CRESTVIEW — Another food truck is set to open in downtown Crestview this week.
Lao-Thai Xpress will hold a soft opening 11 a.m. March 22 in the Main Street Eats food court. It will add to the diverse range of options along Main Street, joining Megan’s Sunshine Café and Café Rico in the food court.
The owners, Hatsady Siriphokha and Phonpheth Navong had been catering for friends and family and decided to start the business after they got rave reviews.
“They liked the food so much that they asked us to cater it,” Navong said. “Our neighbors and friends enjoy the food, so we are taking the chance to see how many more would like and enjoy the food as well.”
Lao-Thai Xpress will offer a range of dishes including Pad Thai noodles, stuffed chicken wings and homemade Lao sausages. The eatery will also offer Vietnamese Pho on Fridays.
“We wanted to bring more food choice into our city of Crestview,” Navong said. “We moved here a year and a half ago due to the Army, and we have been to places that have many different types of food from all cultures.”
