The Quarry Ponds Town Center in Granite Bay has seen a welcome addition with the opening of My Thai Table.
Featuring a large, serene patio and a huge open kitchen, the restaurant is co-joined by a large hallway that attaches the corner restaurant to the shopping center’s retail space. This little quirk is easily overlooked, however, as My Thai Table—with its soaring ceiling and richly colored walls—is clearly a defined space.
My dining partner and I began our meal with the chicken satay, which featured four marinated and grilled chicken tenders accompanied by peanut sauce and a cucumber salad. The chicken was flavorful and juicy, which can be a difficult task, but My Thai Table nailed it. For entrées, my dining partner selected the Thai ginger stir-fry, which consisted of sautéed beef with a medley of garlic, onions, mushrooms, bell peppers and fresh ginger. The steak and veggie combination was both savory and spicy, yet surprisingly light. All menu items can be made according to your spice preference and come with a choice of brown or white rice. I chose the papaya salad (Ms. Meg’s Som Tom), a combination of green papaya, tomatoes and peanuts, seasoned with lime, garlic and nam pla (fish sauce). To create a heartier dish, I asked for grilled prawns on my salad—a request that was readily granted. The owner handpicks all produce items at a local farmers’ market, and this salad spectacularly showcased the farm-to-table freshness.
My Thai Table’s master chefs, along with the owner, have deep roots from Petchaboon, Thailand, and their dedication to reproducing quality, authentic dishes here in Granite Bay is a refreshing change of pace. As we stood up, meal having been devoured, I asked our attentive server about the Thai writing that sprawled over the walls. She replied they were sayings of well wishes—a sentiment that patrons of My Thai Table undoubtedly reciprocate.
