'Fast-Casual' Thai Dee Daa Now Open In Midtown
Dee Daa, a "fast-casual" Thai restaurant concept, has debuted in Midtown. The menu includes noodles, infused rice dishes, stir-fries, and curries, which come à la carte or in "bundles" with a recommended side.
With a look that's a little bit Pinkberry and a message that's a little bit Wendy's, the restaurant suggests you try such combos as Drunken Noodles with Vegetable Spring Rolls or Coconut Milk Soup; Karee Curry Infused Rice with Four Flavor Bites or Mango Salad; or Pineapple and Tomato Stir Fry with Shrimp Pockets or Tamarind Soup. There are also snacks, including dried fruit chips and chocolate-covered fruit, and you can wash it all down with one of the "authentic Thai teas" from the tea station. Taking a page from healthy chains like Otarian, the food at Dee Daa is served in biodegradable containers. Composting op!
