Outta the way, elephants and horses, Mom's in the kitchen now.
My Mom's Thai Kitchen, the new casual Thai eatery in Downtown Phoenix, moved into the space formerly occupied by Five R Cha Thai (R Cha means horse) and, prior to that, Thai Elephant, last month.
The family-owned restaurant, whose inspiration for its name needs no explanation, features a sizable menu of mostly Thai dishes (think curries, soups, and noodle and rice entrees) as well as a separate listing of lunch specials served Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
My Mom's Thai Kitchen also hosts a happy hour from 4 p.m. until close every day with specials on beer, wine, and appetizers.
