Fairwood Featured Business: Fairwood Thai Cuisine

Fairwood Thai Cuisine 14252 SE 176th St, Renton, WA 98058Hi friends,

I am excited to continue the “Fairwood Featured Business” series on my blog.

I’m committed to sharing what I LOVE about the Fairwood area. I believe that a big part of what enhances our quality of life is when we enjoy our surroundings. So I’m taking an opportunity to focus on our neighborhood surroundings and to appreciate all that we have here, so close to home.

Last month, I introduced you to Plaza Cleaners and Alterations.

For November I would like to highlight one of my favorite restaurants: Fairwood Thai Cuisine.

Fairwood Thai Cuisine has been a strong feature in the neighborhood for almost 13 years. Dan, the owner, runs a family-friendly business. His menu has been developed over the years through collaboration and testing, and he consistently receives great reviews.

I personally appreciate Dan because, after meeting him years ago, he has remembered my name and makes a point to welcome my husband and me each time we eat there.

I love Phad Thai. Once when I ordered it, Dan suggested that I try the Kee Mao noodles instead. “If you like Phad Thai, you will LOVE the Kee Mao.” He was right! If you’re a Phad Thai fan like I am, you will love the Kee Mao noodles too!

Dan has graciously offered a free appetizer to anyone who comes in and mentions my name! Yay!

Fairwood Thai Cuisine has a lovely dining room and is open for lunch and dinner every day. They also offer DELIVERY after 4pm every day.

Fairwood Thai Cuisine is in in the Fairwood Shopping Center at Fairwood Shopping Center, 14252 SE 176th St, Renton, WA 98058.

Fairwood Featured Business: Plaza Cleaners and Alterations

Plaza Cleaners and AlterationsI frequently talk about my favorite neighborhood of Fairwood. I work here; I live here; I raise my kids here… It’s the people, and the neighborhoods, and the schools, and the easy proximity to everything we like to do, right? It’s also the local businesses that we know and love!

I thought I would take the coming year to appreciate OUT LOUD some of my favorite spots – those local businesses that really make a difference for my family. I will be posting a new business here every month, as a way of sharing the love about the places that provide great service and help make Fairwood the best place to live!

First, I would like to present Plaza Cleaners and Alterations.

Mike and I have used them for years because of the way they make us feel each and every time. The owner, Kay, calls us by name whenever she sees us come in! I am so impressed by what I have learned about their business that I want to share a little here:

The owners, Kay and Young Sim, have been in the business in Renton since 1984. They use “green drycleaning” practices, and have a 5-Star EnviroStar Certification (out of a possible 5 stars). Knowing that they run an environmentally conscious business makes such a big difference for me!

I encourage you to check out their website, and check out the BUSINESS! Please give them a try! Tell them that Rosie Rourke sent you and they will take off 10% just for using my name! (I love them!)
