First look: Real Thai opens in Wheat Ridge

Years ago, in a small strip mall just off I-70 and Kipling, there resided a tiny Thai restaurant -- the name escapes me -- but I definitely remember the food, a jumble of exquisitely spicy curries, slippery noodles stir-fried with vegetables and strong-smelling bowls of steaming soups. That restaurant is long, long gone, but now, in that same small mall, where "For lease" signs far outweigh tenants, another Thai joint -- Real Thai -- has taken up residence at 4980 Kipling.
