Thai House II Restaurant and O-Shin Japanese Sushi

2250 NE 163rd St. Sunny Isles Beach, FL 33160 | North Dade | 305-940-6075

Location Description:

More than 2,500 miles of land and sea - plus a cultural gulf that's just as wide - separate Thailand and Japan, so diners have to wonder why the two nations' cuisines share menu space at Thai House II. An appetizer of "crispy noodles" - slightly crunchy strands loaded with shrimp and scallions and stuck together with honey - was a pleasantly sweet starter. But the "spicy chicken" entrée, featuring deep-fried chicken coated in a crimson chili-garlic sauce, was less memorable. The sushi succeeds more often. Crab, cucumber, lettuce, and mayonnaise crunched well together in a sizable handmade kewpie roll, and a kim chee roll with fresh conch, spinach, scallions, cucumber, and masago was tasty. Best of all, though, was a Thai desert called banana delight: crunchy dough pockets wrapped around nuggets of nearly molten banana and brushed with mildly sweet honey. Bananas and honey? Now there's a two-fer that works every time.
