The “Land Of Smiles” isn’t a dentist’s dream, but rather Thailand, home of some of the world’s most delicious foods, bursting with exotic flavors and irresistible aromas. So when Chopsticks Noodle Café, Aurora’s favorite Thai restaurant, opens its doors each day, it’s impossible not to smile and follow your palate’s urgings to go inside.
With a menu of light and healthy (though deeply flavorful) fare, Chopsticks presents fresh, exciting and authentic Thai cuisine. Revel in the exotic flavors of traditional stews like Tom Yum Goong, teeming with shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, or the superb meat and rice dish Nam Tok Moo, with grilled pork and lemon juice, green onions, chili, mint, fish sauce and toasted rice. There are spicy curries and hearty noodle dishes galore, as well as savory-and-sweet dishes like their Honey-Roasted Duck Over Fried Rice. They deliver ($3 charge with minimum order of $25) and are now open on Sundays from 12pm to 8pm.
