Admittedly, yes, I’m food obsessed, but that doesn’t stop me from being misinformed about my restaurants from time to time. I recently led you to believe that Sukho Thai in Belden Village is the only Thai restaurant in Canton. Come to find out, this is only partially true. Indeed Sukho Thai is the only exclusively Thai restaurant, as in, they focus on Thai cuisine, the word “Thai” is on the sign….you get the idea. But recently we became acquainted with a pan-Asian gem called Jasmine Asian Bistro and discovered another great local place for Thai. Pan-Asian is a fancy way of saying that they serve a mix of Asian cuisines, including Japanese, Chinese, and yes, Thai. A big thank-you to one of my readers, Lee, for pointing this out.
Now, about my new friend, Jasmine Asian Bistro. I had been hearing bits and pieces about this place for a while, but since it’s located on 30th Street, between Cleveland Ave. and Market, I don’t pass by it enough to remember to go. Once inside, I was pleasantly surprised that there was some attention paid to design details in the dining room. With white table clothes and napkins and an updated and almost swanky bar, this place definitely had a little ambiance going; at least they’re trying, that’s all a girl can ask for.
