Best Thai and Sushi may not be the best Thai and sushi ever, but it certainly is the best in Zephyrhills, Florida. This small and unassuming restaurant has a large menu filled with vegan options. We started with a chilled bottle of sake that was oh so good!
For appetizers, we ordered the avocado rolls, which were your typical avocado rolls. They were great on the first visit, but not as good on the second as the rice was pretty wet the second time. But, it is hard to go wrong with standard avocado rolls.
We also tried the vegetable tempura. It wasn't the best tempura I've already had, but I appreciated the creativity with the dish. Instead of the standard veggies, we got onions, sweet potato, broccoli, and eggplant for just $5.50.
For my entree, I ordered the Green Curry. You can choose vegetables OR tofu for $10.50, which seems kind of weird in a vegetable dish as I assume vegetables come with it. If you want both, you pay $1 extra. I stuck with just vegetables -- bamboo shoots, bell peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, and snow peas in a coconut milk-based green curry with basil. I loved it.
Chris ordered a fried rice dish with veggies, which he really enjoyed.
On our second visit, we ordered the spring rolls, which were really good. They were deep fried and filled with bean thread noodles, cabbage, and carrots and served with a plum sauce.
For my entree, I had the Garlic Black Pepper Sauce with vegetables and tofu for $10.50. This was a spectacular black pepper sauce with cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, and tofu with brown rice. The sauce was a bit watery, but the flavor was definitely there.
Each time I ordered, I specified that I did not want fish sauce and they were happy to oblige. I had great experiences at the Best Thai and Sushi again this time. The service was fine, the prices were appropriate, and the food was great. Highly recommended if you are in the area!
