Okay, wow, I'm impressed. Way too close to my house. Way too close.
We both ordered the strip-steak skewers. This is one order. Good but nowhere as good as the rest of the meal, and a little tough. Still, $5...

I got a #5 combo (dark meat chix, chix wing, curry, roti, sticky rice) and an iced Thai coffee.
My companion had the beef cheek and an iced Thai tea.
We got there at 2 and managed to get one of the four outdoor tables. I don't know how easy that is to do if you're in at a more popular eating time.
My g-d, that chicken, wow. A non-PFGer had told me that the fried chicken had passed the overnight cold test. I'm hoping my leftover chicken will make it that long. It keeps calling my name from the refrigerator. I could also marry that roti and curry. Polygamous marriages are allowed here, aren't they?
I didn't get to steal a taste of the beef cheek, and while my companion liked it, she thought the portion was small, and the fried chix was much better.
Iced drinks came in canning jars. Apparently beer does too. No idea about mixed drinks. I have no idea if Jill-O still comes here, but I thought I should say something. Anyways, drinks were fine. Would have loved more.
We each got more roti, because roti. I took half the chicken home along with its sauce. I would have loved to have taken the curry home, but I had a hard enough time getting the little monkey dish/plastic tub for the ginger-soy-fish sauce.
Sticky rice, frequently my favorite part of Thai & Viet food, was underwhelming. It's just plain old sticky rice. Course, good to have a palate cleanser when everything on the plate is so rich.
Current special is a brisket in green curry. I'd love to try that. And the ground pork. And, well, everything on both sides of the menu.
Please don't go there. Don't tell anyone. Please.
