Drunken Noodles in Logan Circle?
Okay, everyone was so helpful before, I have to try again:
I'm having a huge hankering for drunken noodles tonight for dinner and I live in the Logan Circle area. Where should I go? For those of you who are about to jump to offer Thai Tanic, their drunken noodles are pretty dismal -- extremely small portion. Everything else there is spectacular, but this dish seems to be a big miss.
Anyone have some ideas?
This is not about Logan Circle, sorry, but I used to work with a native Thai who took it upon himself to show me authentic hole-in-the-wall Thai places for lunch. I used Drinken Noodles (kee mao) as my benchmark, and for the past ten years, I've tried them all over the D.C. area.
The best so far was in a little hole-in-the-wall strip mall on Glebe Road in Arlington, Bangkok Siam. It's not a fancy place, but it's very goooood!
In Logan Circle, you have quite a few choices for very good Thai. Rice on 14th is really good and has a NY-atmosphere...It's a little pricier than your typical take-out Thai. Simply Home on U (between 14th and 15th) is also good. I've heard their happy hour is worth it as well.
And if you're willing to walk a few extra blocks, Regent Thai on 18th (near T) has wonderful, well-priced food in a nice atmosphere. The Drunken Noodle Grilled Salmon is absolutely amazing, as are the other dishes I've tried.
I live in the Logan/Shaw area as well and the BEST Thai food I ever had was from Thai X-ing. I recommend getting carry out as their delivery hours a little bit off. It's a one wok shop, so the wait can be a bit long, but it is soooo worth it. They have the best prices and the food is so very delicious. They also have drunken noodles. Oh, and the owner is the sweetest man.
