Siam Express is the most legitimate Thai spot in the game. If you’re ever in Fayetteville around lunchtime, man, there is no better place to grab a bite to eat. It’s located in a rink-a-dink plaza with that West Coast vibe and it begs a next door neighbor that sells you Mexican Cokes and Goya pop.
When you walk in, you’re greeted (if you can call it that) by the plainest looking Asian lady in the world. She is always rocking some kind of weird floral print shirt with the yoga pants before the aesthetically pleasing yoga pants and bottoms it off with the bootleg Asian Sketchers that you can grab at the grocery market. She also wastes no time with getting your order and the food is out fast and piping hot.
I’ve been going to Siam Express religiously and seriously no other place can compare. Asian Express comes close and Sawadees in Spring Lake is straight too, but Siam Express is the Notorious B.I.G. of Thai spots in the Southeast. Why? Because they use Fish Sauce like it is going out of style and that isn’t some people’s cup of tea, but I’m telling you, Fish Sauce is the realness homie. I’m not even on seafood like that and Fish Sauce is ill kid. Why else? Cause their Thai Hot should seriously be illegal or at least come with some kind of waiver. If you feel like testing your fortitude, man, their Thai Hot is real. It’s more than just extra Sriracha sauce.
It was so good that I forgot to take pics! So yeah, Siam Express is killing the game! I always rock with the Pork Fried Rice like a Gweilo though, but their whole menu is dope!
