Restaurants and shopping centers around our town are consistently crowded, so I want to share a place that is a little off the path and is not a mainstream restaurant. Many of you Lubbockites probably know about this place, but I want to share with you my favorite Thai restaurant is town, Thai Pepper.
Oddly enough I am not a fan of Thai or Asian food, but once I was introduced to Thai Pepper I was hooked. The restaurant is very close to campus and was a good price to fit my small budget. All of the food is custom made, so for any of you with special diets (gluten free, vegetarian) there are several options on and off the menu. The menu consists of typical options ranging from chicken, rice, and pad Thai. I personally LOVE the chicken noodle soup. Imagine a giant bowl of Thai spiced noodles with cilantro and broccoli, yum! You are also served wonton chips and sweet chili sauce for your appetizer.
The food really is great. If you are interested in any other reviews, click here. The meat and vegetables are fresh and give the food an excellent taste. Thai Pepper is a staple of Lubbock and has been around for quite some time. It is good place to take family and friends without spending a lot of money or eating at the typical chain restaurants. Keep in mind it is by Covenant hospital and gets very busy during the lunch hour. Also, don’t be surprised to see a “Closed” sign on their door for several days/weeks when they take vacation.
