Locals who frequented Peterson Air Force Base may remember Marasri Halter, better known as Fon, from her food truck, Aroi Thai Food. In June she reopened Aroi Thai as an 800-square-foot brick-and-mortar store that’s already drawn regulars for business lunches and take-out dinners.

“Before, I just planned to do the food truck, and then we found a space for the restaurant,” says Fon, a Thailand native. She boasts 10 years in the food industry and a degree in hotel management. “Mostly, what I create looks like street food a little bit more than other Thai restaurants.”

As an example, she names khao man gai, or chicken rice flavored with ginger and served with a gingery sauce, and khao moo daeng, or Thai red pork and rice. Perhaps her most stand-out offerings, though, are her homemade Thai sausages. She offers four kinds: sai krok isan, a fermented garlic-pork-rice sausage; sai krok isan made with cilantro and glass noodles instead of rice; sai ua, a northern Thai pork sausage with several herbs and spices; and kun chiang, a sweet, dried pork sausage also called Chinese sausage. Eat them on-site or take them packaged for home cooking.
