Dallas has no other restaurant quite like Too Thai Street Eats. Although we have more than a few good Thai restaurants, none of them shares much in common with Too Thai, a Carrollton establishment that focuses on the foods of Bangkok’s street vendors, night markets and hawker stalls. There’s simply nobody else in the region serving this food, except for a few market vendors who congregate behind the Buddhist Center of Dallas at lunchtime Sunday. Too Thai sells pad Thai and fried rice, but its menu veers into new and delightful directions. Take hoi todt, pronounced like an American’s greeting: “Hi, Todd.” This is an omelet on top of a modest pile of bean sprouts and garnished with cilantro, but it’s also a genre-buster. For one thing, the omelet is studded with about a dozen mussels. For another, the egg is only half the story; there’s also a tapioca flour mixture which, when fried in a lot of oil, gives the batter a remarkable crispy-crunchy texture filled with bubbles and air pockets. It’s like a big, bubbly crepe-chip.
