Cheevitdee Thai Restaurant
363 Fore Street, Portland, ME
Honestly, my family needed a change of cuisine tonight. I had a dream of Chef Woo Can jumping over a number of Lobsters!
It was time for Thai food. Now, I know Thai food is very spicy and tonight proved it. I had the traditional Thai Cuisine. ground chicken stir fry with fresh basil and birds eye peppers. On a scale of 1-5, she mentioned 2 is ok, a little spicy. but first I had to try an appetizer. It's marinated skewers of tender pork, grilled to perfection and served with cucumber and a fish sae infused with garlic, basil and a touch of lime.
It was excellent. Tasty yet tender. Now to the ground chicken stir fry with basil. A 2 star hotness was very hot. The more I consumed, the more tears were running down my face, My eyes were watery. Although I had the Thai beer (Singha), I needed a coke. It was so hot I was a fire breathing Woo. Whew! That's a hot dish.
It was delicious. I just had to eat slow and drink lots of water!!! Amen.
But the food was authentic,the atmosphere was simple yest contemporary and very clean. The waitress was very courteous and accommodating.
On a scale of 1-5 and 5 being the best, I give Cheevitdee a +500. Excellent meal and chep too, great value and the portions are just right.
