Savor – Signature Dish: Big Thai

BY M.K. Barnes

Big Thai (1001 N. 4th Street 910-763-3035 and Landfall Center 910-256-6588) serves genuine Bangkok-style Thai cuisine in a tranquil and inviting setting. “Its as authentic as Thai can get. Everyone here is from Thailand ” says server (and translator) Bick Stevens. In their signature dish Spicy Eggplant diced sections of eggplant are lightly fried mixed with an assortment of freshly cut peppers and simmered in a zesty chili sauce before being mixed with your choice of pan-seared chicken beef or shrimp. This fabulous fusion is served on a bed of finely shredded greens and is accompanied by a side of steaming jasmine rice.
