Thai spicy lemon grass soup with shrimp, mushrooms, red onions, tomatoes, Chinese parsley and Thai herbs. Cup $6.50
Original Thai Cuisine, Kailua-Kona HI
We decided to switch it up with food and find out how Hawaiians do Thai! We had mixed reviews. The soups were really good and flavorful. $6.50 is normally a lot for a cup of soup, but they’re actually the size of bowls. We didn’t know this place was BYOB otherwise we would have brought a case, lol!
I’m not sure if this was actually baked, it had a semi-fried texture to me. Maybe it was just finished in the oven. But it was very flavorful and delicious. A bit on the salty side especially if you add the fish sauce, but I think Vietnamese food tends to be salty anyway.
