Stop at this Mississippi gas station and you’ll find authentic Thai cuisine

Mississippi gas stations have a reputation for serving up some of the best food in the state—or at least being located near some killer locally owned restaurants.

Blink and you might miss Zaap Thai Kitchen, a restaurant tacked onto the Oxford Spot gas station on North Lamar Blvd. serving up authentic Thai cuisine locals can’t get enough of (seriously, just see the Yelp reviews). 

Find out more about Zaap Thai and its owner, Rasita Palawan, in this short documentary from the Southern Foodways Alliance.
