Sophia's Thai and Korean from MiamiNewTimesBlogs on Vimeo.

Sophia's Thai and Korean has been a vendor at the Asian Culture Festival for 18 years. This year, Sophia was serving some fine foods including a spicy bamboo-strip dish, chicken wings, mixed vegetables, the great-tasting fish on a stick (AKA Thai catfish) and a special Louisiana crawfish.

You can catch Sophia's in the flesh at Wat Miami's Songkran Festival (water festival) and Thai New Year celebration on April 12, 2009. Wat Miami is a Thai Buddhist temple in Homestead officially called Wat Buddharangsi, and it houses a 23-foot-tall golden Buddha. Check it out.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
