Dalaya Thai is a huge supporter of Hickory Nut Gap meat. They stick very closely to their traditional menu from the Northern region of Thailand and use HNG products in over 50% of their menu. They use our pasture raised pork belly, shoulder, skin, loin, ground pork, and 100% grassfed sirloin.

We’re so thankful for our Dalaya’s support over the years, and for bringing incredibly delicious Northern Thai cuisine to WNC! Check out their amazing daily specials on Instagram. And to learn more about them, check out Dalaya’s website. Visit Dalaya Thai at 1084 W Main St., Sylva, NC 28729.
