AmeriThai, the corner takeout that took over a long-vacant space, has opened at 1244 Snyder Ave. and we happened to stop by yesterday when two local monks came in with gifts to welcome the new business. The monks, from the temple at 20th and Washington, also came in with a money tree to raise funds for the national temple located in Washington, D.C.
But we digress. Let’s get to the food.
AmeriThai owner Yui Soun, who was previously working for an Ardmore Thai place, is offering a mix of traditional dishes like pad thai and basil fried rice as well as a handful of American standards, like turkey sandwiches. All dishes are incredibly affordable.
The hours that they told us — a rather quirky 12:35 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily, except closed Sunday — differ from what it says on the menu, which says 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday. You can always call them at 215-334-0400.
The place opened last weekend. Anyone out there have any early reviews?
