So you drive up to this place and from the outside its looking like anything but a Thai joint… Modern building, no crazy tall Thai potted plants out front, and clear blocks on the wall. So don’t freak out… the inside is mostly Thai style. Except for a giant humungous chalkboard that was covered in valentines day specials from the week prior…
Ohhh well they, actually are Thai here, which is a nice change of pace. The girls started all giggling when I started to speak my few words of their language and were all happily excited about it.
Pro Tip: This place is easy to miss if you are heading southbound on State College, its just across the side street from Albertsons.
I ended up with Gai Ka Tiem Pet again… have you ever noticed that I tend to like this stuff? Ohhh well it was tasty and adorned in massive veggies (not traditional thai style, *shrugs*), but that is the lunch special for ya. They give you a bowl of veggie soup (I enjoyed it but my coworker thought it was a bit salty). The meal cones on an oblong plate with salad on one side and rice in the middle and the entre on the other side. I powered through my grub fairly quickly and enjoyed it. I just wish I would have been able to pour the juice/gravy over the rice. That always is a great enhancement to the grub.
The service was friendly and filled with lots of smiles and tee hee’s, directly related to my miniscule knowledge of their language I am sure. Overall its worth going back to for sure, and I plan to do so after I finish the local Thai joint challenge that my coworker and I are in the midst of.
Who knows maybe I will run into you sometime.
