We’ve been seeing a new Thai food truck around called Luckyim Thai. A few days ago, we got a chance to try them out.READ MORE: 'Today, I Can Rejoice': New Yorkers Hit The Streets After Jury Finds Derek Chauvin Guilty In George Floyd's Death
The menu has pad thai and a few other noodle dishes, a daily special with chicken in your choice of three sauces and three types of rice, and basil chicken. We got the basil chicken over white rice, but they also have basil chicken fried rice. Both were $8.
Because we can never resist them, we also ordered dumplings, which come 5 for $4. They can be either steamed or fried, and we opted for steamed.READ MORE: Activists Celebrate Conviction Of Derek Chauvin In George Floyd's Death, But Say Fight Is Not Over: 'Tomorrow, We Still Have To Dismantle Systemic Oppression'
The dumplings were ground pork with chives in an eggy wrapper. Each order comes with a sweet vinegar sauce for dipping. The dumplings were good alone, but they were even better with the dipping sauce.
Basil chicken came with thinly-sliced white meat chicken in a spicy, light, brown sauce. In the sauce were basil leaves, which came through right away, lots of minced garlic, red and green bell peppers, onions and red pepper flakes. The sauce started out a little spicy, but by the end of the meal, the spiciness had increased quite a bit.
Lunch from Luckyim Thai was quite tasty. The dumplings were excellent, and we enjoyed the basil chicken. If you don’t like spicy food, we would recommend getting a different dish, but the quality of the food at Luckyim Thai is good.MORE NEWS: Police: Gabriel Dewitt Wilson In Custody After Deadly Shooting At West Hempstead Stop & Shop
