Thai Flavor Restaurant

Thai Flavor in Glen Allen
Submitted by Lisa Adams.

Vegetarian Pad Kee Mao

About a year ago, my friend Shelly introduced me to Thai Flavor. It's not a big restaurant but its dishes are big on flavor. After just one meal, I knew I would be back again and again. I became a vegetarian in January 2013 so quite a few of the restaurants I loved now had nothing to offer me. Not Thai Flavor. They can pretty much make any dish vegetarian by omitting the fish sauce and swapping out the meat for tofu. My friends, who eat meat, love the variety too. My favorite dish is the Vegetarian Pad Kee Mao; it's a no meat version of drunken noodles and with every bite it just gets better and better. I will get it to go and order an extra order of mixed veggies cooked in the sauce and it is plenty for 2 people to share. I also highly recommend the Spicy Chili Basil. Of course, you don't have to take my word for it. Check out the comments on Yelp and be sure to visit soon.

Are You Thinking of Selling Your Home?

The national inventory of homes has fallen to a four month supply, making it a sellers’ market in many areas of the United States. As a result of this low supply, homes are on the market for fewer days and bidding wars have broken out among buyers. If you’ve been thinking of putting your home on the market, now may be a good time.

This month’s newsletter includes relevant facts and statistics about the current housing market. While page one provides an overview of the market, including the factors that make this an ideal time to sell, page two paints a portrait of the average seller and includes information about the home they sold.

Our new web site offers an abundance of information to help sellers in this dynamic new market. Please visit us at  or call Mark Adams at 804-237-8585 to learn more.
