After picking up a Radon monitor for my husband in Troutman, the kids and I were starving, but didn’t want to drive all the way into Mooresville proper for some lunch. We spied Chopstix as we were coming down Doolie Road, and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful discovery!!
We started with an appetizer called the Chopstix Combination. It had 2 Chicken Satay skewers, 2 fried dumplings and 3 spring rolls. The Chicken Satay was marinated and glazed with coconut cream and served with a sweetly savory peanut sauce that was like the tastiest and smoothest peanut butter I’ve ever eaten. The fried dumplings were full of spicy ground meat and were crispy on the outside. The spring rolls were also delicious.
My entree was the Pad Pik Paow with Shrimp. It was a stir fry of shrimp, veggies and flavored with basil leaves and chili paste. It was spicy and cooked well, but I would have liked a little more of the delicious sauce to drench my rice with. My kids both got the Kei Krob which is a battered and deep fried chicken cooked in a Thai sweet sauce mixed with sliced ginger and crushed peanuts. I was surprised at how delicious this was! It is possibly the most delicious sweet chicken dish I’ve ever had. It had such a balance between the sweet sauce and the savory elements of the dish. That is an easy dish to get wrong, with a sauce to cloyingly sweet. It is perfect here. The red curry with chicken is creamy and spicy and is loaded with crisp vegetables and tender chicken. It’s yummy even the next day!
This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Mooresville!
