or cucumbers or lettuce, perhaps even sticky rice, is usually a superior simply call.

The chicken larb is spicy at Ocha Thai Restaurant.

As served at Ocha Thai, it is also an very spicy 1. A handful of bites in and there ended up tears in my eyes. I wanted a second Diet regime Coke to complete my plate.

The cafe, positioned on the southwest corner of White and Hughes lanes, has an remarkable range of noodle dishes, soups, salads and a actually astonishing amount of shrimp dishes, including sweet and sour shrimp and ground shrimp omelette.

The drunken noodles with pork is a significant portion of thick noodles stir-fried with pepper, onion, tomato, egg and basil in a sweetish sauce. There are chiles, but nothing at all in close proximity to as powerful as what the larb contained. I extra some chili paste for a lot more bite.

No matter whether you like your foods moderate or as blistering as an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo, Ocha Thai will fulfill your wants.
