It's no secret that we love the Asian restaurant Long Grain because it serves the best Thai food in Camden. It's our go-to for lunch and dinner in town when we're feeling the fresh flavors of the Thai and Vietnamese dishes on its menu. We're excited to share the news with our guests that Long Grain in Camden has moved into a newly expanded space! After eight years in its small space on Elm Street, the restaurant is expanding onto Washington Street, where the new space also has room for an Asian market.
Plans for Long Grain's moved were announced nearly three years ago, but the new space, only a block away, needed extensive renovation. Now that the building is up to code, Long Grain has moved in and is ready for its influx of summer visitors. The hours remain the same, as does the menu although it changes frequently. There are a few more seats in the new space, meaning it will be a little bit easier to snag a table at one of Camden's best dining destinations—but we still recommend making a reservation.
The move also means Long Grain has opened a small market of Asian groceries next door—we've already snagged our favorite flavor of Pocky and browsed the selection of teas, noodles, and snacks. With more space, chefs Ravin Nakjaroen and Paula Palakawong and their team are expanding their in-house preparation of items like roasted duck, Char Sui roasted pork, and crispy pork belly. We're looking forward to seeing what culinary creativity will be unleashed now that the kitchen at Long Grain has more space to spread its wings. Next time you're on a lark to Camden, be sure to enjoy the best Thai food in Camden at Long Grain.
