Trio Thai – a pan-asian BYOB

Last night, Charles and I took that advice of some of my twitter friends and hit up a new (to us) Thai restaurant in the Fairmount area of Philadelphia – Trio!



It was pouring down rain last night and Trio was pretty easy to park at, which is important to us when dining out in Philadelphia, but I was very excited to try a new restaurant. I love me some Thai food so I was excited when Trio came so highly recommended. Plus its a BYO which is always fun!



It has been a crazy week for both Charles and I – normally on a Friday night of a crazy week we will stay in and chill out but it was really nice last night to go out! Sometimes enjoying a night out with a bottle of wine is just what the doctor ordered to relax and unwind!


For dinner I got what I always get when I go out for Thai food – Pad Thai! I enjoyed this dish with shrimp, which was delicious! When asked, on a scale of 1-5, how hot I would like this dish, I went with a 3 – this dish seriously brought the heat! Luckily, I enjoy the spice, but it was very h-o-t!


Charles ordered the Green Curry but was brought this dish instead. Neither of us notched he was brought the wrong dish until he was halfway through eating it (even though there is a pretty big difference between what he ordered and what he got) when our waiter came over and told us that Charles was eating Drunken Noodles with Chicken, not Green Curry. The waiter offered to bring Charles the curry dish he originally ordered, but Charles enjoyed the noodles so much he didn’t need to switch – pretty nice that he got to try something he wouldn’t normally order and learned he really enjoyed it!


My plate was so massive I only ate about half of it – took the rest home for leftovers! Yum! The waiter was also really sweet and took Charles’ meal off the check since he didn’t get what he actually ordered so it was a really cheap night out! I love good customer service like that, it was completely unnecessary and unexpected, since Charles really did enjoy the dish he was served, but it was a nice surprise.


We will definitely be back to Trio! The food was really tasty, the service was awesome and you get to bring your own wine! What’s not to love about that?


Have you ever received the wrong order when dining out but been pleasantly surprised?


And the winner of my Dinner @ 6 Giveaway is Lauren Westgate who’s favorite 6 ingredient (or less) recipe is avocado salsa! Yum! Lauren – email me your information and we will get your $100 AMEX gift card out to you!

    That place looks beautiful! I’m glad you had a good night out!

    I have been brought the wrong dish before but they have never removed the entree from the bill. That is awesome that they did that. They’ll have repeat customers for sure now. 🙂

    I love that picture of you! Very pretty!

    I love that the restaurant was BYOW! And I love Shrimp Pad Thai! Also a winner in my book. Happy weekend!

    Great find for you and Charles! I expect a waiter to take the order off of my bill when I am brought the wrong thing and they usually do without asking.
    You look beautiful!
