Good BYOB Thai Place?
Thanks for the replies, all. We ended up going to Penny's Noodle House in Wrigleyville but will definitely check out some others.
FWIW Penny's was okay, not great. Good outdoor seating area right next to the brown line tracks. Found a great Argentine Malbec (Chakara 2003) that pairs well with spicy Thai, too, so that should keep us looking for new BYOB places for the rest of the summer.
well...I admit to enjoying their bamee noodle soup; years ago in a galaxy far far away Penny's(ca. early-90's) was one of my first introductions to "Thai" food.
You'd do well to explore Opart, Rosded, Spoon *translated menu*, and TAC *translated menu* (among others) to get a finger on serious Chicago Thai
and...yeah...you can easily do worse than Penny's
You're in luck....one of my absolute favorite Thai restaurants happens to be BYOB! It's called Cozy, and they have two locations: one in Evanston, and one in Wrigleyville (Chicago).
Cheap and DELICIOUS food, fast service (but you can hang out for awhile), fun atmosphere, and...BYOB!
Here is the link for the Chicago one: http://www.cozychicago.com/cozy/rollI...
You are more than welcome to carry in at Thai Avenue, Spoon Thai, Sticky Rice, Aroy Thai, and Rosded.
