Real estate agents have to know good local restaurants. So here’s my first food tip for the Cookeville TN area: House of Thai next to TN Tech University.

Thai food is one of my favorites. I’ve sampled it across the US and can honestly say that House of Thai compares well with food from Tommy Tang’s and great SoCal mom & pop places. Fresh ingredients and a consistent yet creative chef make it a great place to meet old friends or take new ones.

Most of my friends are meat-eaters who have trouble picking just one item from their menu. As a vegetarian, I actually have lots of choices here. I usually enjoy the delectable Thai curry with tofu, but have never been disappointed with any choice. The service doesn’t disappoint either.

Meals are cooked to order, so don’t plan to rush in and out in 30 minutes.  Allow about an hour to savor real Thai cuisine served in a true Southern manner.
