CPRTV’s Showbiz Pinoy Host Jovie Calma joined me in an informal chat with the world famous Chef Arun Sampanthavivat of Arun’s (Thai Restaurant).
Arun was full of excitement about his new big project — Thai Town Center — that is currently taking shape at 4461 N. Pulaski Rd and is expected to operate in the fall of 2011.
Still in its early phase, Thai Town Center (envisioned to be a commercial cultural center) will house:
*a new Thai restaurant (tapas-style and featuring 4 regions of Thailand)
*a food center/market selling packaged spices and sauces as well as ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat meals
*a Health and wellness center/Thai Spa based on the highest quality spa in Thailand
*a new office for the Thai American Association of Illinois.
