Thai Express Pumpkin Curry

The pumpkin curry highlights the ultimate comfort flavors of fall.

Pandemic or not, Thai Express packs up to-go orders of creamy curries, Thai teas, crab rangoons and fresh salads at lightning speed. With a convenient drive though, this Springfield favorite is an ideal spot to pick up lunch or dinner.

For a perfect pair, try the pumpkin curry with the Thai salad. The salad is a generous portion, despite its modest $3 price. In this dish, a housemade ginger dressing coats shredded lettuce, cilantro, carrots, onions, cucumbers and tomatoes.

The pumpkin curry makes a great year-round dish, but is extra fitting for fall. It has a red curry base with pumpkin chunks and other wholesome veggies like green beans, carrots, bell peppers, cabbage, baby corn and broccoli. You can also choose between tofu, chicken, beef or shrimp for your protein.
