Quality Ethnic Dishes: Thai-Karen Cookhouse
Here at the Thunder Bay Country Market, we love to celebrate the diversity of our vendors and their products. Many of our vendors come from different backgrounds and upbringings, which is what makes the market such a diverse and special place. Not only can you find comfort foods which are recognizable within the Canadian culture, but you’ll find an even wider range of international dishes, prepared right here in our community, for you to take home something a little different every time!
This week’s vendor (and our last but not least for the 2016 season!) serves up a host of delicious, homemade items. Thai-Karen Cookhouse is a small home-based business providing traditional, freshly-prepared Asian and Thai foods. From mini spring rolls to mini Thai sausages and fresh noodle bowls, the folks of Thai-Karen Cookhouse are willing to accommodate whatever needs you may have in the area of Asian and Thai cuisine!
Thai-Karen Cookhouse has been in business since 2012, by a family of trained chefs in the area of professional cooking. And their passion for their business shows! About 4 years ago, they joined us at the market and have very much enjoyed becoming part of the lineup of diverse vendors, where they have also been able to share their speciality foods with the greater community of Thunder Bay. “Our goal is to provide specialty foods at affordable rates. We want to give them even more than what it’s worth!” Choose from chicken samosa, salad rolls, or Thai-fried noodles along with spring rolls and noodle bowls. By using their own recipes, Thai-Karen Cookhouse guarantees their customers a variety of tasty and unique dishes, sure to satisfy even those who’ve not tried Asian food before!
Besides finding them and their products at the market every Saturday 8:00am to 1:00pm, you can pre-order your meals ahead of time (807-707-5123) for pickup and request exactly what you’d like. But be sure to stop by in person from time to time to pay them a visit. These friendly folks are located on the first floor, near the main entrance of the building, and are willing to accommodate you however possible!
