New Thai place next door to DC Coast (14/K)
Just had first meal there. Scrumptious! Had the drunken noodles: lots of chicken, basil, peppers and garlic, wide rice noodles in a very spicy sauce. Yum! Also, good portion size.
Thank goodness they've finally done something with the space; I've missed the old Cuban place.
Sorry fellow 'hounds, but I just had lunch there (take out) and it's terrible. I had a mediocre experience there about a month ago and I thought I'd give this place another try today ... and I'm never heading back.
This time, I got Thai Fried Rice (with chicken) to go and aside from the non-burnt rice that was layered on top of the rest of the rice, everything was burnt - with random pieces of char sprinkled throughout the dish. On top of the that, the service was terrible - the place wasn't that busy (it was about 12:30).
I suggest Thai Tanic on 14th Street if you're going for Thai food. If not, just get a hot dog from a street vendor - the food will be of the same quality as that from Bankok One.
re: The Doctor
Hmmm... Called something like Bangkok One? Up till about 18 months ago, it was a good Cuban carry-out but then it was vacant for the longest time. Maybe it was a Thai place for a short time before a renovation? In any event, it has signs that say "new," so I suppose new decor could still qualify as such...
