I keep meaning to do a quick run-down of places we've tried recently, but my husband and I still don't get out to eat as often as we used to and I keep forgetting. :) Tsao's Cuisine
3989 B Colonel Glenn Hwy
-- I'm under the impression this place has changed hands recently (?) and some of the dishes weren't quite as good as I've had before. Still very good: the stewed brisket on a bed of bok choy, steamed flounder, mala green beans. Anything off the specials whiteboard is worth a go, really. Prices are more reasonable than China Cottage, and they do a much better job on the steamed flounder, too. This has become the go-to Chinese place for family dinners. House of Kebab
298 N Main St in Centerville
--I went here months ago, but loved it-- it's where Roc-a-Fellas used to be. The green bean appetizer was great, and I'm not even a big fan of green beans. I enjoyed my lamb kofta. Both my husband and I were saddened when Taste of the Mediterranean
near Dayton Mall closed, so we were happy to find a new Lebanese place. Tik's Thai Grille
4459 State Route 725 in Bellbrook
-- I was pretty damn skeptical when my parents told me about a Thai restaurant in Bellbrook, but this place was great, with some of the best Thai curries I've had in the Dayton/Cincinnati area so far. Our favorites were the Massaman and the red curry, with duck. The Drunken Man Noodles were also delicious. Be warned that spicy means spicy here, though. We ordered a 3 on most dishes, I think. The papaya salad was good, but so hot that I'm getting pain flashbacks just remembering it. Not cheap, but Thai food never is, IME. Very friendly, warm service. I like it better than Siam Pad Thai in Kettering, and the bonus is that you're not crammed into your table like sardines.
I was happy to see that Mom's Restaurant
(formerly in Red Lion) moved to its new place in Franklin just off I-75. Has anyone been to it yet?
