The Scoop from Cafe Bites: Thai Jo Opens in West Palm

When one guy leaves town, there's no reason to waste any time finding the next guy, especially when the new one is spicier than the first.

Heading out is Mark's location in West Palm Beach's CityPlace. In its place comes the just-opened Thai Jo, part of the growing and great Sushi Jo empire.  

In just the last few years, the original Sushi Jo in West Palm Beach

has grown to include the adjoining Sake Jo and expanded to a Boynton

Beach and Palm Beach Gardens location. Owner Joseph Clark also

previously opened a Thai Jo in Palm Beach Gardens, where Jo fans got

the first taste of his Drunken Noodle (rice noodles stir fried with

basil, bell peppers, and carrots - $12 with chicken or pork, $15 for

beef or shrimp).

The stars couldn't be aligned more perfectly to

begin this new relationship because a date with Thai Jo won't set you

back nearly as much as a night of gorging on his sake and sushi. The

menu has several curry, stir-fry, and noodle dishes for $12 and $15,

lunch specials for $10, and tops out with Jo's Lobster Curry for $28.

With so much Jo, there's plenty of tasty Thai goodness to go around.
