Pad Thai Restaurant [SF] - La Lengua Chronicles Part 29
Date Dined: 12/17
After a somewhat small meal at ICHI (see: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/882985 ), my dining companion and I decided we were still hungry, so we ordered a single order of pumpkin curry from Pad Thai. It was actually very good — a flavorful red curry (plenty of spices and fish sauce) with chunks of kabocha squash, chicken, carrots and a few other random veggies. We ended up having some curry broth leftover, and this evening I sauteed some asparagus with it...and excellent use of leftover.
I had sort of written off this place, since I really like Thai places in the Tenderloin, but I think they might be pretty decent! A menu item that sounds interesting to me is the Thep Sa-Wei - described as: Crispy crepe filled with grated coconut meat mixed with ground shrimp, ground peanut, tofu, scallion and bean sprout. Served with cucumber salad. I didn't get to try it, but would love to hear if someone else has.
