Authentic Thai Flavors in Houston at Their Very Own Asia Market

By Elisha Neubauer

If you've lived in the Houston area at any time after the '80s, you're well aware of the Asia Market Thai Restaurant. Having started in a smaller location, this popular, tried and tested eatery is home to some of the best Asian food options in town. Although many have tried to replicate the cuisine offered at the Asia Market Thai Restaurant, it remains one of a kind.

The original location of the Asia Market Thai Restaurant was located on Cavalcade for almost thirty years. The shop sold Asian groceries, with a small, ten table café available for diners. Over the years, they gathered quite a following of dedicated patrons and, as they outgrew both their seating and parking, decided it was time to move on...to a larger facility.

Now that they've settled in nicely on Fulton Street, the Asian inspired eatery is able to offer a larger selection of unique Thai food and a bigger dining area, allowing a greater number of guests to join them at one time. "We have now moved on and are maintaining the food quality and the love of cooking Thai by Thai cooks," explains Lawrence and Noi Allen, owners of Asia Market Thai Restaurant. "We love at what we do and we appreciate all the supports we get from customers."

When it comes to the ingredients, the Allens are exceptionally picky with what they use; ensuring you, as the patron, receive only the freshest, locally available ingredients available. "We are using as much Thai ingredients that are available locally and cook as we are in Thailand," they say. "We are Thai, we know what is good!"

Of course, there's more to Asia Market Thai Restaurant than just good food- although, that's a major perk! "With many more seatings to accommodate large parties, we are also providing free wifi and open to serve food all day from 11 am to 9 pm," The Allens tell us. In addition to a larger indoor seating, the eatery has partnered with several popular delivery services; UberEATS, Grubhub, and Doordash, so they can provide food delivery directly to your door, with no fuss.

Local, fresh ingredients, authentic Thai recipes and methods, free WiFi, and all day accessibility are some of the many reasons to give the Asia Market Thai Restaurant a try. But, we asked the Allens to give us their personal reason why we should give it a shot. "Thai food is unique and tasty," they stated. "It's the balance of savory, sweet, spice, and sour."
