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.It's the 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.
