Davis loves Thai food. Seriously. According to DavisWiki, there are currently eight Thai restaurants in town. EIGHT! In a small town that is a lot… and I love it. I’ve tried them all, and always seem to come back to two favorites: Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, which Edie wrote about earlier this week, and KetMoRee.
Those who are familiar with the Davis restaurant scene will remember 2KThai, and would be glad to know that KetMoRee was opened by the same owners as a much expanded version. In fact, many of the same menu items are available, plus so much more. The restaurant tags itself as “fine dining family atmosphere” – not sure what that means, but it’s working.
We always start our meal with the Mango Salad, I’m kind of addicted. (shredded mango, cilantro, green onion, red onion, coconut flakes & cashew nuts).
My husband and I shared an entrée: Yellow Curry with Lamb (lamb in yellow curry with avocado, potato, carrot, onion, bell pepper, served with cucumber salad). This dish was a highlight. I usually stick to yellow curries and the addition of lamb and avocados made this one special.
Finally, for dessert we had the Mango and Sticky Rice (sticky rice, mango, coconut milk and sesame seeds).
KetMoRee is a definite go-to for Thai food in Davis. They also have a full bar, and if you’re a fan of Thai Ice Tea, I recommend their “Hard Thai Ice Tea” – delish!
