1001 Thai in Easton is one of those hidden gems, whose straightforward name takes its cues from its location at the intersection of 10th and Northampton Streets and the types of cuisines it serves.
Located in a brick Victorian home, the menu at 1001 Thai is extensive with options for both indoor and outdoor dining. The kitchen sources ingredients locally and seasonally when it can.... even does some small-scale gardening on the premises, growing lots of Thai basil and small lime trees, as the latter’s leaves figure prominently in many Thai dishes. The tofu is non-GMO, and no MSG is used in the kitchen. Browse the Lunch, Dinner, and Takeout Menus.
Must Try Dishes
- The dumplings—homemade and loaded with different meats—imagine pork, chicken, crab and shrimp all in one, served either steamed or fried.
- The Drunken Man Noodles are probably the most photographed/Yelped/otherwise-mentioned on social media.
- Pad Thai, a noodle-based dish, is a good place to start; pick your choice of protein or keep it all veggie.
- The Massaman curry, a traditional offering with coconut milk, carrot, onion, potato, pumpkin, pineapple and peanuts, is also a specialty.
- The fried rice offerings are slightly different from what one may associate with the dish—for starters, they’re not as oily as fried rice can sometimes be. (The pineapple fried rice is especially delicious—jasmine rice with curry powder, carrots, raisins, scallions, cashew nuts and, of course, pineapple.)
