Story & Photo – Joseph Boyle
This afternoon my friend, Mike, and I took a road trip down to Historic Freighthouse Square located at 430 East 25th St, near the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington.
The Freighthouse Square is over 100 years old. It was well known for being the furthest west freight terminus for the Milwaukee Railroad. Immigrants used to flow through the Freighthouse as them came in by boat.
Today my friend introduced me to Tom. He is the fellow in the chef’s jacket in my photo. He is very personable and fun to meet.
Thursdays and Fridays are Chef Special days. Today was salmon. Tom served up a hardy tasty full plate luncheon meal. The special cost about $12.95, but it was special.
There are many other options on the menu starting at a little over $3.00.
The Thai Fish & Chips Company has been in business for over 25 years. They are open Monday – Saturday 10:00 to 7:00 and on Sunday, 12:00 to 5:00.
You can call ahead or arrange for take out by calling 253-627-8432 or contact them at their e-mail address of firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next time I plan to try Caesar Salad at $5.50 and a bowl of clam chowder for $4.00.
If you try it out, let Tom know that Joe, from The Suburban Times, sent you.
What a wonderful alternative to your normal fish and chips. I bet it tastes way better too!
You can spend a lot more for a good meal, but you can’t get a better one then at Paya Thai! The service is great and the food is always fresh. These people make a meal a real treat!
