Thai SELECT program an indication of quality, authenticity
Of the 30+ restaurants participating, some have been given the distinction as Thai SELECT. Initiated by the Royal Thai Government, the Thai SELECT program is an initiative that grants a seal of government approval to restaurants whose menu consists of at least 60% authentic Thai food. The objective of this program according to the Thai Select website is to “increase the recognition of quality Thai restaurants and processed Thai food products as well as to encourage Thai restauranteurs and food producers to raise their quality while maintaining authenticity.”
Oceanside’s Rim Talay given Thai SELECT membership
Thai SELECT is an honorable distinction, and Oceanside’s own Rim Talay Thai Cuisine recently received the distinction and will be taking part in Thai Restaurant Week. Rim Talay (“by the sea” in Thai) has been delighting Oceanside locals with authentic cuisine since 2010. You can view their full menu here.
Larb, one of Rim Talay’s specialties, is made with ground chicken and Thai herbs with a spicy lime dressing
