Dining in St Augustine
So you have spent a great day at the beach, visited the Oldest House and the Light station and wandered round the historical district of St Augustine and now it is time to eat, so where do you head?
Well if you are a lover of Asian food, we know just the place! The Asia Paradise Restaurant is just the place as it serves not just Chinese but Thai and Cambodian food at very reasonable prices. It is located next to Big Lots on the road leading to the US 1 South and is open all day and evening from 11 am until 9 pm. The hours are slightly different at the weekend and the hours change to 11.30 – 9.30 pm but don’t visit on a Sunday as they are closed!
The décor is nothing special but it is clean and the staff were very friendly and the service was super fast. The restaurant now has a liquor license and serves the normal wines and domestic beers plus some Asian beers such as Tiger and Singha. As well as the normal soda fountain drinks and some Asian specialties such as green tea and iced coffee and tea, Thai style which is what I choose.
They have a lunch menu which is served between 11 and 3 pm and there was an impressive choice of at least thee dozen dishes to suit all palates. All dishes were served with soup and rice and the average price was $6, there was no dish dearer than $6.95 and that was generally for seafood.
The dinner menu featured the usual suspects from this region and below is just a selection of some of the more common dishes
Cambodian Thai Chinese
Cambodian lemon grass soup Tom Ka Gung soup Won Ton soup
Lort Cha Thai salad Spare ribs
Thai red and green curries Singapore Noodles
The dishes on the menu can all be served a varying degree of spice depending on how hot you like your Asian food. We choose the Tom Ka Gung soup and it is served for 2-4 four people and it would do this easily as the two of us had three bowls each (all for $6.95)!
I then choose a seafood medley which was a little more expensive at $14.95 and came with Jasmine rice and my dinging partner had Singapore noodles which I had a taste of and both dishes were very nice indeed. The whole bill plus drinks came to just $38 which was great value for money especially compared to Thai food in the UK.
So if you are in the area and fancy decent Asian fare this is the place for you!
