Summer Summer – Thai Eatery in Emeryville, Ca

Summer Summer in Emeryville, Ca is both friendly and elegant.   Parking is easy to find and even in the evening, we didn’t have much of a wait. The ambiance is mellow and pleasant.

People really love the Happy Hour from 5-7. But we came after and were seated without a reservation very quickly.

The food was good, but it lacked presentation. I think the menu was nice, plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.

Prices: $$-$$$

Rating: 3 hearts

Dog Friendly:  No outdoor seating.

Favorite Dish: Green Tea Crème Brulee

What We Ordered

Drinks:

I loved that they offer a Thai Iced tea along with a very good Iced Green Tea. Both were very pleasant and fresh.

Appetizers:

Corn Fritters were very good. Lightly fried and not too thick, they were a nice way to start the meal.

Garlic String beans – These were good. However the presentation was a little flat.  I love the crisp beans and nice zesty garlic flavor though.

Dinner:

Pad See-U with Tofu –Flat rice noodles prepared with egg,  steamed broccoli with their own “Thai see-u “sauce. This was nice with a mild portion size and tofu  pretty done well. I did have to ask to have this heated up because the tofu was very cold.

Seafood Sukiyaki – Plenty of seafood and a very flavorful sauce.

Num Ya Ta Lay– Crab meat & white fish in red curry with rice vermicelli.  Crab meat and white fish in a curry paste served with vermicelli, hard boil egg, fresh and pickled vegetables. This one was alright.  I thought the curry flavor was a bit strange with the pickles. But it was pretty good.

Dessert:

Green Tea Crème Brulee – This was the highlight of the meal.  The Crème Brulee had a lovely green tea flavor but it wasn’t sweet.  The caramelized sugar on top was great. We especially loved the Golden Berries on the side.

Peanut butter bomb – If you like peanut butter ice cream and chocolate.  This is the Bomb!  My husband really enjoyed it.
