"Wet" pad thai in Queens?

Sammiches Jun 9, 2008 07:27 AM

This is a strange question, but what thai places in Queens serve their pad thai wet or slimy versus super-dry/crispy? I prefer my pad thai with more moisture and very spicy.

    I just had a much-moister-than-most-places (in a good way) version at Green Papaya:

      I don't know where you can find pad thai that's more wet, but if you ask them to make it spicy they generally will abide. Some Thai restaurants have a condiment tray of sugar and spices where you personalize your food.

        Have you ever tried Ubol's? They used to be great, a long time ago.

          Ubol's is terrible, don't bother, and I mean really awful. They may have had a few years of greatness but that ended a while ago.

            You must try Red Basil Thai on upper Steinway basicly everything is good. Try their curries it's the real thing....

          i recently tried out leng's in astoria- around 33rd(?) and broadway- had the pad thai. thought it was pretty good, and while not slimy, it was rather moist compared to other pad thai. came with big plump shrimp and i asked for it extra extra spicy, and it sure was...especially after the very spicy papaya salad. very good, i'd def recommend both.
