Ninrat Kokpluai-Spurlock learned the art of cooking at a young age. In fact, she was often on her grandmother's knee in Udon Thani, when gaining her first culinary experiences. Today she carries on these cherished traditions and recipes at Coat & Thai, one of Austin’s favorite Thai spots in town, let alone food trailers. Declared the Best Thai Food Trailer in Austin by Lazy Smurf's Guide to Life, along with other accolades and placements in many of Austin’s “top” lists, this is food you really can’t miss. Fried rice, noodle dishes, spring rolls, edamame, curries, stir-fried entrees with veggies, garlic and sauces...everything served here is truly top notch, as you would expect from one of Austin’s greatest icons. Stop by Coat & Thai at The Picnic on Barton Springs Road soon so that you too can become a fellow fan.
Pineapple Fried Rice - stir-fried rice with egg, Indian curry, pineapple, raisins, cashews, and veggies- you’ve got your spicy, savory and sweet notes...no wonder many Austinites and tourists alike declare this is as the best fried rice to ever exist.
Yellow Curry - a mild simmering yellow curry sauce with coconut milk, potatoes, onions, and carrots, with white rice and your choice of chicken, shrimp, or tofu.
