Atchana's Homegrown Thai is open for dinner

Atchana's Homegrown Thai is open this week for dinner. It's a soft opening week. Lunch will start being served also, next weekend.

They are located at 3194 Commodore Plaza, a long time coming.

The location is perfect, the restaurant is beautiful. There is plenty of seating inside and out.

You all may remember Siam Lotus, the restaurant in the green building, that was on US 1 in South Miami for so many years. Well they brought all that flavor and feel and authentication to the new Atchana's. 

This door at the new location is the actual carved front door from Siam Lotus. It was carved in Thailand and they saved it from the old restaurant all these years.

The restaurant has a lot of personal touches. Steve Capellini, co-owner, told me that he will be making his own Sriracha hot sauce from his own grown peppers. He plans on growing the peppers himself, along with herbs and lemon grass right in the restaurant and also out front. 

Most of the restaurant features reclaimed wood, from Coconut Grove docks. Most of the material in the place is recycled. They have a perfect location at the corner of Commodore and Grand and I know from past experience that their food is perfect. 

I got a sneak peek at the menu and there are house favorites like Lobster Pad Thai, Whole Snapper, Crispy Duck, Rib Eye Thai Style and Fresh Spring Rolls, Tom Yum Goong and Tom Kha Kai soups with Wonton and Tofu Soup, too.

Curries include Beef Massaman Curry, Green Curry Pork, Panang Chicken Curry and Chicken Yellow Curry. Noodles and rice include Pad Thai, Kuay Teaw Pad, Pineapple and Shrimp Fried Rice, Pad Woonsen and so much more.

I love the Thai Doughnut Holes for dessert along with Thai's Cream Sandwich, Tropical Fruit Sorbet and Mango and Sticky Rice.

They have lots of greens and lots of starters like Bangkok Wings and Satay and Thai Beefy Jerky.
