Pom’s Thai Restaurant…delicious and gluten-free friendly!

Last night my husband and I ate dinner at Pom’s Thai Restaurant in South Portland, Maine. We had to be in Portland for a very special reason – my son was flying home for Spring break and we were picking him up at the airport! We love to see our son and are very excited to have him home for a week. He also enjoys coming home….getting some rest, eating and cooking some good food and this time, meeting our new puppy!

But, I digress, this post is about dining out at a gluten-free friendly restaurant. (A picture of the new puppy comes later in this post!!) Pom’s Thai Restaurant is located in a strip mall on Western Avenue, one street over from the Maine Mall in South Portland, Maine. The decor inside is very nice – simple, yet elegant and clean. We were very pleased when we opened the menu to find that any dish without gluten/wheat was labeled “no wheat” written under the circle and line symbol —> Ø.

Their menu is very extensive and my husband didn’t have to ask the server about each dish he was interested in, which was very helpful! We really love Thai food and this meal was outstanding. Whenever we go to a Thai restaurant, we generally compare it to our favorite place in Auburn, Maine. Last night, Pom’s Thai Restaurant became our new “Gold Standard” for comparison!!

We got the fresh vegetarian spring rolls, Pad Thai with shrimp, and massaman curry with chicken – so yummy! They have two more restaurants in the Portland area, so we may have to try them all!

We truly are “foodies” in this family, my son included. He whipped up a gourmet omelet for himself for breakfast, then went to the grocery store to stock up on goodies for his week home. He plans on cooking us a gourmet vegetarian dinner some night this week – if I can get a picture of it before it gets devoured, I’ll write about it!

Here’s a peak at our new pup – her name is “Miya”. We lost our older canine boy, “Dunkin”, at the beginning of January, so Miya was our answer to the empty nest syndrome!! She’s a cutie!

      Thank you, Nanette! We will definitely enjoy this week with Nick. You should try this restaurant, if you like Thai, the next time you’re in Portland.
