In the midst of a string of closings by local institutions comes this sad announcement from Aurora: Thai Street Food has shuttered for now as its owner looks for another possible location. Owner Utumporn “Anna” Killoran has stopped serving noodles and curries at 11650 Montview Boulevard, Westword reported Thursday morning.
Killoran tells Westword the closure was due to a terminated lease agreement with the building’s new owner. She moved into the small restaurant space in 2011 after success serving from a cart on 16th Street. For a time customers could dine-in at Thai Street Food, but that option all but disappeared when Killoran made her business primarily takeout. Still, ordering from Thai Street Food was never easy, which became a part of its intrigue.
Here are the restaurant’s rules straight from its website:
Killoran made each dish “one at a time” according to the phone orders she received during nine hours five days weekly. Her brief menu started with fresh crab and cheese wontons and finished with a shrimp and jelly noodle salad. Fans swore by her pad Thai and tom kha soup and were willing to wait hours for them.
