Best bite.

Face it, summer can be pretty warm in Sarasota. You need some hot, spicy food to go with the climate. And if you haven't tried Amazing Shrimp at Tropical Thai, 1420 Main, you're in for a treat. It's, well, amazing.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Here's the deal. Served mild as it comes to the table, Amazing Shrimp is a wonderful steamed combination of shrimp and vegetables in a sesame peanut sauce that lends itself to spicing up to whatever level of heat you like. Ask your server for some spice and you'll receive a plate with three covered pottery bowls. One contains crushed red peppers such as those used in so much Italian cooking; one offers a fresh, uncooked hot pepper salsa that takes a braver diner than me to choose; and the other holds my favorite, a medium-hot spicy oil that intensifies the entire dish not explosively, but deliciously.

If shrimp aren't your favorite, Tropical Thai also serves Amazing Pork--a great flavor combination--and even Amazing Chicken for those determined to stay on the straight and narrow.
