Style Weekly dines at Mom’s Siam 2

Mom’s Siam 2 is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

Mom’s Siam is a staple for any lover of Thai food, so it was good news for food lovers when they moved into the former Hana Zushi spot at (1309 E. Cary Street) and opened Mom’s Siam 2. The review in Style Weekly is mostly positive except at the end where it points to issues with consistency in the level of spiciness. For the record, I’m always on the better too hot than bland scale of things.

If the measure of a kitchen is its soup, Mom’s Siam 2 scores high with its winning chicken-broth-based, hot and sour soup ($3.95), easily the best I’ve had in Richmond. Demonstrating both characteristics of its name, the pleasantly spicy soup will be my recommendation come winter when sniffles and colds necessitate a homey prescription to clear the head and warm the soul.
