Thai Samba took over Tuppee Tong's at Collin Creek Mall.
The food was pretty ordinary. Pad Se Ew (my favorite) had so much meat and broccoli, overshadowing the noodles. $5.99 for lunch with a soup.
Tuppee Tong had the best appetizers of all the Thai restaurants I've been to (incl. some in Bangkok). Their food was less Americanized (less sweet) and maybe that's why they didn't last even for a year... I want Tuppee Tong back :'-(
P.S. The moment we walked into Thai Samba my man said "There's nothing but gringos here." He's a "gringo" himself :-)
Most of them were probably there with coupons (one of them is for a free entree with no purchase necessary). I have some coupons available if anyone wants to pick them up in Richardson. We aren't going back.
