On a whim, I ended up at one of the bets Thai food places in Lexington the other day and the moment I took a bite I knew I needed to post about it! Nat's is a truly flavorful and authentic Thai food restaurant that will make you want to head back for more. From its interesting placement connected to an Irish pub to it's no frills attitude, Nat's will give you a Thai food experience thats hard to compare to anywhere else in Lexington!
Not many places in Lex can offer you cold beer from an Irish pub while you await your authentic ( & bold) Thai food. Jack and I sat in the back of McCarthy's while we anxiously waited for our lunch to arrive. Every minute was worth the wait though once we dug in. From not being that hungry, to finishing my whole plate (what's new) I was more than happy with my pick from the menu! I chose the Shrimp dish and Jack had the Spicy Kobe, both matching in some serious spice without losing bold flavor.
I left with a seriously full tummy, but was so happy. The guy who cooked our food also served it to us and told us how the restaurant is family-run and Nat is dedicated to his bold flavors and spicy food. I loved getting to heard a little back story on the restaurant as I tried to calmly sip water post spicy meal.
The authenticity gave me some "staycation" vibes so this Madewell shirt was spot-on and so were my draw-string chambray shorts for their adjustability (BOTH on sale). Of course I can't forget to mention my new Draper James sunnies that I attempted to use to help hide my post meal "why did I eat this much food" face. I can't complain though because we were so happy with everything about Nat's and I absolutely recommend trying out this local Thai food hole in the wall!
