5-Course Elevated Thai Tasting Event
As soon as it opened in 2012, this modern Thai eatery in West Lake Hills landed on Bon Appetit’s “50 Best New Restaurants in America” List. A decade later, it is still reaping accolades, winning places on such Lists as Time Out’s “Best Thai in ATX” and Austin Chronicle’s ”10 Best Restaurants of 2022.” (Not to mention Eater’s “17 Austin Restaurants With Great Views,” citing its vistas of West Lake and Downtown.) Executive Chef Randy Magallanez is turning out one of the most inventive Thai menus you’re likely to encounter. How about pad kweito with wild rice noodles? Jungle curry with Texas wagyu beef, red chili, baby corn, eggplant, and coconut cream? Blue crab fried rice with egg, lemongrass, ginger, peas, scallion, cilantro, and Thai basil? Or the son-in-law, which is a crispy farm egg and braised pork shoulder with a thick soy and chili vinegar? Thrillist lauds the “chic space, with refined versions of traditional Thai dishes and kicked-up, more eccentric dishes.” Sounds like Sway is checking all of our boxes, so we are very much looking forward to our visit here!
