One of the best dining experiences in Tampa is Thai food served at a Buddhist temple every Sunday morning. You’ll see Thai sausage with woon sen noodles, chicken massaman curry, chilled black rice pudding with taro, empanadas, egg rolls, potstickers, and dumplings. If making a selection feels as difficult as choosing which sunglasses to pack on vacation, go with the hot beef noodle soup and a side of shrimp spring rolls, plus mango sticky rice for dessert. Then settle in at one of the picnic tables in the backyard that’s filled with moss-covered oak trees and orchids. Get there when they open at 9am because they often run out of the best stuff by noon.
