Thai 5
Japan and Thailand replace beer and tacos

Because Beer & Tacos was obviously a waaaay too complicated concept for L5P-ers, the owner’s partnered with a successful Thai/Japanese resto Gwinnett family to bring you T5, which is not a very primitive Terminator prototype, but rather a soothing, non-murderous, nature-inspired lair with an entry-tunnel draped with upside-down umbrellas, and a main dining room boasting a flower-stuffed birdbath and tall, potted bamboo plants.

Proteins get Thai'd up in pineapple fried rice, glass noodles, or any of five curries, while larger options include deep-fried ginger fish, grilled basil leg of lamb, the shrimp/ scallop/ squid/ mussels "Bangkok Lover", and "drunken" duck breast, which was shockingly sauteed & roasted instead of flash-fried.

On the Japan side there're bento boxes w/ teriyaki, tempura, and Massaman curry entrees, maki like the tuna/ salmon/ shrimp/ snow crab Tiger, and upticked special rolls such as the eel/ asparagus/ avocado/ shrimp tempura King Cobra, though if you ask them to pair it with a 40oz, they'll likely tell you to can it.

Since you should keep things authentic, especially if they involve drinking, they’ve got bottled imports ranging from Thailand's Chang and Singha to Japan's Kirin, Sapporo, and Asahi; hot & cold sake; and cocktails like the Mekhong whiskey/orange curacao/lemon juice/Cointreau "Siamese Sour", which is understandable, as that situation is waaaay too complicated.
