In an unassuming simple white building off the very busy Aloma Avenue in Winter Park, sits a uniquely named spot called KrungThep Tea Time. As you walk through the doors for the first time, not knowing what to expect, you are greeted with beautiful white and black decor with plenty of seating for the small Thai fusion based restaurant. A very instagramable spot in the corner is stark white with a cute couch and chandelier, perfect for those foodie pics you’ve been cultivating.
Shelix and I picked a spot right in the middle to really take in the full effect of the peace and quiet while soft music plays in the background. We ordered two teas, the Peach Tea, with actual peach slices on the bottom and one on top, and the Summer Rain, a gorgeous Bahama blue with purple and yellow layers that swirl together into striking colors.
We decided on two sandwiches with the full intention of ordering a dessert, which we have heard are truly distinct and intriguing. After pursuing the menu, I ordered the Bird and Apple, a classic with turkey, apple butter, cheddar, and mozzarella. This sandwich is served on a choice of local artisan bread form Olde Hearth Bread Co. I chose multigrain, knowing that this healthy bread is made with nine different grains.
Shelix ordered the LARB, a delicious sandwich with marinated chicken, mozzarella, red onion, fresh mint leaves, cilantro and spicy roasted rice lime sauce. She decides on sourdough for the bread option which is made with a true San Francisco starter. Though the menu does mention that it is spicy, do not underestimate the spicy level that Thai food can offer. Both sandwiches are served with a small salad that packs a ton of flavor with their house dressing.
For dessert, we settled on The Witch, a “High Hat” option, which in this instance means that it is served with a waffle cone turned upside down and meant to be eaten with a spoon. This dish is served with Premium Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, fresh blueberry, fresh raspberry, raspberry syrup, black berry syrup, crushed peanut and the waffle cone. A perfect end to simple and flavorful meal. We will definitely return to try out the famous brick toast dessert, made with toasted brioche, served with ice cream, organic honey, and a number of options for toppings.
