Over the summer Morgan attended a fantastic camp at Dynamite Agility Center in Rockville training to become the next American Ninja Warrior :) During drop offs and pick ups I had passed by this unassuming Thai restaurant several times and then decided I needed to check it out. Having lived in Lowell, MA for several years I am accustomed to amazing authentic Southeast Asian restaurants and I'm always on the hunt for similar mom-and-pop shops in the DMV area. Well, after my first experience at Amina's I was hooked! Something important to note and that makes this place a Golden Nugget is that it claims to be the only Halal Thai restaurant in the DMV area.
