Although Seng Soukhaserm was surrounded by food growing up—his family owns a restaurant in his hometown in Thailand—he didn’t learn to cook until years later. A career in engineering was in his future and he arrived in Hamilton 15 years ago to study. But while working part-time at a Thai restaurant during school, he realized that cooking was his true passion.
After learning from his mentor in Hamilton, Soukhaserm moved to Kitchener to open his own Thai restaurant, which he later sold and began working at another restaurant in Midland. It was while driving through Huntsville last summer that he saw the empty building for lease that was formerly Bo’s Thai. He decided to take a chance, make the move to Huntsville and open up his own Thai restaurant—Seng’s Thai Cuisine—in its place in August 2018.
Although Phengphan loves to cook, she tends to work the front of house serving while Soukhaserm loves to be immersed in the action in the back. I My Thai’s menu is inspired by northern Thailand cuisine, which Soukhaserm says is quite different from the food in southern Thailand, and is healthy and made fresh to
The menu includes gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options, in addition to meat dishes.
Before the summer rush hits this year, Soukhaserm plans to expand their menu to include more appetizers and salads.
Not only does I My Thai have both dine in and takeout options, but last month they began offering free delivery within Huntsville (within 10 minutes of the restaurant) every day except Sunday.
