I tried another new restaurant today for lunch with a group of people from a program I'm taking. We were planning to eat again at Chop Chop Korean, located on Nova Rd in South Daytona. However, when we arrived, we found that they are closed the first Wednesday of the month (which was today). So we decided to go right next door to try out Lan Lamoon Thai Bistro, which is located at 2900 S Nova.
I've passed by this restaurant many times since it's opened in 2019, but I've never noticed it before. It's in a little strip of businesses and I never saw it before. When we walked inside I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the little diner was. I wasn't expecting that from the outside. I really liked the diner inside. We found a nice table by the window and set up for a good lunch.
Being the only vegetarian (again), I found out what was vegetarian on the menu. There were numerous dishes that were already vegetarian, and others that they could easily make vegetarian upon request. It was hard for me to narrow down what I wanted to order, because I had so many options I wanted to try. I decided to go with my favorite Thai dish, which is pad se ew with tofu, which is a stir fry noodle dish. I was also going to order some spring rolls, but it turned out that you get one with the meal, which was great.
Everyone else in the group all ordered meat-based dishes, ranging from a shrimp salad to noodle dishes and appetizers. We were first brought a little bowl of vegetarian broth-based soup that had a few pieces of tofu in it. It was so good! I loved it. Then the meals were brought out and they looked great. The pad se ew had plenty of tofu, veggies, and a delicious sauce that was slightly sweet. I started with the spring roll, which had a delicious dipping sauce. The spring roll was really good! I loved all the food I had there. Everyone else reported that they liked the food as well.
Two thumbs up for Lan Lamoon Thai Bistro! This nice little diner has great food, a nice atmosphere, and friendly staff. I will certainly go back again. You can check out their website here.
