“At high tide fish eat ants; at low tide ants eat fish”

EDIT: Bangkok Bistro has closed their Schenectady location but can still be found in Colonie.

Bangkok Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants & I’m so happy that I have one here in Schenectady with me to eat at whenever I want but in case you haven’t heard, there’s a new location in Colonie (luckily, right around the corner from my boyfriend’s house)! On July 4th of this year, their new location opened on 1619 Central Ave by Krause’s Candy. I went there recently to check out the new location and I decided to try one of the meals I’ve been eyeballing for quite sometime. This restaurant is smaller than the Schenectady location but it’s got a good feel to it. I pulled up to it and there were fire torches outside – hard to miss!

My favorite thing to order is their Steamed Pot Stickers. I can’t help but order it each time I go, I love the curry sauce with peas and the chicken/veggie mix inside is really tasty. This time I decided to order something new. I always saw the jalapeno poppers on the menu and I’m lactose intolerant so I never ordered them because of the cream cheese. Prepared with my lactaid, I decided to do for it and to my surprise they weren’t the poppers I was used to but in the form of a roll – with salmon! I could taste the salmon and it made the flavor of this roll so much better than regular poppers that tend to be bogged down with cream cheese. Covered in panko, the crunchy bread crumbs kept the poppers from being too spicy while giving the roll more texture than the oil soaked fried skin that I’m used to.

I love this restaurant & I seem to always find something new I want to try so don’t be surprised if it shows up here often. Haven’t been? Give it a try! Don’t forget to check out their long list of martini flavors!
