Thaibodia, Santa Clara report w/ pics
- hhc Feb 22, 2009 11:13 AM
We went to Thaibodia for the first time because of a 40% off coupon (to use M-F before 6pm and we eat Early!) we got from the Eye section of the Mercury Newspaper. Since work, co-worker, and I get the Mercury I have 2 other coupons for future trips!
It's next to Mr. Chau's in the El Camino Center: to the Left of Smart & Final . Plenty of parking.
They have a bar and 2 small dining areas. Place looks clean & modern inside.
Dishes we tried:
21. Larb w/ pork salad $7.95 - l thought the minced pork (other choices are chicken or beef) was dry. Plenty of lime juice, chilis, cilantro, ground rice (didn't notice). I won't order again.
31. Tom kha soup w/ chicken (choice of pork, veggie, beef). We got the small which is enough for 2-3 people. It was ok. $6.50
64. Duck curry $9.95 - some duck slices in a red curry sauce w/ bamboo shoots, tomatoes (didn't see), pineapple (lots), bell peppers, & basil. I thought it was pretty good, not enough duck for me.
52 pad see ew w/ chicken $7.95 - They Ran Out of the Noodles!! We couldn't get this dish. So sad!
Instead got #42 Ka Ree crab meat fried rice $8.95 - I think I saw ONE teeny tiny piece of crab meat! Biggest rip off Ever! Don't get this dish for the crab meat. Pineapple fried rice another table ordered looked better.
Original cost $33.35 - 40% (13.34) + tax $1.65 = $21.66 Before tip.
Separate men & women bathroom.
Recommended if you get the 40% off Coupon!
