A few months ago, we told you about some of the best Thai food in Bham being served out of a gas station in Hoover. Blue Pacific, as it’s called, became very popular very quickly. Think, 1000 shares on Facebook line out the door popular.
And then suddenly, it was closed. This created some chaos in the Bham foodie scene. Where did it go? Would it come back?
Well foodies, I’m here to tell you that it’s back. It’s still owned by the same family. They seem to have expanded the seating area quite a bit (though the mini mart is still functional-so I can still eat my meal with a diet A&W root beer).
And, because I am here to serve you, my loyal blog fans, Mr Foodie and I have returned not once, not twice, but three times to verify the quality. The quality remaims the same-excellent, authentic Thai food at cheap prices served out of a gas station. What more could you ask for?
A few favorite photos from our recent trips:
The new menu. Pretty similar to before with a few new items. Note that they are open on Mondays – that solves the problem of where to eat every Monday night when everything else except for Bamboo on 2nd is closed.
The pad thai. Previously, we noted that the pad Thai was not sweet like other pad thais in town, and this was a very good thing. We are pleased to report that the pad thai is similarly savory, and now has a very attractive egg lattice on top. Very photogenic, A+ taste.
Next up, chicken coconut soup. Spicy and lime-y and creamy at the same time. Still my favorite in town. Huge portion.
