Penn’s Thai Cafe, which features authentic flavors from the northeast region of Thailand, opened recently in Troy. Owner and chef Wonpen Phelps lived in Thailand in her early years and has more than 30 years of cooking experience. She promises to serve only fresh Thai food in her 24-seat, small but friendly restaurant. Her popular signature dishes include cashew chicken, Thai fried rice and spicy noodles. A few special traditional dishes are served every Sunday, which is Penn’s "authentic Thai day." Catering and carryout are available upon request.
