The Thai Shack in Yonkers
Came across this place on Yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-thai-shac...) the other day, and it immediately piqued my interest. A roadside Thai takeout opposite a gas station and Yonkers Raceway? Count me in just for the novelty factor!
So I got some green papaya salad and chicken green curry for takeout today. Both were quite good, and they definitely didn't skimp on the spices. Also good value in terms of quantity. I'll definitely come back and try their other items when I'm in the area.

I've been thinking of stopping by there for several weeks but didn't feel like taking one for the team if it was bad.
I was really surprised at the chicken Tom Yum soup. It had coconut in it instead of being a semi-clear tart and tangy soup, and was so thick it was unappetizing, and had the tiniest pieces of chicken. It was like a mix of tom Yum and Tom Ka soup.
The Som Tum green papaya salad was ok, but not very complex.
The chicken Pad Ped was ok, but again, not very complex.
