Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, Davis
by Edie Campbell-Urban
When I heard that we were planning a Sac Foodies Thai week I knew
instantly where I would be heading: being a recent graduate of UC Davis, I chose Sophia’s Thai Kitchen in downtown Davis, an old favorite and above all, an excellent choice for Thai cuisine. It wasn’t hard to convince my friend visiting from out of town to join me!
The first thing I ordered was a Thai iced tea. If you are looking for an energy boost this is it! Not to mention they taste amazing, and the refills are unlimited! For my entree I decided to go with a simple but flavorful dish, Thai Fried Rice with Chicken: stir-fried rice with egg, tomatoes, green onions, Sriracha sauce topped with cilantro. (And for those vegetarians out there you can always substitute the chicken for tofu :))
The chicken was marinated in a rich sauce and mixed in with the rice and vegetables made this rice dish a very delicious and filling meal. If you’re in the mood for something a little less spicy but still booming with flavor I highly recommend this Thai Fried Rice.
If you get the opportunity to take a trip to Downtown Davis, I would make a point to stop at Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, it is definitely worth the drive!
