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.
