Chapel Hill: Thai Palace Report

DweenDaddy | Apr 13, 2005 04:44 PM

I went with my wife the other night for a quick bite, and was fairly underwhelmed. The scene was sterile, boring, bright and pretty empty.
We had the Hoy Jow - which was not quite what I was expecting, but was okay - a sort of pressed meat sausage wrapped in a sheet of tofu and fried.
We also had the so so Tom Yung Gai (hot and sour soup) which had good little mushrooms, dry little pieces of chicken, and was 7.50 for a medium size bowl.
Finally we had the fish of the day - flounder, fried with ginger and scallions for 18 bucks or so. It was overfried and tough on one side and soggy on the other with okay flavor.
Obviously, it was not a great night out!
For those prices, next time I'll head to Lantern with a better scene, more attention to the food, and only a buck or more per dish. Even if some hounds don't dig its fusion thang, its better than weak Thai!
