An e-mail arrived yesterday asking for a recommendation for a good place to find good Thai food in Tucson. Without hesitation I suggested the monthly Thai feast at Wat Buddhametta, a Buddhist temple at 1133 S. Swan Road. It is truly some of the best homemade food I've ever had, and for $10 per person it's an absolute steal.
Wat Buddhametta is throwing another feast this Saturday, March 17. From Ajahn Sarayut, abbot of the center:
The very best Thai cooks are preparing a wonderful buffet of Thai food including pad thai, egg rolls, yellow potatoes chicken curry, red curry, vegetarian curry, dessert and more delights. Bring the whole family and your friends. The buffet starts at 5 p.m. and continues until about 7 p.m. We are asking for a small donation of $10.00 per person, children under 10 eat free. The collected funds from this event will help to support the temple to sustain the ability to offer all classes free of charge to the community.
There's more on Wat Buddhametta over here.
