The Global Table: Mimi's at Findlay Market serves up crispy egg rolls and curry cooked 'with love'

CINCINNATI - Our "Global Table" column explores the international side of Greater Cincinnati dining. Follow WCPO contributor, Grace Yek, as she talks to the chefs and owners of these dining spots about their food, culture and journey.

If you go to a Thai house, you're going to eat. That's how Sithi "Sam" Assanuvat rolls, as he goes about cooking up tasty Thai food at Mimi's Gourmet Egg Rolls and Curry Bowls.

The simple menu is a snapshot of what's good on Assanuvat's dinner table. If you're unsure of what to get, ask for a sample. Assanuvat is only too happy to oblige. What's more, he really savors the chance to talk about Thai food.

Egg rolls rule at Mimi's. The gourmet egg roll fan base--which extends all the way to Cleveland and Indiana--means 450 to 600 egg rolls fly off the deep fryer every week. The crispy goodness includes pork, chicken and vegetables--freshly made and fried to order.

Fancy a curry bowl? You have three kinds to choose from: Massaman, Yellow and Red. The Massaman curry is mildly spicy, with the Yellow Curry moderately so. The Red Curry sounds off the high heat alert.
