Songkran, also known as the Thai New Year, is just around the corner. To mark the holiday, a number of Thai-owned restaurants in Dallas and Fort Worth will celebrate by kicking off the metroplex’s inaugural Thai Restaurant Week.

Starting next week, 18 Thai restaurants across DFW will each offer a limited time only special, one that isn’t frequently seen on Thai menus in Texas, in celebration of the festivities. Among the participating restaurants are Addison’s Bangkok at Belt Line, East Dallas’ Bangkok City, Chili Thai in Plano, and Haute Sweets Patisserie in Lake Highlands.

Among the specials on offer, Haute Sweets will craft a Thai tea flavored macaron, Best Thai Signature will craft authentic Thai street foods, and Bangkok City will introduce a tamarind-free version of pad thai that was popular in the 1930s.

Thai Restaurant Week kicks off on Wednesday, April 13, and lasts until April 20. For more details, menus, and participating restaurants, check out DFW Thai Restaurant Week’s website.
