Wonderful Wondee Siam

I had a great meal at Wondee Siam on 9th Ave. between 52/53rd st. tonight. I've got a friend who's interning in the kitchen that ensured the food would be made "Thai Spicy" and she helped us pick a couple of entrees that the kitchen did well. We ordered a green curry, and a dish which name reminded me of "Ka-Pow" as did the flavor. A very good and well spiced rendition of beef salad and some small round fish cakes served with a peanut dipping sauce were both winners as well.

Everything was assertively spiced and had me sweating joyfully. Unfortunately a dish of Pad Thai ordered later by a friend without any knowledge from the kitchen of who we were seemed neatly done but not as flavorful or spicy. I guess you can approach Sripraphai level of Thai cooking in Manhattan as long as the right person is in the kitchen and they have faith in your tolerance for heat.

Enjoy!
