If you’re a lover of Asian food – or of good food, in general – and you’re based in Dallas, Texas, I’m absolutely certain you’re constantly on the look-out for a great place where you can enjoy a hot plate of Pad Thai. It’s difficult to find Thai food that retains its original recipe and authentic taste in the United States, and a lot of people are of the opinion that it’s not even worth trying Thai food anywhere other than Thailand.
Those people are wrong.
I’m here to tell you that you are free to enjoy Thai delicacies anywhere in the world, and if you’re looking for the best Pad Thai in Dallas TX, you’ve come to the right place.
A special dish for a special occasion

We are the living proof that they can, and your taste buds will certainly agree. If you still need to be convinced, maybe you should just give it a try and see taste for yourself.
One of the best things about Asian Mint is that their Pad Thai sauce is not made with regular ol’ ketchup. It’s created in-house, with palm sugar, tamarind, and a lot of other yummy ingredients. They have it bottled up and for sale, and you can even learn how to make it yourself. Check out their YouTube channel, #cookingwithnikky for lessons on how to make Asian Mint’s Pad Thai at home. Nikky Phinyawatana, who moved here from Thailand two decades ago, has all the good tips and tricks on Asian food, and she’s excited to share them. That’s the great thing, that their Pad Thai is fused Bangkok style.
Make the right choice
With foreign cuisine, it’s always tricky because you can never know if what you are eating is authentic, or if it’s some random thing someone whipped up and called it “Thai,” when in reality, it’s just noodles with some soy sauce. That’s not cool, so when you’re looking for the best Pad Thai in Dallas TX, you’d better make a choice for a place that is actually Asian and can offer you the culinary experience of a lifetime.
Choose wrong? You end up on a disaster date.
Choose right? Incredible flavors will be dancing in your mouth, delighting your taste buds and leaving them wanting more and more.
When it comes to Asian food, if you want to experience The Real Thing, you have to be careful what restaurants you pick. You won’t find the best Pad Thai in Dallas TX at “Ricky’s Asian food & stuff”, but you might just find it at a place like Asian Mint. Be smart and enjoy Thai food the way it was intended.
The perfect take out dish
Let’s be real for a moment, here – how many of us can be arsed to get up from the couch, put on real clothes (you know, like pants), go out and walk all the way over to the restaurant, in order to get dinner? Especially when you also have to make plans with other people. That’s exactly why God invented take out, is it not? There is nothing easier or more convenient than just reaching over to the phone, still on your couch, and still in our pajamas, and placing an order on the doordash app exactly what you would like to eat.
And the magic doesn’t stop there! An hour later, the food is magically delivered to your doorstep, and all you have to do is get up and go tip the kid who brought it to you. And it’s even still warm! The only predicament in this scenario is what you are going to order. Nowadays, take out is available from pretty much any restaurant you can imagine, and any cuisine your little heart desires. But sometimes, you’re just longing for the best Pad Thai in Dallas TX. What can I say? The heart wants what the heart wants.
I usually give it exactly what it asks for, and it always asks for the delicious goodness that is Pad Thai. The phrase “Finger lickin’ good” should have never been coined for chicken when we have Thai food! Asian Mint is an excellent choice for takeout, as their menu is diverse, their food is tasty and authentic, and their delivery is speedy. If you have a hankering for some authentic Bangkok style Pad Thai with delicious sauce, you know who to call. Don’t go for that fake, ketchup-y stuff; you know that’s not good, man.
Enjoy it alone, enjoy it with friends
You know what’s great about Thai? Unlike fancy food that you feel stupid eating alone (Snails, anyone? And who has ever eaten shrimp by themselves?), this is primarily soul food, and who doesn’t like that?! If you just want to chill on the couch with the cat and make a mess of yourself, that’s cool. And if you want to have some friends over for a night of boozing, you’d better chase that alcohol with some greasy food!
Better yet, what do you do when you have a special someone over, and you want to impress them with your superior cooking skills? You order the best Pad Thai in Dallas TX and pretend you made it, of course! Look, I’m not saying that I won over significant others this way (I totally did), I’m just saying that it works, and anyone will be sufficiently impressed by how delicious the meal you created is. Just make sure you hide the takeout boxes first, okay? Or, watch the youtube channel #cookingwithnikky and buy their sauce!
