If you're not
familiar with Hallandale genealogy, you wouldn't know that Eddie Hills and
Sushi Thai Restaurant isn't named after the resident sushi master. And you sure
wouldn't know that the soothing Asian interior of beautiful intricate
woodworking is the refined replacement for the austere atmosphere where locals
once gathered for two-over-easy or a BLT on toasted white bread.
metamorphosis of the former American-style diner, Eddie Hills, a Hallandale
landmark operated under the same family ownership since 1949. The transition
began in 1999 with a sale to new owners, Mr. Sarasern Mongkolsindhu, a Thailand
native who's welknown for his expertise in Asian food specialities. After an
eye-opening refurbishing and vast menu changes, with a courteous tip of the hat
to the former diner concept, Eddie Hills and Sushi Thai is fast becoming a
contender in the great South Florida sushi race.
Revamping the menu involved blending homestyle
American fare with Thai and Japanese food. Of the 140-plus items on the 13-page
menu, most lean toward the Asian flavor.
With the food of three cultures to choose from and a vast menu, it's
hard not to find something you'll like at Eddie Hills.
