A bit of a fuss is being made about PaaDee, the new Thai restaurant featuring comfort food. PaaDee literally means “to bring good things”, and judging by their menu, this new Thai restaurant will be bringing some Thai dishes, that are different from most Portland Thai restaurants. Owners Nik and Jen of Kinara Thai Bistroand Mee-Sen’s co-founder Earl Nunsom, have set to create a restaurant that duplicates their passion for Thai “comfort food”. You can see the menu in an earlier post here. It is located at 6 SE 28th Ave, in the striking Sunrose condominium building.
Unusual for a Thai restaurant, the menu is commitment to seasonal, natural, hormone free and naturally raised meat and poultry. Everything is locally sourced. This includes sustainable and non-endangered seafood. Ingredients are from Nicky Farms, Draper Valley Farms, Carlton Farms, Viridion Farms, Cascade Range beef, Ota Tofu (my favorite), Pacific Seafood, Aloha Juice Co. and Coava coffee.
