“One of our intentions is to keep everything as uncommercial as possible,” says Teg Brar, co-owner of Thai New West. Teg and his wife Vara specialize in traditional Thai food, with no high-concept experimental fusion. “This is pure, fresh cuisine. If you came to our house you would get the food we serve here. We want to retain that.”

As in a Thai household, what that means in practice is ordering fresh meats and produce every two days, and sourcing the unusual ingredients that Thai chefs like Vara would have taken for granted back home: galangal (also known as blue ginger), lime leaf and lemongrass. Curry pastes are made from scratch and prepared to order rather than kept in a pot all day. Same with the spring rolls, which are not rolled until a customer orders them.

“It shows in the freshness and flavour. Anyway, we don’t have a big freezer and can’t do a lot of things with frozen food that other restaurants can do,” he laughs. “Our kitchen is a shoebox.”

Extraordinary Thai

When visiting my friend at nearby Royal Columbian Hospital we stumbled upon this stylish eatery and decided to give it a try! The restaurant is beautifully furnished and warm with dark wooden floor. We ordered the Pad Thai, Green curry and crispy spring rolls. While we waited for the food we could hear the other table rave about their dishes to the server. I am well acquainted with Thai food and couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about! As my curiosity peaked our spring rolls arrived, well presented and un-oily! Were these really deep fried? The pad thai and green curry were extraordinary! This is probably the best Thai food I've ever tasted and I'll be back with family very soon.
