Thai'd Up in Mammoth Lakes?

Location: Thai'd Up 587 Old Mammoth Road Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546 
(760) 934-7355

I LOVE the food here. The only bad part is waiting to get a seat because it is so popular! I had a fantastic curry dish, coconut soup and my husband loved his pad thai dish. We had to wait about 10 minutes to get a table but that wasn't their fault. We enjoyed a couple beers in the waiting chairs and another couple showed up and had to stand nearby until our seats became free for them. Just before we were seated another couple showed up and it was a squeeze then. 

Thai'd Up has Thai trained chefs and fly the chefs to Thailand yearly for cooking classes and to expand and sharpen their repertoire. There are framed news stories and chef certifications in Thai cuisine proudly displayed. I only noticed because I had to kill time waiting for a table. 

The atmosphere was one of crowded enjoyment. The people working the host/hostess area are friendly young people in t-shirts, which unfortunately does not add to the Thai feel but is an expression of local Mammoth culture in a Thai restaurant. They were friendly and felt for our plight of having to wait for a table. What more can you ask for than that? I was just happy to have a chair when all is said and done.

I was impressed with their dedication to the authenticity of the Thai food culture. The prices are reasonable $10-$20 range. I really love Thai food, Thai people and Thailand... and wish Thai'd Up much success. Though clearly they don't need my wishes as the waiting line showed.

Mammoth Mountain Coffee - Old NY Deli & Bagel Shop

We arrived in Mammoth to do mountain biking and stayed at Davison Hostel. It was around $53 for two people and there were three beds in the room! The atmosphere was woodsy and relaxed. There is a kitchen for cooking though we didn't use it. Upstairs is the kitchen and the living room with a TV and a gorgeous mountain view. The upper floor has a triangle shaped ceiling, which is really charming. The next morning we headed over at 9am to the Pita Pit in the Village center for breakfast. The door was open, but no one was inside. We looked around and a guy came out from the back and told us they were closed. We thought that was odd. He said they would not be open till 11am. He recommended the deli down the street. 

The Old New York Deli & Bagel shop a few stores over on Minaret Road in Mammoth Village turned out to be fantastic. We loved it!

Old New York Deli & Bagel Company, 6201 Minaret Rd., in The Village at Mammoth, California, USA - Phone760-934-3354

I had the hummus, cucumber, tomato, and sprouts with one added egg added on a toasted onion bagel. It was delicious and included a cup of Peets brand coffee. The coffee was made using a dual reservoir Bunn commercial coffee machine.

It was fresh and delicious! Greg had the corned beef hash on a garlic bagel. He spilled his coffee and they graciously cleaned up and gave him a new cup of Joe. I highly recommend this place. My bagel breakfast was $4.99 including coffee and Greg's was $5.99 including the coffee as well. A great deal for the Village. They offer a traditional breakfast of two eggs, one side such as home fries and toast for $3.99! There are more choices then I could list, but those are the ones that stood out for me.

They have free wi-fi for computer use! Click here for coupons for the Old New York Deli.
