We all know that the pandemic has been hard on the restaurant business. Which is why we had to *pinch* ourselves when we learned that Dancing Crab Noodle House had opened in Dormont.
You may be familiar with Dancing Crab’s original location in the South Side. Dormont’s restaurant is essentially the same as that one, just farther South.
We can’t get enough Thai food which is why we looove stopping by Dormont for a Thai fix. Dancing Crab is Dormont’s third Thai restaurant; joining local favorites My Thai and Thai Spoon (and there’s also Thai Touch Kitchen just down the road in Mt. Lebanon). …Which is the best? It’s a Thai!
A group of us waltzed into Dancing Crab recently and enjoyed a mix of our faves – Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, and drunken noodles along with crab rangoon, spring rolls, and pot stickers. All were quite delicious and (perhaps best of all) reasonably priced. Apps were between $6-9 and almost all dinners were priced under $20.
And, just beclaws it’s also worth mentioning, right now (as they are getting their feet wet) they are also slinging some cocktails for guests in the hopes of getting some feedback (and name suggestions!) on their concoctions. (PS. We plan on going back and eating and drinking a lot… or at least until we successfully get ones named “Pad to the Bone”, “In the Nood”, or “Pineapple Fried Ice”).
The next time you’re in the mood for a winning Thai restaurant, pick Dancing Crab.This content was provided by a local, independent contributor to Made in PGH, a lifestyle blog.
