My wife and I had a hankering for Thai food last night (Wednesday night). Just before we left the house, we remembered that our usual Thai place (Chopsticks up by Fox Valley Mall) is closed on Wednesdays. So my wife went online and found VIP Thai Cuisine in Woodridge and we gave it a try. We were quite pleased. This little restaurant is tucked away in the corner of a two-story strip mall kind of building. Very nice, modern decorations inside with a silent TV and unobtrusive Asian instrumental music playing in the background. Only a few tables in the place. I only looked at the menu long enough to find my shrimp pad Thai and a Thai iced tea. My wife ordered chicken pad see ew with the same drink. We were both pleased with our dishes, which came out in like 5 minutes, BTW. And we tried each other's food and agreed that although both were good, the shrimp pad Thai beat out the pad see ew. The pad Thai came with 7 shrimps, which is usually the most I ever see served in that dish, so they were generous with that protein. I saw that they offered custard on its own, and mango and sticky rice, but not sticky rice and custard. I asked our server if they could put together a sticky rice and custard for me. They did, and it was quite tasty-both served hot, and on separate dishes. We ordered a panang curry to go, and we warmed that up for lunch today. It was tasty, too. Just enough spice to make you notice, and very flavorful.
I'm very glad we found VIP Thai Cuisine. Even though it's 30 minutes away, we'll definitely be going back.
